…I would just make things NON-STOP! See, I have a little bit of a problem when it comes to being crafty… I’m a bit of a jack of all trades, but definitely a master of NONE. There are so many things that I love doing or want to learn to do so I can love doing it, but there just isn’t enough time to do all of it!!! (Which is kind of sad because I am currently single with no boyfriend and no children and no pets and minimal responsibilities so if not now, when?!?!)
But anyway, enough about me not knowing where my time goes. Back to the MAKING! I have so many fun things in my Pinterest boards that I’m dying to make, and I hope to do someday! So many projects that I know how to do but could use more practice. Do I just pick ONE thing and get really good at it? Does that seem like less fun? Who knows. I’m just rambling now. So here are some of the fun projects that I wish I could do if I had all the time in the world!
– Embroidery –
Look at those flowers!! As someone who not dramatically at all says UGH more often than I should (ok maybe a little dramatic…) this would be a lovely project.
This bicycle pattern is precious and I can think of a few people who I could make it for.
LOOK AT THIS LLAMA I NEED TO MAKE THIS IMMEDIATELY!
– Baking –
I’ve yet to really master making the perfect pie crust, but this funfetti pie crust really makes me want to make pies all. the. time.
I’ve really started enjoying to make macarons but I need more practice to get my technique juuuuuuuuuuuust right. These s’mores ones would be a fun recipe to try while I’m working on it!
One of the big goals in my life is to make stunningly smooth cakes like this one and I just need to practice more. And have lots of occasions where sub-par cakes will be acceptable. Watch out, bible study ladies, you might be getting a lot of cake in your future!
– Lettering –
I have the sudden urge to write on all of my clutches and little purses now…
Bounce lettering is so fun and so cute and I need to do some more practice so I can use it to write ALL THE THINGS!
I have some Tombow pens and I LOVE them but (can you sense a theme here?) I need more practice! There’s so much you can do with them!
– Sewing –
I remember my mom making me and my sister so many customized scrunchies – I’d love to give it a try!
I’ve made a quilt before but I had my mom help SO MUCH during the process – I’d love to try again and make one for real this time.
I would love to beef up my sewing skills and make a cute skirt like this one!
– Crocheting –
I’d love to learn this bobble stitch for the edges of baby blankets I make!
I’m actually working on a blanket using this pattern RIGHT NOW!!! I just need to, you know, finish it.
These crochet cacti are so adorable – I do have some random green yarn I could use!
– General DIY –
I have no need to make my own giant rug, but also I REALLY want to make my own giant rug!
I’ve always wanted to make one of these string art crafts but I have not planned it out… so it might stay on the list for a while.
I’ve been learning more about Illustrator at work (thanks, Lynda.com!) and I am excited to start making projects of my own on my own personal time!
I think this post is just me daydreaming about all the fun things I want to make, but it’s also some motivation to see all the fun projects again and pick one and JUST GET STARTED!!! Which one do you think I should go with first? The ambitious side of me says make a rug, the practical side of me wants to start with the hand embroidery project, and the delicious side of me wants to make all the macarons!
