An International Craft Swap Update
Just a little bit.
Probably due to the fact that I haven't started yet.
And complicated by the fact that I haven't picked a project yet.
I need some help. Since I'm not super crafty & I try to like doing crafts-y things but I don't really have any amazing artistic ability I just kind of flounder around with a zillion half hatched ideas in my brain.
So I started surfing the web. And this is where you come in.
I've discovered a few projects that I think even I could pull off without investing too many hours & too many dollars.
All I need you to do is let me know which project you think you would most like to receive as a gift. That's all. Not too hard, right? So leave a comment here or on facebook or tell me in person. Please don't be silent! Because I know you have an opinion lurking around in there *grin*
A dressy scarf Even though I have a degree in Home Economics & I had to take several sewing classes, I'm not much of a seamstress. However, I do think I could pull this off. I am a little intimidated because the girl I'm gifting seems to be quite the talented seamstress.
Anthro Geological Spectrum Necklace I've never made a necklace in my life. But I did make a bunch of beaded bracelets for Christmas one year. That gives me the confidence to think that I could probably pull this one off & make a humdinger of a necklace!
A bracelet from a belt This idea comes from Malia at one of my favorite blogs, Yesterday on Tuesday. She's full of easy ideas & all sorts of fun. You should check her blog out sometime.
A Chalkboard Candelabra This idea is also from Malia. I think this is the project that I really want to do. It just looks fun & it's something completely different than any other crafty thing I've done. And I think Mike would have to help me. I'm always looking for excuses to spend time with him. Don't tell, but I think he's cute *grin*
Anything you can think of to recommend to me. I'm open for suggestions!
Thanks for all of your help!
