Expanding Horizons

What one new thing (or two) are you excited to learn or explore in 2019? πŸ™‚ (We gotta keep levelling up, right?)

Howdy amazing folks! We are moving into the final month of the current year which … likely means that you’re giving a think about the year ahead, right? πŸ˜‰ And if you haven’t yet then I would love it if you used this prompt to do so πŸ˜€

So that up there is Question #4. Give it some thought and share your answer/s below so we can inspire each other with awesome ideas & positive intentions πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡ And don’t worry if it’s not final yet, we’re all entitled to brainstorm! πŸ˜€

~ My answers:

  1. Β crochet earrings
  2. crochet with beads
  3. creating “floor doilies” with t-shirt yarn
  4. crocheting owls
  5. macrame
  6. sewing – if my 1 year old will allow it

Okay that’s 6 instead of just one πŸ˜‚ but, except for #6, they’re all related so I think I can squeeze them all in in 2019.

What are your answers? πŸ˜€

Beads, Buttons, Ribbons, Oh my!

I found some fun stuff on a recent trip to Malaysia πŸ™‚ Incidentally, I didn’t go treasure hunting for souvenir items as any normal, sane tourist would do.Β  I rummaged amongst the aisles of a DIY shop instead and found these ~

A handheld sewing machine!

Now why would I buy this when sewing is a siren call that I am absolutely deaf to … ? Or, am I? πŸ˜› I saw it way down on the bottom-est rack and it was quite cheap so I put it in my basket.

I don’t know how to use it. There’s no manual, or spare parts, we just tested if it would come alive with batteries πŸ™„ Maybe its purpose is to inspire me to sew or maybe it will become a craftsy paperweight.Β  It looks promising, let’s leave it at that for now πŸ˜€

A paint by numbers kit!

I was inspired by my daughter’s and when I saw this at a low price I didn’t hesitate ❀

And here are some lovely ribbons, beads and buttons ❀

IDK, again, I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with them but I’m thinking I could use these for my fashion doll clothes.

As well, I was inspired by a lady somewhere here on WP who collects buttons.Β  So I’m starting my own collection πŸ™‚ ❀
