While most people have likely spent their time gearing up for the holidays, we’ve been largely working on the house (check out these links here and here).

We now have a dedicated crafts room – whoopee!!  I intend for many crafty things to happen in here.  It’s somewhat organized and is functional enough for now. There has been a bit of crafting in the last few weeks!

I’ve made curtains for almost the entire house.  The living room and master bathroom (or en-suite as is said in real estate – namely Love it or List it!) don’t have curtains made by me as yet.  We’re still determining what we’re going to do in the living room, so the curtains will wait and thankfully the drapes that came with the house, fit the room enough for us to stay.  The bathroom, well we’re going to do some remodeling in there, but not quite yet since we’ve already remodeled the main bath.

Here’s a sneak peek!

Despite my intentions, the curtains have yet to be hung, so no pictures. You’ll just have to wait. I do almost wish I had to sew more curtains, I had so much fun picking out affordable fabrics (thanks for having sales, Hancock and Jo Ann) and sewing the curtains together.  Maybe I’ll make some and store them to put in an online shop one day – it’s a dream…!

I was also able to squeeze in just a little bit of time for this homemade gift project for my siblings from Oh Honestly. Sorry there aren’t any pictures of my project, but the name thing kinda got n the way. Nonetheless, the project was fairly quick and simple. I chose to mount the name trees to a basic poster board and outline them with fabric I found in our stash.

Whether you want to give them as a gift or just do something quick and fun for your house, they’re definitely worth trying.

I also made a wallet for Hun from this tutorial by Modest Maven.

It didn’t turn out as I’d hoped the first time.  The fabric I used for the main portion of the wallet was too thick and bulky and the lining too stretchy.  It was much thicker than anything Hun would ever dream of carrying.  This is what it did look like.

Yeah, pretty bulky, but with pretty colors, huh?

It was quick enough to stitch up that I made a new one and I’ll surprise Hun with it for Christmas, since he doesn’t know I made this second one.

sorry about the flash spots, lighting wasn’t the best

And lastly, a fleece blanket worth crocheted edging for Baby Boy.

Isn’t that a splendid yellow color?

Hun’s mom and grandma will be here today. So, I need to get of this computer and get back to getting the house a bit more presentable.

    Holy cow! A craft room! That is so awesome. I would so love one in our house, for my husband. I don’t have a crafty bone in me, but he is amazing. Awesome wallets!

      We’re so fortunate to have this wonderful house that we can do great things in, Tamara!

      Crafty husbands are to be honored, in my opinion, because they’re bold enough to do crafty things in today’s world. That’s great. 🙂
