I am not what one would call naturally crafty. I love craft and making things with my hands and so I commit myself to the task and often the expense of making things.
My skills with scrapbooking have come along….I can have a vision and almost always make that vision come to life. My skills with invitations now that I have discovered pre cut card saves stress and foot stomping swear induced tantrums have progressed and I think I could safely say that I can kick most invitations ass.
I have tried my hand at cake making and whilst a super baker in taste in execution I sometimes fail…..big time…hilariously so and so it is no suprise that my first thing that I would like to learn how to do is to make a certain type of cake…..cupcake……Pug Cupcakes 🙂
A friend of mine has recently become engaged and does not want a floral bouquet on pricing brooch ones we discovered that they are like $650 rather steep….a quick evaluation of products bought from ebay and other requirements made me realise the same bouquet could be made for $100. I have done the youtube tutorial and I am bound to stuff up at least once or twice but if I succeed how gorgeous is it going to be…
I am obviously christmas obsessed as most people know and so the last 3 things I want to try to make are all christmas related. Firstly I saw these gorgeous little christmas tree decorations which I desperately want to make for this year.
I want to handmake all my wrapping paper this year and all the gift tags – Knowing I have a gajillion family members I thought I would limit this to being handmade for friends this year and see how I go.
Lastly this has been on my list for many years and this is the year I will achieve it! I want to make a gingerbread house 🙂 I just think they are fabulous and I want to make one.
Linking up with the beautiful Deb from Home Life Simplified for Listmania because it’s so much fun 🙂
