Pin finds

As any good crafty social media person, I’m on Pinterest. (Are you?) Sometimes, I can get sucked in just poking around so I try to limit my time there unless I have nothing else to do (Riiight)

But! Here are some good ones I found recently:

Queen of Hearts Event Donation

Not too long ago, my friend Robin (who wrote this post) put out a call on facebook to see who wanted to go to a fun event hosted by Delaware County Down Syndrome Interest Group (DSIG) (a group she works with) that would benefit Downs Syndrome awareness. They’re having their 2nd Annual Queen of Hearts Event. While I couldn’t attend this time, I clicked over to see about making a donation. (I’m blessed, I give back when I can.)

I noticed that part of the night was a silent auction and figured that anything I sent to be auctioned off would likely net them more than I could donate in cash so I put on my thinking cap and came up with the idea of turning one of my recipe art pieces into a package deal.

This is what I came up with:

It’s colorful, busy, a little whimsical and a lot of fun. I used the colors in the fabric to color the recipe art which can be framed to be displayed in the winner’s kitchen! (It’s my go to chocolate cupcake recipe.)

AND it was fun to pick out fabric again and sit in my new sewing space to create. Bonus.

Working digitally.

I’ve been working on some neat-o digital crafting lately. I find it to be fun and relaxing. I don’t have to be good at sketching or have decent handwriting. I can let the computer do that work for me. My brain is free to do the rest.

Here are just a few examples.
