It's been another crazy week, mostly because of long days at work. The strange part is that I've spent a lot of time working on jewelry pieces for work, so I HAVE been making things, unfortunately not anything I can share here! And with the odd combination of working a lot of hours, making a lot of projects, and writing a lot of instructions, all of it recreating other people's work, it doesn't feel as creative as it might have. So instead, I'm going to spend a little time getting inspiration from other people's projects, like the links below! I bet you can too.
The Artful Crafter
Make a pretty fall triple wreath wall hanging for your own wall or as a housewarming gift. With a little imagination, you can adapt the design for Christmas or just about any other occasion/season.
