A centerpiece for dinner table using branches from our Christmas tree and flowers from a bouquet Chase got me
This is one of the two aprons I made that month for girlfriends. I have always loved this pattern that my mother and sister in law came up with for an apron. Isn't it fun? Ignore the fact that I had Chase model it for the picture.
Call me crazy, but I have found Pres. Uchtdorf’s words to be true when he stated at the last General Relief Society Meeting, “Creation brings deep satisfaction and fulfillment.” Thus, to push me to continue being creative I set a New Year’s resolution to create something new each month. So far these are the fruits of my labors:
I wish I would have taken a before picture, but below you will see what use to be a recipe box. It was a rusty red color and it had rooster designs on it. I really did not see myself ever using a rooster theme in my kitchen, so I got the idea of spray painting it black and then cover it with cute paper. I like how it turned out. We now use it to hold coupons. Yes, Chase and I are coupon users so the box is pretty handy.
Chase surprised himself and actually enjoyed it.
I must say though, I don't think I am the only one in my family taping into the crafty genes we were given. I would like to direct everyone's attention to my brother Brad's blog post that displays his crafting abilities in constructing Lincoln out of poultry. You'll be amazed. You reading this may have craftiness within you...you just have to find your niche!
