Crafts & Crap

Emily Tucker2 Comments

Before marriage and baby I was a crafting queen and recently I decided I need to get back to crafting.. because I'm kind of a craft supply hoarder I needed some friends to join in depleting some of those supplies.

So I created Crafts & Crap! 

Simple request: Bring 2 sheets of felt, embroidery thread, a journal, some scissors and a Fall sweet or treat. 

I ended up making




, please excuse the blur I was busy detangling from marshmallow


Fall Leaf Garland


Friendship Bracelets


Thankfulness/Prayer Journals

and since this night was a night of Pinterest successes I'm linking up at Craft & Crap night attendee Jessica Johnson's monthly Pintertest Kitchen...

Yay, its almost September!! I love Fall and the Back to School time of year. It happens to be my fav-O-rite! 

Here are some fun links & things for September / Fall 

Get this Uber-cute coffee grinder computer background from WildOlive

A collective of Fall crafts. What could be better?!

Mmm extra delicious French onion soup, I must make this asap!

Please try these as soon as available. 

Trust me you won't regret it! 

Plus there is also a Caramel Apple one too... Dangerous.

Who wouldn't love this Sweater Dress for the tiny lady in your life 

Then you can snuggle her :)

A great reminder for everyday from the super Julie Carson!

I am constantly comparing and evaluating myself (my biggest fault)..

I really needed this

Loving this Floral Tank & Shawl Sweater combo

The floral puts a spin on Fall brights and who doesn't love a nubby knit!

I just signed up for this online sewing class- Home Ec and I am super excited! Its geared more toward beginners, which I am not but I'm definitely somewhere in between. Plus I need to learn to use my new beautiful sewing machine that I received for my birthday.

So check out the class if you're interested in taking it with me
