I'm excited to share the first project for my arts and crafts challenge! First challenge was to make something to hang. I created a mixed media patchwork piece, seen above in my living room. I'm slowly bringing in more mustards to my home decor ever since I visited Urbano Bistro in Rotorua (amazing food over there guys!). Below is a shot of the piece hanging, I prefer it sitting on the shelf more.
It's true! time goes by so fast when you're having so much fun! I've had a really productive night, lots of design work for a client done and I have just printed these off for my Something To Hang craft challenge.
I'm hoping to do something with these tomorrow before I take the kids swimming.
End of term three today, Which I am very excited about, because it means I can concentrate more on the business. Justin is a way working on our house for the weekend in Rotorua. Which means I can leave the house as messy as I want... haha not really. But I will be doing more arts and crafts since I don't have to pack up everything at a certain time. I like to have a clean house for my hard working hubby everytime he comes home from work you see. Now I don't have to worry about limiting myself this way, at least for this weekend anyway. For three weeks I am going to focus more on arts and crafts. I have completely neglected this passion of mine for the most part this year, I am sure a lot of you ladies are in the same boat with your busy schedule too. I have moved twice this year and trying not to compromise on teaching the kids, my health and keeping my home as sane as possible. Keeping the 'sane home' & 'creative side of the business' are what I find hard to keep up in the air. So I am thankful for this (scheduled)teaching break. Oh and it wouldn't be fair if I didn't involve the kiddies in my arts & crafts binge too. So this is my arts and crafts challenge. Which will run between September 21st - October 17th. Make something to hang Make something to give Make something to flip Make something to store Make something to wear Make something to display And yes I'll be sharing my projects & progress with you all on my blog, as well as what the kids make. Off to do some more planning!
