Crafting on

The act of creating, in one form or another, preserves my sanity amongst the chaos of life. This explains why I always have more than one project going at a time as well as why my housework tends to fall behind. I enjoy seeing what others are working on and keeping calm with, too. What are you creating? What is keeping you going? Snap a picture or two, post it on your blog, on Instagram #craftingon and/or Flickr and then share it with the rest of us by leaving your link below.

Ever since school ended I have barely had a moment to pick up my knitting thanks to the never ending painting projects. They had piled up through the school year (not having a garage or basement is partially to blame as well) and now I want to paint all the things. This is the kids' picnic table they helped me build a few years ago (You can see them building it here). After over a year in storage and lots of use, it is in need of a coat of paint (or sanding and stain but I just don't have the patience right now). I hope to have it finished by Fourth of July so we can use it in our festivities!

Has anyone had any luck purchasing children's picnic table sized umbrellas? I have done search after search online and I can't find any. The one that came with this picnic table broke due to the crazy Idaho winds and I haven't replaced it since.

What are you working on? Happy creating!

For his play kitchen

Those curls!!!

Baby F's play kitchen mat from Patchwork Style is done and currently in use. I am laughing at these pictures because, as you know, I prefer to have the children's play kitchen in my kitchen so they can pretend cook right along side of me. Obviously it is not in the kitchen above. The kitchen in this house is so incredibly dark that we have to turn lights on even on the brightest days of summer to be able to cook. Not the best place for taking pictures but hopefully some day soon we'll have our own house and kitchen again so we can paint, fix things up and make it all our own. *fingers crossed* In the meantime at least Baby F's mat brings a smile to me face and his, too!
