This week has been spent looking for jobs (keep praying) and reading. I was going non-crafting crazy and was trying to figure out what I could do that takes up no space.... I finished a baby blanket (which I forgot to photo). I tried to shuffle boxes to find my works-in-progress box, but it didn't work (now all the boxes are straighter in the garage though)
I finally ordered a pattern I had been admiring on etsy. I originally saw them here. I love her colors. I want to make a HUGE pillow for me and one for Kelly. I am also thinking about making some nativity puppets and wanted some ideas. I thought I would start with the actual pattern and picked out felt that matches Kelly's love for green. I might have to make Ireland some purple ones though....
I don't think I've ever really embroidered, so it was a new challenge. I think they turned out cute. I didn't give them mouths.... The larger size will have more embellishment.
I found another blog addiction today called www.thisyounghouse.com , it is an adorable couple about our age who are super awesome do-it-yourselfers and a great source of inspiration... except it makes me want to spend money :).... They use "moodboards" and some of my other blogs do "inspirationboards" for weddings and decor. I decided I needed to do some of my own, Britton is supposed to put our photoshop on my computer so if I can acutally pull them off I will post some. They include our already owned furnature and then what I want for our spaces.... right now I am just working on bedroom and livingroom. We finally agreed on an accent color for our bedroom, so I think I am going to work on a matryoshka to match that color scheme and I have some fabric I already own that I might make a pillow out of. (I found that box.)
So... Keep praying that we find jobs soon and (I am a complete idiot and Britton got me a new digital camera for our anniversary (ours had gotten stolen out of my desk at school) and on the first night we went out I managed to lose it. I swore it was in the car, but I can't find it. So if that would amazingly reappear that would be amazing too.)
