I love this slogan! It describes me to a tea. (I found it on http://landeeseelandeedo.blogspot.com/ .) I love to check out blogs on most everything... crafts, baking, decorating, kids stuff. I have been bookmarking blogs and ideas I want to make or do and just realized today I have maxed out my bookmark capacity. I didn't even know that was possible.
I was recently inspired to start posting the projects I am working on. I was having a delicious treat with some friends (while all of our kids were at vacation bible school) and was talking about some crafts that I had made for Father's Day gifts. My friends sounded interested and excited to start crafting. I began thinking about the blog I had started months ago to benefit from Shutterfly's deal of 50 free photo cards and decided to become a blogger.
My husband calls me a blog stalker and I admit, I am addicted to blogs. That is where my blog name came from: Confessions of a Blog Stalker. (http://www.thediaryofdaveswife.com/ was already taken.) People think I am creative, but really I just find a project that someone else has posted and make it. I hope you find my posts interesting and that they get your own craft juices flowing.
My most recent project I found on http://www.peanuttoprincess.com/2011/04/shabby-giraffe-applique-tutorial.html.
I saw it months ago and bookmarked it to make someday. My nieces first birthday was last week and thought this would be a great addition to her present. I love to make things for people. It makes a gift more personal and thoughtful. I thought the giraffe might be a bit large for her shirt so I opted for a butterfly. I followed the tutorial listed and didn't have any problems. I loved my sister's response...impressive. Who doesn't like to impress?
