New Projects for April!
Welp, it has been a week of radio silence here on the blog. Why? It's not because I've been too busy to keep up with posting, but because my darling dear Poesy accidentally kicked my laptop off of my bed. Thankfully she just killed the screen. I was afraid I had lost a bunch of files once again. I'm here now on a loaner computer and playing a big round of catchup!
As I mentioned a few weeks back, I'm regularly contributing on ABM again! I'm excited to get back to a more consistent schedule. If I don't make time for that creative brainstorming, I often find myself in a creative funk. Setting that time aside to plan and make is so important to me!
Anyway, here are a couple of the posts you can find over on ABM this month!
My theme for this month has been simpler, more practical crafts. I am often guilty of being overly-ambitious when it comes to DIYs, so this first project was perfect for simplifying. This bunny is "half-way homemade" meaning the doll was bought at a craft store and I went about customizing it. She was a hit for Easter, but really you could make this doll any time of the year. You could even switch out what type of animal you're making!
Again, with the overcomplicating: when I first started this wall hanging, my plans for it were so unnecessarily involved. Stepping back and allowing myself to use good old fashioned wood, yarn, and hot glue turned out to be something lovely to display in our home! Actually, my craft group is getting together next week to make their own! I'm so excited to do this with friends!
You can find the full tutorial for the Bunny DIY here and the Statement Wall Hanging here. Happy Monday, friends! xo.
