Feeling Crafty?

I do not consider myself “crafty” or “creative”…much.  I leave those projects to dear friends…Audrey Hepburn pulled off perfectly for Halloween, I mean really?!

I consider myself a functional gal.  I realized this a few years ago when I tried my hand at interior design.  I worked as an apprentice with one of Charlotte’s most talented designers.  About 2 weeks into it, I realized I didn’t have a chance.  I thought you bought furniture from Rooms To Go and painted a few walls?  Complete opposite of her process — furniture shopping out of catalogs and then you have to buy the perfect fabric to cover it?  Good grief!

However…I am finding myself feeling a bit crafty here lately!  I even have a list of projects that I want to work on!  The problem is I have some inspiration but never time to go shopping for the supplies.  I tend to “borrow” ideas for anything I do — take for example, art class 1998.  I was a sophomore in high school and decided to take art as an elective.  Everything I ever worked on was borrowed from something out of a magazine, something in front of me, or … well that pretty much covers it.  I love Pinterest for my crafty inspirations and ideas.  I found a great article this morning in Southern Living magazine; the author took a $25 dirt ugly chair and turned it into this beautiful blue and white vision of amazing.  Im not sure that is an actual sentence, but that is where my mind went this morning when I saw it! 🙂

So…are you feeling crafty?  Please email or post comments below on your craft inspirations and ideas.  I would love to find inspiration in your ideas! 🙂
