Happy Creating

I have been doing some creating lately...  I made a pillow from fabric I had been hoarding that matches my daughter's bedroom.

And I have been working on a brown bag swap from Snickerdoodle Dreams. I'm late on this one and it feels terrible, so it is tough to inspire myself. I've already made up my mind I'm sending extra goodies because of my tardiness.I sent one package and am finishing up a few smaller works to include in a second package. I will post photos after I have sent the second package, so as not to spoil the surprise :) I am fairly certain the first package has arrived, so here is a photo of the supplies she sent:

And the first item I made with those supplies and of course a few knit cloths to match (plus a few goodies thrown in for fun!)
I need to do another post detailing the supplies I sent to her and the AMAZING works that I received. I mean gorgeous!! She doesn't have a blog :( but her work is inspiring!

One of those items is a nifty cell phone charger/holder that I found on Pinterest. I modified it (of course, I can not follow a pattern to save my life!). Here is the other blogger's version. The blog is all in German, and yes I know I can use Google translator, but I just love looking at the photos!

And here is my version (which is super easy and fast, BTW):
I haven't been blogging a lot lately, nor really creating a lot because of extreme exhaustion. I was recently diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. I don't want this blog to become a medical diary or a whine fest, so I have restrained myself from posting about it. Did your mother teach you "if you don't have anything good to say, don't say anything at all"? So suffice to say, that I am under the care of a doctor and working on getting myself back! I hope to be doing more creating (and posting) soon. In the meantime, if I am unable to work on something, I seem to be able to browse Pinterest (follow me on Pinterest here) and see a lot of inspiring things! Email me from my Google profile (above) if you would like a Pinterest invite (it's quicker than requesting to be added).
Happy Creating!!

Rebecca :)
