Craft

There is a really cool place here in Austin called Craft. It is a crafter’s dream. All of the art supplies you could dream of and more, are super organized in large studio. The best part? You get to have fun, be creative, make a mess but don’t have to clean it up after!! TheContinue reading “Craft”

Doorknob Covers

When my Mother-in-Law asked me to make her some doorknob covers, I said, huh? I didn’t know that was a thing! I started googling ( after I said yes, of course), and found it’s quite common for several reasons: to keep naughty children from opening doors they shouldn’t, decoration, and wall dents/scratches. Apparently my MILContinue reading “Doorknob Covers”

Macramé Wall Hanging

Despite the fatigue from making my round table runner in macramé, I was still inspired to continue working in the medium. I think I enjoy keeping my hands busy at night while watching tv.

It is very time consuming, making little knots round and round and around. It’s not so bad when watching tv,Continue reading “Macrame Update”

Dad’s Scarf

Whew! Finished it just in the nick of time! My parents are set to arrive in about a week and I owed them each a scarf. My mom’s scarf was finished weeks ago but I sort of lost some steam after. When I finally got my focus back, I went looking for the right yarn.Continue reading “Dad’s Scarf”

Macrame Disaster

I was looking for a round table runner on Etsy, something kind boho/farmhouse to go on a coffee table. I searched and searched and thought I had found something I liked. I purchased it along with two other items. I thought. A day or two later I went back to check on my orders andContinue reading “Macrame Disaster”
