I’m back!

Uncategorized

Well, it has been an extended hiatus away from Fine Arts & Freckles but I have returned with excitement. I have been feeling a little overwhelmed in the ‘arts & crafts’ department for a little while now but I am determined to get back on track. I saw something on Instagram a while ago that really hit me:

…not sure how it exactly happened but so many ideas of projects I want to do just got all jumbled in my head and for some reason I just stopped doing anything!

So here are some of the things I am excited for:

1. Cooking – I am just at the tail’s end of a one week cleanse/eating challenge and while it has been difficult it has really started inspiring me in the kitchen to think about things I would like to make that I never have. Cold rolls are near the top of the list!

2. Sewing – A couple of months ago I decided to redeem some AirMiles points as I suspect I will never have enough for a flight (Aeroplan is another story) and purchased a sewing machine. Not going to start with anything too ambitious but I have been eyeing up our too long living room curtains for about a year and I have a couple of really great pillows that came with not-as-great covers that I would like to attempt to create new covers for.

3. Designing – I am not so sure where I want to start here but I love stationery and notebooks and cards so instead of talking about it so much I am going to carve out some creative time for myself and start designing. 

I also heard about a pottery class this spring that sounded pretty interesting. I think I might be too late for registration but I am still looking into it.

Alright. Time to create!
