I’m afraid this post may not be as exciting as the last one. At least, I’m not as excited about it as my last one. Sadly, my second day of crafting was not quite as productive as I would have hoped. Mainly because of the failed attempt at another pattern I created on my own. Anyone want to offer me reassurance on this one? I’m pretty sure I should never try to make it in a bright print again. It looks a bit like a pillow you would find on grandma’s couch:
I will try again though, I like the concept and I think it would be cute in a solid color. It was also my first time to make something with ruffles, which was surprisingly easier than I thought it was going to be.
I did finish up some earrings that are really simple gifts but I like them anyways. 🙂
And lastly, I am working on getting together some more generic gifts that I can make in mass quantity. Typically these are cookies, but I’ve decided I don’t think I want to make mass quantities of cookies this year. . . so I thought this could be fun and maybe easier!
I’m reusing mason jars from pasta sauce to fill with the dry ingredients for Chocolate White Chocolate Chip Cookies, Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies, and Brownies. . . I’ll attach a tag with what remaining wet ingredients need to be added (like, oil, butter or eggs) and how to cook. I think that’s a fun idea! I know I’d like something like that if I was the recipient.
