Sometimes I get lost in overcommitting myself to the point where crafting feels like a second job. I hate when it gets that way, because I truly love it and it is such an escape from a busy life. One of my goals this year was to start having fun with it again, play more, and use more stash. I always say the last one, but end up with more at the end of the year than I started with.
Today I went to craft with a friend. I needed to bring some things with me that wouldn't take a lot of time and would be easy to to pack. I brought a cartridge to do a cut rak which I completed. I have to say if you have a Cricut, the Artiste cartridge is a must have. That baby has a bit of everything on it.
I brought my spool to work on. I finished the majority of it, but I needed to remake the phinneal at home and do the final assembly and embellishing. It is about 75% done, so I made good progress. Pictures to come on this. I want to wait until it is done and my partner has it before posting.
Then the fun came. I wanted to bring another project, but wanted something that I could get done in a reasonable amount of time. I had a plaque in my stash for a while, it was sitting there in the alterables closet just waiting for me to do something with it. I grabbed my all time favorite stack G45 Steampunk Debutante. It was a hard call because Old Curriousity Shoppe is a really close second. That would look just as well. Too bad I don't have a second one of those or I must just might have had to make one. I really enjoyed this project.
