Dear (Project) Diary

….and all you lovely people out there ๐Ÿ’•

Lots of creative bustling going on around here. ๐Ÿ˜Š Almost too much – if there is such a thing. I say ‘almost too much’ because ~ as you probably know ~ if your brain is too busy planning things you get nothing done. ๐Ÿ™ƒ
So I decided to make a list of the projects I have on my mind…and by sharing them with you, commit to them, and maybe inspire you to create your own day planner/wallhanging/art and art display. ๐Ÿค“

1๏ธโƒฃ First I wanna update you on the day planner…if you missed it- here’s the beginning
Since that post went public I’ve made 2 more calendar pages -the other 8 are going onto the to-do list ๐Ÿ˜‹

2๏ธโƒฃ Next on my list is a new ‘spring-y’ wallhanging ๐ŸŒบ
Remember theย felted one? This one is similar, except the background is not a piece of felted wool sweater. For this one I crocheted a rectangle with Bouclรฉ yarn.
If you would like to make one, it’s really quite simple…
1. Crochet 28 chain stitches (that number is really up to you, it depends on the desired size of your piece… maybe you want to make a blanket ๐Ÿ˜Š it just has to be an even number)
2. Place a double-crochet stitch in the 3rd chain from the hook. *Chain 2, and place a double-crochet stitch in the 2nd chain stitch. Repeat from * until your piece is the desired size. Then pick your ‘wool fluff’ and start decorating! Have Fun! ๐Ÿ˜€
Here’s my ‘wip’…

For a quick no-sew solution, simply clip some ‘Cafรฉ Rod’ clips to the top and thread on a rod or a skinny branch (my favorite ๐Ÿ˜Œ)

3๏ธโƒฃ Painting a frame is up next.
I’ve had this print in my store when it first opened, when it was ‘Beads for Belles’. Quite fitting, don’t you think? ๐Ÿ˜Š


Well, since then I changed the name to ‘Kristabella’, and also the decor and feel of the store. So, home with me it went. It really doesn’t go with anything here…what to do ๐Ÿค”
A new print and some chalk paint! Got both – next thing on the to-do list ๐Ÿ˜


I will show you the result soon!

4๏ธโƒฃ Then there is the stack of wool sweaters and pretty fabrics waiting to be turned into pretty pillows, arm warmers, and wall decor – next on the to-do list- man, that thing is growing fast ๐Ÿ˜† – so I can restock my somewhat depleted Etsy shop.


5๏ธโƒฃ Last, but not least…a finished project! My growing- quite literally ๐Ÿ˜‰- plant collection. As I mentioned before in Roommate: Mother Nature , I can finally buy and keep plants. Here’s the latest addition

It seems I can’t stop buying plants, cacti, succulents ๐Ÿ’•

Here I took some minis, and replanted them into these pretty pots

Behind the pink top you can see that I’m trying to propagate some succulents. I’ll keep you posted-if you never hear about it again, it didn’t work ๐Ÿ˜‚
I wanna say that’s it for now, but I’ll probably think of more projects you don’t wanna miss. ๐Ÿค— So please look for the next entry in my ‘Project Diary’!
Until then

~ Tina xoxo
