Summer is Coming

As I start crafting again like crazy, it comes to mind that I haven't posted anything in quite a while.  Easter was a whirlwind of craft projects ranging from easy to insane.  My church was most gracious in asking me to help them decorate for permanence.  It was so much fun designing, budgeting, shopping and creating.  But, I'm glad it is now over and I am full of gratitude for the many women that helped me make it happen.  We made many silk flower arrangements and that was one amazing craft day.  I made masters and my church friends copied them beautifully.  We also made around 300 bird ornaments to decorate the trees with.  That craft project was immense and very time consuming.  We are all glad that it is over and that we can now sit back and enjoy the fruits of our labor.

Now on to personal crafting.  New projects, new ideas (with some help from my trusty friend, the internet).  There are many things to come this summer and I for one am very excited for this.  My design studio is now up and operational, which helps so much in the flow of creativity.

My first project after Easter is this headband.  I saw the idea online.  Quick and very sturdy.  I broke a sewing machine needle trying to do it that way and so I resorted to just sewing it by hand, then hot gluing the trinkets/flowers on afterward.  Let me know what you think.
