I think I might have to up my goal of one crafty thing a month.

I’ve kind of decided that new recipes count as crafts because following them can be very similar to directions for a new project. And in a situation like my recent cookie attempt, it can also mean going with your gut to combine instructions from more than one source.

Already this week I have combined two cookie recipes to make a new one. I don’t think I’m actually too fond of how it turned out, but it was fun to try!

That’s not the only “crafty” thing I’ve done though!

Monday night I plugged in the trusty glue gun and went about repairing the lining on my vintage suitcase.

Sadly I didn’t take pictures, though my brother has another that he’d like me to do. His will be more involved. The lining is ripped away on so much of his that we’ve decided that it’s a better idea to buy new fabric and completely re-do his. I will do my best to take pictures then!

Plus we get to go fabric shopping!

If I’ve already done the suitcase, which is definitely a crafty thing AND the new cookie recipe which is kind of crafty, plus I may be working on the glitter shoes again this week, I might just need to up my crafty goals!

I think instead of one project per month I will go for an average of two.

I know that doesn’t sound like much of a stretch, but school is going to kick my ass this semester and I intend to walk across the stage at graduation saying, “you should see the other guy!”
