make do make do

i REALLY need to CRAFT! I need to get back on the wagon of religiously making things like I used to. I want to be creative and rarin to go! Sometimes I feel like all I do anymore is take pictures which is all well and good, but I want to actually MAKE things and have a product at the end. Do you know how many art journal pages I've made since school started?

...A BIG FAT NONE.

that's embarrassing. I have a page in my drawing book where I've drawn out crafty goals and I would really LOVE if I could complete some of these soon!

to make:
1. new camera strap cover
2. DIY snow globe
3. wooden pendant 1/2 way done!
4. bunting
5. crocheted headbands/cuffs

6. a big crafty headband with a headpiece of some kind
7. Elsie's Snow Day hat tutorial

8. work on my granny square blanket
9. do my sock monkey/elephant kit
10. hat for my bear
11. redecorate the dorm a little?


that's lots of stuff. and I feel like once school starts on Monday I'm going to have NO TIME to do them. :(
C'est la vie. How do you all make time for crafting so much? I feel like all I do is class, work, homework, exercise, and eat meals. No time for anything else. :( Maybe that will be better this semester.

So what are you all working on right now? Send me some inspiration and motivation!

I feel ya on the school/crafty time. I also work every day of the weekend. :( Mostly, I get my HW done and studying done in the library. That way I'm completely focused and get stuff done WAY faster! Then I go home and I have way more time to get crafty! Good luck this semester! :)

Hey Elaine! This is Cat from the chat last night! I have the same feeling of never having enough time to craft. I don't work but staying home with a toddler who wants to help with everything isn't very helpful haha! I'm adding your blog to my reading list :) Feel free to check me out

xo,
Cat
