It’s been a while since I last blogged. Wow! More than a month. I’ve been really busy. I’m working on my “summertime aloha” wreath, but I’m not really liking how it’s turning out, so I might have to scrap it, reuse the main part for something else, and start over with a new idea I’m having…. We’ll see. I’ll be sure to post up pictures as soon as I am done. The fam & I were at Barnes & Nobel the other day (romantically wasting the Saturday afternoon away), looking at books. It’s one of our favorite things to do with the kids, and I ran across a great crafty idea, sandwich wraps!

Well… the book said to use Polyurethane Laminated (PUL) fabric, and to my dismay (trust me I LOOKED all Sunday, at the stores & online!) could not find any. Online search had all “sold out”! This material is in very high demand for cloth diaper users. If we had another baby, I would seriously consider the cloth diaper thing BTW.
Anyways, as I searched and searched, I ran across other blogs that used Heat’N Bond Iron On flexible vinyl. So I’m going to get me some of that stuff the next time I go to the Local Craft Store.
Wish me luck. If it turns out well, it’s another project to add to my inventory. Thinking Sets of 4 would be nice.
At this point, I’m really considering doing a giveaway. I just don’t know what yet. I’d really like to get more crafters to follow me… my blog & my craft twitter… I plan on crafty blogging a lot more especially with this long list of TO DO’s I’ve got going.
Summer is right around the corner, but you can’t tell with the horrible rain and cold weather we’ve been having.
COME ON CALI WEATHER!!! LET’S STEP IT UP ALREADY!
Sam’s 13th birthday is coming up. I need to talk to Linda about making some sushi cupcakes… I think Sam will love them. http://blog.craftzine.com/archive/2010/04/sushi_cupcakes.html
And, once again, as I blog, many things are popping into my head, and many other unfinished projects as well. Back to my art book & planner. There is never enough time in the day for all the things I want to do… There never is.
