One step forward...two steps back

Brent took the kids to their Jr. MYF church group tonight, so I thought I'd get some crafting done.

I wanted to start some more projects to fill my Etsy store with.

I wasn't prepared for the frustration that just escalated as the night went on.

I'm planning on making more framed cork boards, some pillows...  (similar to these, as well as some other designs)...
Paper covered composition books with embellishments (

some distressed wooden candlesticks similar to these wooden items...

and maybe a fall wreath or I made last year.

I had plenty of ideas swirling around in my head, and yet, each thing I worked on, made me go one step forward and two steps back.

I fought with the sewing machine and we almost came to blows.

I struggled with getting the framed cork board just right and not throwing it out the window instead.

By the time everyone came home, I was severely frustrated.

I will try again maybe tomorrow night, and  hope it goes better.

By the weekend, I hope to have more things listed for you to see.

Thanks to all of you who have already purchased items from my Etsy store.  I appreciate it greatly!

  1. It is frustrating when we have in mind things to accomplish and it doesn't work out. sometimes...okay...oftentimes that in itself keeps me from every trying. i commend you for going for it!
