Please please please post the finished product! I have no art skills that involve paint or ink or anything like that and am always so envious of those who do!
This is on my list of crafty things to do! Where do you find your patterns? I love the colors in that one.
These are amazing! How will you anchor them all into a bouquet? I would love to see it!
I love the adult coloring books, they really help me when I’m super down because they make me feel like I’m accomplishing something. Where did you find all your sayings and stuff for your board?

Pinterest mostly. Then I would go to Target and print them up like photos through their little kiosk.
I also spent an inordinate amount of time at the craft store in the scrapbooking aisles. Stickers, glittery letters, patterned paper to print on.
When I was hospitalized those coloring books were a godsend; I was too hopped up on morphine to do crosswords. They kept me entertained without demanding complete focus. Hodie and I like to buy the big posters and color them together and listen to 70’s stoner rock. Quality bonding time.

Wow, what talented ladies! Very lovely!
My craft that I’ve since given up was making dreaded wigs:

Bees, there is some amazing talent here!! ๐ ๐ I can’t quilt, knit or crotchet. I have dabbled in cross stitch before, and when we settle into our new home I will *hopefully* finish the beginners babushka doll pattern I started two years ago haha!
Anyway, I am currently dabbling in flower arranging (not wedding related) and point perspectives.

Love seeing all these crafty bits! Makes me want to try out something different! So jealous of people who can paint or draw though!
not decided yet whether I will stick them into some polystyrene or just hold all the stems together and wrap up. Bought some floral foam but since have read it is very toxic and shouldn’t be touched by hands so feel that’s out the window. They all have floral wire as stems so quite movable ๐ doing charity shops at the minute to find sparkly beads/earrings etc to have in the middle or the flowers ๐

Those are awesome! I’ve always wanted to try wearing a wig but I have enough hair for 4 people and I would have no idea how to stuff it all under there ๐คฃ Also… I find I make a picture in my head of what I think a Bee looks like and you look nothing like I had imagined! Not in a bad way! You were blond and older in my imagination. I have no idea why lol.
Wow! Someday I am going to practice sketching enough to at least not look like a kid drew it. Do you use a ruler to make everything so straight? I love how they draw you in.

I enjoy sewing.. these are my two latest projects. My Sarah Sanderson Halloween costume and Death Star baby blanket for my niece!

I do a little bit of everything! Lately it’s been mostly working with beads and cut outs, because that doesn’t need a lot of room or prep time. I’ve also finally figured out how to quilt without special equipment, but I’m still on my first quilt so nothing to show there.
And I have no idea why everything is uploading sideways… sorry!

I have no artistic ability (I cook, but that’s about it) but I had to stop by here and say how cool this thread was. Its easy to see someone for more than a username and occasional post but I love the extra layer this adds to how you see a person online. There is so much talent here!!!
Holy smokes, I’m obsessing over that blanket!!!

Etsy! It’s a great source for patterns, particularly if you’re into modern cross stitch. There’s a r/crossstitch reddit sub as well that is full of gen-x/millennial stitchers which is great for pattern inspo too (:

those would make awesome baby/child’s room decorations if you connected them loosely with felt, as wall hangings, layer them up etc etc. So cute!
