And the Craftiness begins!

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!”

I would like a snack.

I’m still really liking all this dance stuff. Can’t wait to really learn more and feel comfortable with most leads. Some shoes that I’ve had for a while are now suddenly giving me a blister, so I was a little off tonight, but I still had fun. Plus, my security blanket was at home getting some much needed rest. But I still went for it!

I need to figure out a way to get my brother to one of the dance parties at Joanne’s. If he really got to get into a couple songs he would be totally addicted, and then I would have someone else to dance with! Seriously, the brother and I would be an awesome dance couple. It’s not something that I can just describe though, I need to get him out there so we can show people!

Did I mention that I made some awesome Cake Cones on Saturday? I will be making more soon. Maybe even making them prettier!
