I have got so many projects on the go at the moment. Do you ever get like that? I’m sure I’m not the only one who tries to do too many things at once! Right now I’m trying to find the time to make a dress out of this gorgeous sequinned silk, I’m choosing colors for a new crochet project and I’m repainting this wardrobe. I’m going to paint the outside white and the inside blue to give it some personality. Cupboards can have personality, right? 

What projects do you have on the go at the moment?

Sometimes it can be hard to stay inspired. Other times my brain is overflowing with so many ideas it’s hard to keep track of them all! I have several notebooks that I use to sketch ideas and designs, but I’ve also created this little ideas box to fill with project ideas. I simply covered a small cardboard box with pretty paper and mod podge. I keep a stack of pieces of card on my desk that fit perfectly in the box. So if inspiration strikes I can quickly sketch my idea, add a swatch if necessary and pop in my ideas box. 

I also have a pin up board that I like to cover with images and other things that are inspiring me. It’s constantly changing and is usually a pretty eclectic mix of colours, fabrics and pictures. Keeping an inspiration board stimulates my creativity as well as making my work space a bit prettier! Here are a few snap shots of my inspiration board at the moment.

Check out these pretty bracelets I made! They’ve been on my list of things I want to make for a while. I followed this tutorial from Honestly…WTF. She recommends using waxed linen thread to make the bracelets, but unfortunately I couldn’t find any at my local craft supplies store so I used embroidery thread instead. The thread worked okay, but it was a bit thick to pass through the tiny beads. I’d like to try this project again once I’ve hunted down some waxed linen thread. This was a fun project and a great way to use up old buttons, of which I have a rather large collection!

Have you made anything fun recently? Have you blogged about it or created a tutorial? I’d love to hear about it, so tell me about it in the comments, below. Feel free to include a link to your project, too!
