Feeling Crafty

Thanks to a very generous gift certificate from my folks, I was able to stock up on some fresh, pretty craft supplies this week. Some items are for journaling and some are for calendar crafts, and a few things are for the January Learning Room ...


Here we have tiny wooden clothespins, crocheted flowers, crochet ribbon trim, glassine envelopes, lace doily shelf edging, decorative Victorian notes and plain ecru paper tags.


And I am so in love with this scrapbooking paper ~ I plan to use if for my next journal cover. (I'll be starting a fresh journal on New Year's Day.)


New Year decorations for the Learning Room ~ snowflake craft punch, brightly colored construction paper and tissue paper, foam star shapes and sparkly star stickers, a foil star garland and some primary-hued yarn ...


Materials for a new calendar center ...


These two *gorgeous* magazines were actually Christmas gifts from my mum and dad ~ further inspiring the craftiness!

Before I go, I want to say thank you for all your kind comments this week, and as for the questions (re ~ recipes and such) I will work on a "catch up" post for the weekend, answering questions and sharing links, recipes, etc.

I hope you are all having a nice week ~ see you again very soon! :)
