Crafting For Ourselves

I was really struck by the amount of fun I saw in the Crafting For Ourselves group this week.  Zombies, clay acorns, travel desks, and more!  Fun!  I, (hanging my head in shame) haven't done much crafting for myself lately and really need to.  I recognize that I was happier when I was making the time, so it's my goal to have something to show off for next week's mosaic.  In the meantime, please enjoy these wonderful pieces.

1. clay acorns, 2. 228:365 stones and threads, 3. B's Travel Lap Desk, 4. back brown sweater, 5. Prehnite and Sterling Silver Pendant, 6. curve and wisp, 7. Upcycled Recycled Deconstructed T-shirt, 8. London themed cushions, 9. Xirafa de cartón

You also have to see this beautiful creation from Nicole of Brizel Handicrafts.  She shared this with me through the comments on last week's Crafting For Ourselves post and I'm so glad she did.  Pop over here and read the story behind it, it's a really meaningful project.

Do you have something you've made for you, for your home, for your family lately?  Show us!  Join us on Flickr, leave a comment, or email me.  I'd love to see.

Confession: my prehnite necklace went from being 'crafting for ourselves' to 'crafting for Odile' last week. I may be DQed as I had the best of intentions to keep it; however, Odile honored the flaw.

Off to check out the story from Nicole.
