inspiredPosted: May 18, 2009
this morning my friend beth and i attended our favorite craft fair at the store road less traveled in Santa Ana. we had a great time looking at all the different booths and catching up. When Harvey and i got home i felt inspired to work on some projects. the first was just a matter of completing a blanket that ran out of bobbin thread half around the edge stitch, so all i needed to do was finish two sides. so i did and now its done!
then i worked on my project of the day which was a gift for tyler that i have been planning in my head for a few days. its a little journal that he can keep in his pocket to write down his To Dos and little notes and activities so that he won’t forget. i used scraps of things around the house, a piece of cardboard off a box, scratch paper, and a scrap of fabric.
first i cut my paper and cardboard to the size i wanted and then stitched the two together down the center
then i glued the fabric onto the outside of the book (i coulda stitched it but i was consirned that my stitching wouldn’t hold up as well cause i had to manually do it on the sewing machine cause i was afraid of the needle snapping)
then i went through and on the top of each page i wrote a bible verse for inspiration, some were parent related some where husband related some were just general inspiration. Harvey even got in on the mix of inspiring his daddy…
and that was it our little project of the day…..
