Currently Crafting: Felt Succulents & Glitter Hoarding

What’s everyone been crafting lately? I want to see!

Since Ruthie was born, it has been kind of hard to get back into the swing of things on many many levels, but especially creatively. I went for several solid months there doing absolutely nothing, getting caught up in exhaustion and yadda yadda. I couldn’t figure out why I felt so bleh until it dawned on me that I had no creative outlet. Man, I really didn’t realize how much art affected me until I wasn’t making any!

Anyway, last year I started playing around with watercolor and I really enjoy it. I’ve never taken a class and don’t get a ton of time to practice, but every once in a while during nap time… oh it’s on like Donkey Kong. It’s quite therapeutic, actually.

I used to do a lot of felt projects, as seen around here in the DIY section, so recently I busted out my stash and decided to try something new that I’ve been wanting to make for a few years…

felt succulents

I love how they turned out, but I’mma be real… they took for-freaking-ever. That was like 6 hours of hand-cut felt adult labor right there. A few hours in, I remembered why I had hidden the stash of felt in the garage.

this took forever

I saw these labels on Etsy and thought they were appropriate. Eh, who am I kidding, I’ll make more felt succulents at some point in the near future. I do love them.

The other thing I’ve been weird about lately is buying chunky glitter just because I can. I have absolutely no plans for this stuff, but you know how it is when you’re at the store and something just calls to you.

Morgan, buy me.

Morgan, hold me.

Morgan, glue me on stuff.

glitter bottles

I mean. Those bottles with the little corks! Would it be weird to display them in my house? Like on the shelf in the living room, next to photos of my children? I bought these at Target in a 4 pack and… oooh dear Lord, just checked Target.com they have more sets in other colors. Come to mama.

Okay this is getting weird, even for me. So yeah. What are you making lately? I really would love to know!

  4. I have every intention to put a ton of glitter in some cool bottles and make potion labels for them and put them on my mantle. So yes, yes it is acceptable to decorate with them.
