First Post and Stenciled Tees

I've decided to start a craft blog which is exactly where you're at. I thought it would give me some incentive for actually completing some of the many projects I start. My husband refers to our spare room as "the place where crafts go to die." Pretty accurate at the moment, but I'm gonna change all that.

So far I've dabbled in beading, paper mache, knitting (pathetically), and other random projects. I'd like to play around more with these kinds of crafts as well as learn to sew (really really badly), cross stitch (subversively), and make interesting artwork. This is gonna record my efforts - bad and good.

First to start out on a positive note, I think I'll share something that turned out well.

These freezer paper stencils are so much fun to make! And so easy.

This one says, "Chuck Norris doesn't sleep. He waits."

And this one is the prettiest pair of jackelopes I've ever seen:

Tutorial and a mad amount of stencils can be found here:

NICE stenciling!

And thank you for reminding me about the Chuck Norris sayings site. I love those sayings.

Thanks, too, for the linkage!
