Feeling Crafty!

Despite the fact that I do not fancy myself a crafter, I do enjoy making things from time to time when the mood strikes me. It seems the mood has struck me a few times this week!

My first project was a Grocery Bag Organizer, because despite the fact that I own resusable grocery bags I never seem to remember to bring them to the store with me; Thus resulting in a bag surplus that is begging to take over my pantry. The tutorial for this project can be found at http://www.creativelydomestic.com/2009/01/diy-grocery-bag-organizer.html

I started with just a normal cleaning wipes container that was empty and I had been saving. I hate throwing things out when I think I could reuse them for something! I grabbed some scrapbook paper and spray adhesive, painted the lid and here we have it:

I think its cute and a good place to keep those bags handy for when I need them.

Then we move onto my other small project, the baby food jar pin cushion! When I saw it at CraftPudding.com I had to try because it is just too cute! That tutorial can be found at http://www.craftpudding.com/2009/03/tutorial-baby-food-jar-pincushion.html.

I would have taken a picture of the fnished product but my camera batteries died and of course I have no batteries in the house...go figure.

I'm also working on a dress for myself and a sun dress for Snuggle Bug when I have the spare time in the evenings. Till I get pictures i'll post the last dress I made for Snuggle Bug....

Its not anything special but I like how it turned out and she looks so cute in it!

Thats it for now, more to come later!

    Those projects are really cute! I ran out of batteries the other day too, but it was for my mouse. I took them out of the remote LOL

    Have a great weekend!
