I used to make stuff

I used to make things.
Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy watching a good game (or 5 a week!) of softball just as much as the next mom but my creativity is being stifled something awful. There just isn’t any time to get anything going.
Even work is busy.
I am the party planner at work and did have a good time planning May’s Agency Lunch and was able to squeeze in a teeny bit of crafting. We celebrated Quattro de Mayo out in the courtyard with burritos from a local Mexican take out joint. The boys wore sombreros and I made tissue paper flowers for the girls to wear. The tables were festive with colorful tablecloths and Guadalupe candles and the boss stuffed a piƱata with money. Good times, good times.
This is how I found my desk the next morning.
no crafts this week either

Speaking of things I used to make, I wanted to show you something I made before I met you. I found this pattern in an old Workbasket envelope from a lot I won on Ebay. I have been hanging clothes out lately and enjoying this bag so thought I would share it. Cute, eh?

Love the embroidery :) Carol, I hope you get to craft soon!! I've been traveling for work and haven't been crafting either :( That makes me cranky :P

*Sigh* I hope you get some crafting in soon. I'm starting to get that twitchy feeling myself. I'va had the chance (though few and far between) to craft, but nothing is turning out. I long for some leisurely crafting to do what I want.
