Adventures of an empty nester mom

Cold days yield inspiring crafts!

I’ve said it before: cold weather is not my favorite!! What I do love is a good craft! What’s better than seeing a picture of something, then making it yourself? Not much!

Fast forward to today: I finished my recent cold day project. I saw the picture on an ad and again on Pinterest, so I created it myself. Project: $2.50 thrift store jeans + nine (9) $1.00/each bottles of puffy paint from the Dollar Tree + some painting time = my new hip jeans! NOTE: they are a newly-achieved size 6 which is also inspiring to me.

I used to sew, bead, paint, emboss and embroider, in my former life as a SoCal mom. Some FUN things never leave us. My friend Kelly called me “Holly Hobby” once.

What will today bring? What inspires you?

I adore my family and friends, meeting new people, travel, food (Gluten-Free please), and belly-laughing. My mantra is HAVE FUN EVERY DAY. I've lived in five US states and two foreign countries. I am grateful, blessed and adventurous. I like to do NDBs (never done before.) I enjoy sharing my creative Empty Nester life.
