This year, I want to be more creative. I enjoy creating things in the kitchen, but the results usually disappear within a day or two. I want to get more crafty and artsy. In the past few years I made a lot of card with my photographs and I’ve knit a bit. But I want to knit more. Recently I got an old Singer sewing machine for $10 from a thrift store, as even though I haven’t used a sewing machine since I was 15 (half my lifetime ago!), I want to relearn how to sew. I want to get back into painting. And I want to make more random crafty things. Mainly bird things. 😉
So today I have a tiny craft project to share with you. My mum had the idea of putting up mini clotheslines and using mini clothespins to hang cards up years ago. So today when I was thinking about displaying cards it occurred to me that was the perfect way to do it.
It works best if you have a narrow wall space to hang them across (like here beside my furnace!), such as between a window and a corner. The mini clothespins came from a dollar store (quite a few years ago, so hopefully they are still available if you like the idea.) The bird cutouts were from my sister Pamela and can be printed off here. The teacups were made by my sister Michelle.
I’ve added a “Crafts” category– hopefully I will have more posts to add to it! As for now, I’m working on making some of these cool felt owls.
Do you craft, knit, or sew? Are you an artist of some sort?
What are you currently working on?
