With school, work, a trip to Alaska, five needy animals, a house, and well...life, May didn't really exist for me in craft or blog land, June's not looking good either, and July - that's a total crap shoot!
Summer school is pretty intense this time around with about 6 papers due a week (in fact I have 26 pages due for one paper alone on Sunday!). That doesn't mean I haven't been making a few crafty things when I could squeeze a few moments in (read: when Chris isn't around to tell me to WRITE or STUDY - what would I do without him?!) and blogging hasn't really even been an option.
But, this week, even though I have those 26 pages, I HAD to break the blogging hiatus because I am in love with the pleated clutch I made from a tutorial from Noodlehead for a good friend of mine who is deserving of beautiful things.
I took it for a trial spin this morning when I went to breakfast with friends and then to a you-pick orchard (hey, even with this much going on we need good food around, right?) and even though my friends are both guys, even they thought it was adorable :)
As with all projects on the first go-round there are some minor quirks that I'll work on for subsequent pleated clutches but, I'm seriously a fan. And, I really like the little credit card pouches inside.
And this material that Chris and I bought yesterday...brilliant!
Keep your eyes peeled (maybe in July!!) for a back-log of fun crafts...miss you guys!
