The weekend is upon us.  What crafty ideas do you have planned?  Are you going to thread that needle and MAKE something?  I hope so!

Sometimes it’s the time factor that makes the difference between starting a project and throwing up our hands in despair.  Try to carve out a little creative time for yourself this weekend.  Get up a little bit earlier, stay up a bit later.  Make yourself a good cup of tea or coffee.  Take a deep breath.  And CRAFT.  It will be worth it.  I promise!

Here are some ideas to help you get started:

Make a craft apron:

@Karen – It’s always a pleasure to inspire. Thank you! Sometimes it takes just a little nudge…and we’re ready for something new. Melt and pour soap-making is fun. Enjoy!
