The Quaint Crafter
For this month, I was planning to unveil a pattern for a TV table runner I’ve been working on. However, after several failed attempts at the pattern, I decided it might need an additional month. Crafting is supposed to be my escape, after all, but sometimes I get frustrated when things don’t come out theContinue reading “Wooden Easter Sign”
This quaint craft is perfect to do with your kids on a cold afternoon. After this flu/cold/COVID season, many of us have a bunch of those little plastic measuring cups that come attached to the top of cough syrup bottles. Instead of trashing them, I’ve come up with a small and easy craft to upcycleContinue reading “Measuring Cup Ornament”
This past Christmas season I was shopping at TJ Maxx looking for some last-minute items for stocking stuffers. In the long, winding checkout line, a small white box caught my eye. It was made from lightweight balsam wood and had a simple snowflake stamped on it. At $7.99, I decided to throw it on topContinue reading “Winter Box with Lights”
For this holiday month, I wanted to share a super simple craft. The best part is that it’s also an inexpensive one. Even though the holidays are a busy time, I like to try to add something crafty to everything I give to let the recipient know I care. Recently, while I was perusing Amazon,Continue reading “Personalized Wooden Gift Tags”
I wanted to try something different to decorate my front door this year. This is the time of year I stalk the local grocery stores, trying to find an inexpensive wreath to hang on my door. Since I don’t have a storm door, I like to get a real wreath so that it can holdContinue reading “Norway Spruce Holiday Swag”
Much like crafting, coffee is another passion of mine. The first thing I reach for when I wake up is my precious morning cup. There’s something comforting about holding a hot cup of coffee early in the morning. Because I drink so much coffee, I have an assortment of coffee mugs that I use. I’mContinue reading “The Coffee Frame”
The last few weeks at work have been hard on me. With the world adjusting to life in what seems like an endless pandemic, everyone seems stressed. Working in healthcare has its challenges, but a particularly tough patient had me in tears recently. It’s funny (or not so funny) how one person can ruin yourContinue reading “Wooden Butterfly Figurine”
A while back I was at a thrift store when I spotted a pair of plaster shelf elves amongst a pile of Christmas ornaments. I love unusual Christmas decorations, especially vintage ones. So, for a buck, they were mine. Onto my windowsill they went, but I knew I needed to rehab them to bring themContinue reading “Turn Vintage Elves Into Shady Shelf Elves”
I took a knitting class over twenty years ago with my sisters, aunt and cousin. It was offered at my old high school at night as part of the continuing education program. The teacher was great, and she started us off with a simple mitten pattern to learn the ropes of knitting. Making mittens isContinue reading “Mini Mittens Christmas Ornament”
With the end of spring nearing, I wanted to create another pin art piece that depicted a perfect summer scene. The first thing that came to mind for me was the Monarch Butterfly. Living in Massachusetts, Monarch butterflies tend to arrive in my area around July and August. Since they lay their eggs on theContinue reading “Milkweed & Monarch Pin Art”
