How crafty are you? Do you make something new every week? Do you have anything on the go right now?

What about your LO's?

I am whatever the opposite of crafty is. I do not have a crafty bone in my body. Seriously, I fail at anything and everything requiring any creativity whatsoever. It's sad

The girls' "crafts" are usually cutting, drawing, gluing, painting and paper stuff. I have a box of random items and supplies that they have free reign of and they come up with the coolest ideas.

As for myself, I am kind of crafty but not very much so... there are tons of things I want to do, but don't have time. Browsing Etsy is torture because I want to do it all! My big thing is furniture, I love taking old furniture and refinishing/ fixing it to make it new again. I've done our dining set, a lamp, various small tables and jewelry boxes and I'm finishing up a china cabinet at the moment.

I also like sewing. I made Clarissa's entire nursery bedding set and curtains when she was a baby... Also just finished some 4th of July dresses for the girls made from my old blue jeans.

As for things I WANT to do... I want to crochet and knit, i used to know how to do that but haven't done it in years.... I want to get really good at sewing, and make quilts.... I want to take on a bunch more furniture projects and maybe sell them.

I am somewhat crafty. I love scrapbooking, so I get my creativity out there. I also tried to teach myself knitting earlier this year; I enjoyed it, just haven't picked it up for awhile since I've been doing other things.

Leah loves doing crafts, drawing, painting, gluing/cutting paper, etc.

I have a few projects I want to start. I actually made Eve two headbands last night

The white one was made from my maternity tshirt and the pink one from a (new) pair of stockings. I need to get a clip-on flower or something for them



And the following are the ones I want to start!





These are used formula tins, decorated





And a bedroom door plaque (my cousin's fiancee made this one)

I do a lot of different things, but most of the ones I've done lately have been for later homeschooling. I made a button snake, some alphabet tiles, and some colored wooden toys.

Here's the site that shows the wooden toys. I dyed mine using Food coloring and rubbing alcohol. I didn't want to spend the serious bucks on a non-toxic acrylic paint, so this was my "Em loves to put everything in her mouth, so I need it to be safe" solution. http://img3-ec.etsystatic.com/000/0/....245820119.jpg

I*TRY* to be, I just started making tutu's I want to try and make hairbows, since I buy a lot..
I tried to do Halloween crafts with Audrey, but she is still too young to really get it.
But I do plan on doing lots of crafts with her thanks to pinterest lol
I also want to do more things for the house.
I made a shadow box of Audrey's first year things and it turned out really cute.

I consider myself pretty crafty. It doesn't always turn out the best, but I really enjoy making things. I've made several things for Sophia's room already. My next project is making the crib skirt. I also want to make her a rag quilt.

I'm excited to do crafts with Sophia in the future!

I love to scrapbook and make bows for my girls. I also really like painting (just the walls). Oldest DD loves crafts, she loves anything you color, cut, glue, glitter etc. DS likes to color, baby is obviously to young.

I don't do a craft(y) thing every week. We give the kids art supplies/etc and let them play with that stuff for their crafts.

I sew, make hair bows, scrapbook, and a little bit of wood working. Nothing fancy. I've sewed the curtains for my house, made throw pillows for the kids, and made a couple hair barrettes for Squeakers.

I have a bunch of types of stuff I do. Not all at once, but here and there when I have time. Just a little bit of everything.I knit, sew, make soap, and lotion bars. I've started to look into ideas of things I want to do for my new house. Wish I had more time for this kind of stuff.

DD loves crafts more then anything probably. She paints, does beads, foam crafts, all of it. Once we get our craft room finished, I want to teach her to sew.

The kids and I LOVE crafts. I like crocheting, scrapbooking, painting, drawing, and lots of other things. The kids have their own little craft box that they can use anytime they want.

A few "projects" of mine

Haileys room name plaque/ hair bow holder



Hailey's Tooth Box


The boy's name plaques


Our sign that is now hanging over our bed


Some of the crocheting things I have done






That is just what I have on this computer, I have also made a menu board for the kitchen, a weekly planner board for the whole family and I am working on a birthday board for the family and friends so we never miss another birthday

I guess I can be crafty but I don't do things I would like. I have nothing going on right now at all.
