Crafting is my Therapy

I really don't know what I would if I didn't have a project or something to accomplish every week (besides the normal household chores which I end up doing over and over again:-). I got a headwarmer for Christmas and thought I could make up my own pattern to create some for friends. It wasn't too hard to do and I enjoyed seeing the outcome, especially the flowers -those I did follow patterns for. Where do I find the time to do this you ask? Well, each headwarmer took me about 3-4 days to finish. In reality if I was able to do is all at once would take me 2 hoursish, but I took my time and did it while I relaxed and settled down at night. Definitely my therapy!








The felt flower wreath was kinda two ideas into one. I saw the felt flowers in a magazine but they put it into garland, and I wanted something that I could put outside for a spring wreath. So here ya go! This also took several weeks to finish. Felt is very cheap and this was pretty simple! Just cut out circles and sew them together in the middle and waalahh! I would say this decoration cost me about 10 dollars or less. One of my favorites!
