Motivational Wednesday- Craftaholic

Are you someone that spends waaaayyyy more time at the craft store than with your family? Do you tell yourself that you need to buy more craft supplies to meet the minimum amount for free shipping? If you do you are a craftaholic!

Hi. I’m Ngoc.I'm a craftaholic on the road to recovery. Shabbymintchicparty.com

Honestly, I would be at the craft store every day if I wasn’t living in NYC where parking is horrendous. You don’t want to leave your parking spot cause you’ll be driving around 45 mins to get another one. But in my dream, I would like to build a little cottage at a craft store and live there!

Happy Wednesday. You may be a craftaholic, but I like you just the way you are!

Happy Saturday!

It’s a beautiful day here in lovely NYC. It’s in the 50’s. No bulky coat today. 

You know what else happened today? My 3 year-old son actually wanted to stay with his grandma overnight! OVERNIGHT! The kid who would cry every time I leave him at daycare. The one that would cry whenever I go to the bathroom! You know what else is amazing? He actually said to me “I stay with grandma. You go. I won’t cry! Good Bye!” So we left him…at Grandma! I hope you make it through the night, mom! Thank you for giving us a day off in 1.5 years!

Even before this happened, I had a plan on what my post would be about today: how to make mini buntings using free paint color samples from the paint or home improvement store. I wanted to layer them in back of my “Treat Yo Self” banner that I made using my Silhouette Cameo. Who knew that it would be so fitting for what happened today.

Materials:

How to make buntings from free paint swatch samples from your paint or home improvement stores.

Instructions:

  1. Cut a semi-circle out of your paint swatches. The Sprout swatch sample is a 5×5 square so you can get two semi-circles.How to make buntings from free paint swatch samples from your paint or home improvement stores.shabbymintchicparty.com
  2. Cut little strips at the bottom of the semi-circle to make little frills. How to make buntings from free paint swatch samples from your paint or home improvement stores.shabbymintchicparty.com
  3. Make two holes at the corners at the top of the semi-circles. How to make buntings from free paint swatch samples from your paint or home improvement stores.
  4. Thread yarn or twine through the semi-circle bunting.
  5. Do the same thing with the triangle bunting or any other shapes you want. Go crazy!

I made the “Treat Yo Self” using my lovely Silhouette Cameo. You can just cut out your letters by hand, punch holes. Pull string through twine.

I treated myself today by buying that ultra cute cactus (the only plant that will survive in my HOT apartment) and eating all of those mini donuts!

How are you treating yourself this weekend?

Motivational Wednesday

Motivational Wednesday

It’s the middle of the week!I bet you are sitting at your desk wishing Friday would come sooner. I work 24/7 being a stay at home mom, but I too dream of Fridays! Why? Because I know that my husband will be home for the weekend for family trips. Because it will be two days that my son will have a play buddy while I work on my shop and my blog. But alas, it’s only Wednesday. Boo.

As you can tell by the lack of posts, my blog is in its infancy. It’s still growing and I’m learning the ins and outs of blogging. On certain days I start to wonder if the decision to start a blog and running an Etsy shop is a wise one. But you never know what will be if you don’t try. So here is this Wednesday motivational quote that I made to remind myself and you to keep on trying!

Every Accomplishment Starts with the Decision to Try

Have a great rest of your week. Hang in there!
