I know it sounds strange, but I normally do my best crafting while watching TV, or multitasking so that I am not paying 100% attention. I suppose it helps to stop me from over-thinking it too much and to just trust my instincts and not to worry if something isn’t perfect.
On the weekend the boy and I were scouring art shops to get the right supplies for his recent project. I have been looking out for cute paper fasteners (they are actually called ‘brads’ and are normally in the scrapbooking aisle) for ages, so when I saw these I didn’t mind that they were a little expensive (about $5/pack). I’m pretty sure you could find them cheaper at officeworks or online but I got caught up in the moment in a fancy art store.
I didn’t actually have a particular project in mind, but rustled up some cream felt and ribbon from my craft box and whipped up this little baby during an episode of Breaking Bad (have I mentioned how good that show is?!?).
Can’t wait to pair it with neutrals and pastel colours.
After that success, I made a grey and silver one. Don’t like it as much as the cream – although I am head over heels for grey at the moment (and it matches my new shoes!).
