Please tell me its just pregnancy brain…

It’s no secret to you guys that I love to craft.  I like finding or coming up with the idea.  I like buying the stuff.  I like making the stuff.  And I usually like giving the stuff away. 

But lately I’ve been in a crafting funk.  I’ve made a few things.  I’ve started actually making some things. I came up with a long time ago(like the personalized clock).  I’ve even done a few “new” things.  But the old ideas are boring me, and I can’t seem to come up with anything new to do.

Point being…I’m kind of bummed about the brain blitz I have going on.  I thought going to the arts and crafts show would help.  But…the kids weren’t conducive to good looking and it was WAY TOO crowded to really enjoy myself.

So….I’m asking for your help, my lovely loyal readers.  What are some of your favorite crafts-that you’ve made or received.  Do you have any ideas that you’ve thought of, but don’t want to try?  I’ll be willing to try it for you!  🙂  Please leave me some ideas in the comments section or send me a quick e-mail.  I’ll love you forever if you get me outta this funk!

    I’m sure you’ve done these already, but are you familiar with placemat bags?? Buy some placemats on sale, fold in half (inside out) and sew the sides together. Fold each of the bottom corners to make a flat triangle, and sew them. Turn the “bag” inside out, sew ribbon on top, and you have a cute bag. With Christmas coming up, you could have some really fun things to give gifts in 🙂
    Also, if I mail you my recent zoo pictures, will you make them into a cute educational book for my child?? Just kidding 🙂

    Make Christmas placemats using old Christmas card fronts(I have plenty if you don’t save yours) and pasting onto contact paper and laminating. You could of course put in a pretty picture of your kids in the center, maybe on Santa’s knee or in front of a Christmas tree.
