Pretty Trims And A Big Mess....

Hey there girls..

The weekend is upon us and I am so glad.  It's going to be a gorgeous day here in the Minneapolis area with sunny skies and temps around 60 degrees.  Crazy for mid-March for sure, but I am definitely not going to complain about this kind of weather.

Something else that is gorgeous is my vintage sewing box drawer full of pretty trims that I've been collecting to use in my crafting projects.   Aren't they pretty?


While they may be, the reality of my crafting endeavors usually leaves my crafting table looking like this..


I should be embarrassed to show this picture, but I think all of you crafters out there probably live with the same kind of mess so I'm not going to feel guilty over it.  One has to make a mess to create something pretty.

Well, I'm off to enjoy the day, hopefully with a stop at Archiver's scrapbook store to check and see if they may have any pretty new scrapbooking papers just waiting for me to bring them home to add to my mess of crafting stuff.

See you soon!!

Yes, it does make a huge mess every time we make something pretty, doesn't it? At least it's a beautiful mess!

I love those messes, have everything turns, until I find decorative, do not feel bad, they are precious.
