I finally found a way to set up a dedicated craft space for myself a couple of months ago. It has a nice, big desk where I can spread out and use my Cricut, Easypress and my laptop without having to take over the dining room table!
I’ve been so excited, because using my Circuit is much easier when I’m not lugging supplies from room to room (or trying to figure out where my family is going to eat when a project runs longer than expected).
Thanks to my new space I went crazy over the holidays and made personalized gifts for just about everyone, which was so much fun. I used new materials an techniques and just had so much fun creating new designs.
Now that the holidays are over I’ve been excited to focus all of my crafting energy on making things for myself! I started with dish towels because I love having a stash of decorative towels with fun sayings to display in my kitchen.
I decided on this “Alexa, Feed The Kids.” design because – let’s be honest – we all wish Alexa would pull her weight a little more. She’s great a turning off lights and controlling the temperature in our house, but my toddler’s first word was “Alexa”, so she’s part of the family now and serving up a hot meal now and then would be a great thank you for that bit of prime real estate she occupies on my kitchen counter.
I also love making these towels and bringing them, along with a bottle of wine, as a hostess gift when we’re visiting friends and neighbors. it’s always a huge hit – I mean, every parent can relate this now and then, right?
Not into dish towels? This would be so cute on potholders, oven mitts, trivets, coasters, coffee mugs and canvas! Choose a vinyl color that compliments your kitchen or stick with black for a minimalist vibe.
