Homemaker's Journal, on crafting

The Homekeeper's Journal, sponsored by the Christian Homekeepers Network, is a weekly "journal" in which to share thoughts etc...

This week’s Homekeeper’s Journal is all about crafting and creating ……….

In My Kitchen this week ……
Some of the basics but I always try to implement some new recipes each week. This week is a "different" Crab cakes recipe and a carmelized shallot and sage souffle. I also made Jam-Jam muffins, which suprised me by looking like a creature from a children's movie (you can read the post here).

When I think about Crafting/Sewing/Making Things, I want to …
do it all. Yeah, that's pretty much. I am selfish and greedy in this sense. :)

My favorite creative outlet it ……..
sewing, decorating, repurposing, organizing. I feel great when things are put away and feel I can "think" more.

A Craft that I’d like to learn is ….
knitting. I bought a book (well a couple of books, I grew ambitious, y'all.)

One Craft that I can do but don’t do much is ….
Sewing---like with everything, need more time....or a Superwoman pill :)

An unusual Craft that I can do or would like to do is ….
Wax Painting...

Another Craft that I secretly long to do but don’t right now is ….

The Craft/Creative Work that I have no desire whatsoever to do ……

  1. Hi Ellen-

    Thanks for leaving the nice comments on my blog about my interview with Donna and the urn table. When I was seeing what items would work for the table and used the silver tray, I nixed it and the ashtray vision came into my mind. I wasn't even going to post it, but then thought I should to show the process of shopping your home.
    I , too have so many creative things I want to do and learn - photography a big one, followed by computer design. So much to learn, so little time. I just keep chipping away so that each day i learn a tiny bit more - it will all add up to total knowledge some day.
    I hope you have an enjoyable day.
    My best- Diane
