Crafts 'n things

You probably don't know this, but I received a sewing machine for Christmas. You see, I love all things "crafty." Right now, my obsession is felt food. I am working on a teapot and cups, as well as a cake stand and cake slices. I wanted to be finished in time for Evie's birthday, but better late than never, right?

There's something about cold weather that brings out the Martha in me. I guess we're all hibernating indoors and we have more time for being creative. Plus, Rachel loves crafts, too. We could spend hours (um, actually we do spend hours) just talking about projects!

But sometimes I need a little help and inspiration. That's why I was excited to hear about Crafts 'n things free monthly newsletter. Not only does it give great ideas for home decor, gift giving, and gardening, but each subscriber has the opportunity to sign up for "Win It!" for a chance to win fantastic craft-related prizes. You can sign up for the newsletter here.

So what about you? What kind of crafts do you enjoy?

Do you use a pattern for your felt food? I would *love* to learn how to make it!
These days, my "craftiness" is limited to the painting, gluing, and project making that I do with my younger kiddos and the 2 little ones I watch during the day! Some day I'll have more time....

I went through a purse phase that is fairly latent right now, but I've been doing jewelry a bit lately.

I recently found a few things on Etsy that I LOVED, and low and behold, they were felt/fabric foods! My daughter loves doing imaginative play with food. I hope you'll posts pics of your creations!

I enjoy living close to someone who can make felt food, teacups, ect.

Those are my kinds of crafts.

The one thing I like, (and don't get to do) is scrapbook. LOVE IT.

Sadly, I have no sewing skillz.
