It has been another busy week on the home front. Every spare moment I’ve had I’ve been decluttering. I’ve reorganized my craft room so I finally have all my papers arranged, by color, in my new draws. I have a spot for my art supplies with pencils out at the ready so I can sketch at any time. I also have a place for other craft items, current projects, and inspiration & ideas. Everything has been labeled so that Graviee will know where things belong if she uses them….hopefully. I just have one container left to sort through, which is full of material and half finished sewing projects.
Here are my 3 Discoveries for this week…
1. Cluck Cluck Sew - I want to get back into sewing again soon. Having a quick look into my container, I came across some lovely fabric I’ve been holding onto for 13 years(!!) to make a quilt – it’s on my bucket list too. Anyhoo, I stumbled on this lovely blog by Allison which has some handy tips, tutorials, patterns and all things patchwork & quilting.
2. Sketchbookideas - Do you want to draw but don’t know what? Here is a list of 149 things to draw to get you started.
3. Evernote – I now have this app on my iPhone and Mac … and they sync up! I haven’t used it to its full potential yet but here is one way it has helped me. Graviee needs to clean her room. She gets overwhelmed and doesn’t know where to start so she asked me for a list. Evernote to the rescue! I’ve typed up a quick list for her (including breaks), with check boxes, printed it out and now she’s cleaning! I also have a “Honey Do List”, a “Wish List”, quick notes of websites or phone numbers I need to go back to, anything I want to jot down. Check out the intro video for more cool things it can do.
