Keep Calm Craft On {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 and share it with the rest of us by leaving your link below.

Now that we are finished with the AHG leader gifts, it's on to birthday crafting for a sweet little girl who is turning 7 this weekend. She loves unicorns so I am knitting her up one in her favorite colors. The pattern is another one of Linda's amazing creations.

What are you working on? Happy creating!

This little light of mine...

making cards from old wet on wet watercolor paintings early evening sky my cutie prep prep candle making K's candle gift for Nana (very late) breeze C with her "mini me" smooshed face i got when i asked for a smile My children and I have been having fun with beeswax the past few weeks (hence the outdated Mother's Day candle photo. We sent that candle to Nana). Too bad computer screens aren't scratch and sniff, our home smells incredible - like honeycomb! I love it when we do crafts with beeswax. Oh what I wouldn't give to have honeybees of our own. I pray someday that will happen but for now I am content with purchasing beeswax from beekeepers who love their bees.

Tomorrow is the girls' last night of AHG until next September. It will be bittersweet as we have grown to love the incredible ladies that put all their heart and soul into this group. Thankfully most of them live walking distance from us and I am sure we will see them over the summer. Speaking of these inspiring women - I need to run and finish wrapping up their candles and bake our snack for the party (our thumbprint cookie recipe - yum!). I hope you all had a beautiful weekend!
