A New Craft - Finger Knitting

Welcome back, everyone!  As you may already know, I am still at home recovering from knee surgery.  With that comes the opportunity to sit - A LOT!!  While perusing Pinterest, I came across finger knitting.  I decided to give it a try and let me tell you, it is quick and easy.  The perfect craft for anyone who needs instant gratification or simply doesn't have a lot of patience!
Take a look at what I created:

The amazing part is I created this is under an hour!  I probably could have finished it sooner, but I was watching HGTV - nuff said!

Here is another one made with fluffier yarn:
This is just one long strand in a circle - like a strand of pearls - and that's how you wear it!
I'm thinking this could be my new "cottage industry".  What do you think?  Let me know if you want one!

Thanks for stopping by - I'm always happy to see you!

Baby, House, Job, but not stash! 

I used some scraps from a retired paper pack and a piece of white embossed cardstock. The stamped image is from, yes, you guessed it, a retired stamp set!
So, now it's your turn.  Let's see what "new" you can come up with.  Check out the My Time To Craft blog for some inspiration.  We can't wait to see your creation!

Wednesday Wisdom #35

I forgot to post last week's Wednesday Wisdom!  Apparantly being at home recovering from knee surgery is having it's effect on me!
Happily, I am recovering. I ended up with a nasty rash on my leg - an allergic reaction to the antiseptic they use during surgery.   I still can't do stairs, take a walk, crouch, or kneel, sooooo....I spend a lot of time sitting - which results in a sore butt!  Sorry if that's TMI!  Enogh about is this week's wisdom:

Let's hear it for back-up plans!
Have a great week, everyone.

Buttons and Ribbons

Specifically, at least 3 buttons and 1 ribbon - you've got this one!
Fortunately, I got this one done before my knee surgery.  Those pain pills are knocking me out - I've been doing nothing but sleeping and going to physical therapy.  I'm hoping to be done with them soon.
Make sure to stop over at My Time To Craft to see what the rest of the team created.

Here's hoping I can stay awake long enough to get back in my craft room this week!

Wednesday Wisdom #34

Except now, I'm setting it for pain pills!  The surgery went well and I am working hard at physical therapy.  Can't wait to be done with the pills - hate that tired/loopy feeling!
