Musings of an American expat in Bulgaria (with detours in Utah and Alaska)

I’ve Caught the Bug


…the fall crafting bug!

There’s just something about this time of year that makes me want to put on my best Martha Stewart act, shut myself up in a warm house and create something pretty or useful!

(I can’t wait until I can have my own studio/crafting space one day.)

Heaven knows I have enough supplies on hand f0r projects to last throughout winter, but of course I have my eye on some things that require a trip to the craft store and/or some online shopping.

Thanks to Pinterest I am able to “bookmark” ideas that I want to revisit. That website has definitely rekindled my love affair with a glue gun and acrylic paints (among other things)!

A few ideas at the top of my list:

Earring display

Upcycled Tshirt Scarf

Ruffled Camera Strap

Zipper Bracelet

Recycled Light Bulb Vases (no link to source)

Ruffled Infinity Scarf

Giant Granny Square Blanket

And oh so many more!

I’m also a font addict these days! I love handwritten type fonts and can’t seem to stop downloading them! The memory on my laptop is starting to wish I would slow down. If you want to grab a bunch for yourself, check out a few of my favorite free-font websites: dafont and kevindandamanda. Amanda (of kevinandamanda) is one crafty lady and her blog is a must-see! The first three crafts above are actually hers!

I have had a lot of fun lately making new blog headers using lots of different fonts.

Lastly, I am itching to be elbow deep in floury dough and sweet batter. So many fun fall recipes out there.

Does autumn make you want to create? Have your eye on some fun projects?

Comment and let me know!

  1. Pumpkin carving! Oh my, yes! I’ll post pictures in a few days.

  2. We will definitely be doing some of these activities as they seem very inexpensive! But we will be eating a salad while crafting and not a smothered burrito.. These all look really fun.
