Slow Crafting

I have not had much energy for crafting this month. It has come in slow, small spurts. A little here, a little there. I have determined not to be discouraged if all I have is 10-15 minutes a day. All those minutes do add up and bit by bit, a project can be completed!

This felt heart wreath was fun project and came in under $10.

This Quilted List Taker was fun as well as functional! I had been wanting to have a pretty notebook that would lay flat on my counter as I count the daily gratitudes of grace-gifts in my life. This turned out to be cheery and perfect!

I still have a scarf on my knitting needles that I am hoping to complete a little, there a little. I am learning to take the seemingly small moments and create something. If I wait for the "perfect" timing, then I will be waiting a long time! I am just trying to jump in where I am and with the time I have in this busy season of young children. And it's working!

That heart wreath is fabulous!! I'm wondering if I can squeeze in the time to make one before V-tines!!

love that you have a running list of blessings. We've been trying to do that in our home as well, we call them "God sightings": answers to prayers, amazing things that happened, etc. Your notebook is waaay cuter though, ha! I may have to come up with some kind of cover...hmmm.
Cute blog!
