My Crafty Weekend - Baking and Refashioning My Favourite Kind of Crafty Weekend

Happy Monday my crafty amigas! I hope you had a gorgeous sun filled weekend like we did! We rolled in the grass, picked some dandelions, played hopscotch and walked through green spaces. But, when we were not have super fun time outside as a family, I was inside created masterpieces as usual.

Mom's Macaroons

I made my Mom's recipe for chocolate macaroons. I learned that they are much sweeter than I remember them and next time I am going to lessen the sugar amount by a half cup and try to extrude them through an icing bag fitted with wide mouth piece to make them more uniform. What can I say? I like my cookies to conform!

Scarf Final Product (9)

Last but not least, I did some refashioning...for me! I know, crazy right? What mama sews for herself these days? Well I did. I refashioned a pair of pajama pants found on a recent thrifting trip into a gorgeous scarf! I am hoping today to create some matching accessories whilst Wednesday naps. I will have a tutorial for you tomorrow. Seriously, it is so easy and so pretty!

Something devastating happened yesterday. *deep breath* My camera broke! *lip quiver* I do have a back up but the pictures on my blog may be of a lesser quality. It is a point and shoot I was never very happy with. I am hoping to have my Olympus replaced this week but I am not made of money and the Mister is busy with other things. *big sigh*

But enough of my lamenting. On to your wonderfully crafty projects!


Speaking of wonderfully crafty, are these bears not adorable? Last week, Pati from A Crafty Escape linked up these adorable bears she made from the book Sew Darn Cute by Jenny Ryan. I am so jealous. I have had this book on my Chapter's wish list for what seems like ever and she managed to borrow a copy from her library. The lucky duck!  I really think her bears are sweet. As are so many of her crafty projects. A quick tour of her main page brought sewing projects, gluing projects and cake decorating.


Now show us what you have been working on, baking up, finishing and loving!
