My Mom is here this week for a visit. That translates into a bit of free time for me! As of late I have become a bit addicted to Pinterest. If you are not familiar with Pinterest then you probably have a lot more free time on your hands than I do. You probably also don't feel compelled to craft, bake and organize within an inch of your life.
I have been using my free time to do a bit of shopping, a bit of reading and a bit of crafting. I am a novice crafter at best. I often try my hand at something only to have it turn out nothing like it should...that goes for crafts, sewing, cooking and you name it. I wish I could say that I had true talent in one thing. I take that back. I do have true talent at failing equally in any number of crafty pursuits.
Today, I got it into my head to make some spring art for my fireplace mantle. So, I got out my trusty glue gun and my fabric stash. This is what I pulled together:
I love it! I am so psyched that I made something that I actually like! It was quite simple to do and if I can do it then anybody can. All I did was glue a piece of fabric to a piece of cardboard that I cut a bit smaller than the back of the frame. I then freehanded a little bird onto another piece of fabric and glued that to the base. I did the same with the wing and then I used some yarn for the feet. Easy!
I have some more crafty projects that I want to tackle this afternoon. Hopefully, I am on a streak and they will turn out well!
