My Crafty Weekend


Happy Monday my fellow crafties! What a weekend, what a weekend! We went to a sugar bush (MMMm freshly boiled maple syrup!) had a date night and did some major Grandparent visiting. Needless to say I did not get a single stitch of crafting done. I still have some pics of what I got up to last week though.

With my machines doing weird things I could only craft, not sew (Beyond frustrating!) And I am desperately trying to make enough stuff for an upcoming craft fair (my first!) so I felt pretty darn accomplished when I made a six brooches and twenty two hair clips! I wanted to show you pictures today but alas, we are having a mid March snow storm so natural lighting in this house is only a fantasy.But I have since worked out my machine issues and will have oodles of fabric goodies to share soon!But, enough of my craft endeavors, what you want to see is yours!

Do these make you hungry? They should. Denise of Extreme Personal Measures
linked to this yummy looking dish. To get the recipe for these personal macaroni pies visit the post here.

Melissa of Those Northern Lights shared with us this wonderful coin box. Made for her father-in-law, she embroidered the image and used corduroy for the coin 'ridges'. So cute, and so clever.

Lori of Paisley Passions linked up photos of her craft space. Serious crafter envy here. I was totally geeking out on all of her storage ideas and solutions. Great job on the deco too. To see some great pics (some seriously messy before ones too!) visit the post here.

Wow you guys have been busy! What have you been up to lately? Baking, scrapbooking, sewing? How about papier mache? Distressed any great flea market finds? Share with us your creative endeavors! Feel free to grab and share the buttons below! Also, don't forget to visit the link before yours and leave some good comment karma! Have fun crafties!

Hope your sewing machine starts working right again soon. And good luck with the craft show.
