Crafting 'cause I can't help myself

There is a store in a design studio here that sells all kinds of used and donated art supplies, ReUse Market (Boise Idaho) also sells design studio stuff, this includes "Tip" sheets which are samples of wall vinyl wall coverings in different textures.  Most of the sheets have one large piece and a dozen or so smaller pieces in different colors (mostly neutral) and I plan to save a large piece and a small piece to use for sculpy texturing but the rest I am using for Faux tiles on books and boxes for gifts
Here is the first one I made for a sick friend



Here is the Blog Post I did on it

Awwww, that little dragon is so adorable!

As for finding time to craft, I'll do that over housework any day!  I pick up when I start losing things or the dog's life is at risk due to an impeding stuff-alanche.  Plus, I craft when I watch TV, and as a baseball fan, there's a LOT of TV to watch...  Cheesy

I'll put my hand up as another one who puts housework to the back burner! Cheesy compound crafting with rather watch my baby play and we're lucky to have dishes clean that we need for that night's tea!

Looking for teal/turquoise/aqua, grey and white (or a combo) fabric for a quilt.

My son loves Peppa Pig's brother George and Raa Raa the noisy lion.

Yep, my room can be a mess, but as long as I can get to my sewing machine, you'll find me sewing. 

But this Thursday we have  a showing of our house {which isn't even listed}, so that means 3 days to get my space completely cleaned up.

trina--what a good use of the textured paper!  I have several rolls of the stuff from redecorating my previous home...it was great to cover up bumpy walls and paneling back then...I have tried to think of projects to do with it...thanks for sharing your idea...the textures really do pop with the paint you used!  and, adding additional embellishment is wonderful!

Ah!  And I was doing so good at keeping up!  Everything is awesome.  Love the yellow/gray on that blanket, ehinders, and that hat is pretty epic, Silvermoon.

Love all the creative messes we have here.  I'm guilty as charged, and happier for it.   Cheesy

The wrap is beautiful. It looks so delicate and soft.
And the crocodile stitch bag looks fun.

What a Cute Cheshire Cat Cushion! (Talk about alliteration.)
