Nothing like getting some crafting done before work!

I’ll be posting all the cards I been working on soon x #crafting #beforework #calming #relaxing #craftsomething #craftsomejoy #smile #enjoytheday #coffee #haveagoodday #cricut #cricutofficial

Even in the craziest of times, it's great to know there are extremely talented masters of their trade out there putting in the work and making masterclass functional pieces of art.

Thank you @thescrawnylumberjack for the incredible work you've done with this. I'm absolutely in love with it and look forward to putting it to work. #bushcraft #americanmade #supportsmallbusiness #handcrafted #firestarter #buildsomething #craftsomejoy

Crafting never stops and it keeps me sane🤣 #latenightdiy #decoratedmirror #mirrorframe #craftsomejoy #myheartishappy #mytherapy #crafterforlife❤️✂💡

Who here experiences overwhelm from all the possibilities?


The fear of making the wrong choice?

The terrible thought of — what if I make a thing and it doesn’t work? Or, worst, someone doesn’t like it?

Fact: There is always someone who will try to suck the joy out of the room.

Wish them well. Wave 👋🏽 bye. ( Or, 🖕🏽, as my temperament is more inclined towards 😂)

But, also, BIGGER fact: There are always more people who want to cheer you on, given the chance, because we all know making a thing is hard work.

So, choose — eenie, meenie (but no meanies, please), miney, mo — one thing to make today. Don’t fret if it’s the right thing. Just DO a thing. Because chances are it’s just the thing to get you going.

Writes Austin Kleon in Steal Like An Artist 🧑‍🎨: Don’t wait until you know who you are to get started.

Hey, it’s Wednesday.

Two new flowers for this gloomy Sunday.

The first is inspired by the zinnia.

I hand cut and colored each fringed stamen and petal. Materials used: @liagriffith extra fine crepe paper, pan pastels and floral tape plus @aleenesdiy Tacky Glue.

Flower two is based on a dahlia. I used my @silhouette.inc Cameo Pro to cut the petals out of cardstock then shaped and hot glued each one to create the bloom.
