Repurposing and DIYs

I am so excited! For Christmas I was given some of the greatest gifts from my family!

I received, first off, a HUGE amount of fabric, thread, needles and things of that sort from my mother-in-law. I will never need to buy needles or thread, at least for a really long time. My father-in-law bought me a beautiful case for my sewing supplies. It is white with green leaves printed all over it. ♥ Yay! He also gave me some starter supplies (SO needed) like scissors, pins, etc. My sweet husband bought me some yarn, a nice new sets of crochet hooks and a Crochet Bible. (I kept telling people that I really wanted to learn how to crochet. I know right?! How could I have not learned yet?!) My "other mother" and good friend, Katherine Oram, gave me one of her old Singer sewing machines, along with some more thread, scissors, some frames (so I can be crafty) and a bread machine! Finally, my parents bought me another battery for my camera and an AMAZING flash that I desperately needed to own. Now my pictures, no matter the location or time of day, can be beautiful! Yay!

I cannot express to you all how excited I am! I have been so blessed with the tools I need to do what I really want to do, repurpose what I have, make what I want (at an affordable rate), and learn it well enough so that I can teach my own children one day (and others) how to do it, too!

Anywhoozlebees... Yes, "any-whoozle-bees," be on the lookout for new posts! Since I have so many more craft supplies and new tools for my photography, there will be many more posts! DIYs, Sewing, Crocheting, and Photography! Oh my! ♥

Thank you so much for your support! You have no idea what your encouragement and support have done for me! I love you all! Thank you!

  1. Repurposing. What a neat idea. Is that like when I use old socks to carry my lunch to work? ;)

  2. Seriously. If you could discover a handy repurpose for all of the widow socks in the world you could be rich! FYI--A widow sock is one whose mate has either disappeared or been eaten by the washer, dryer, or clothes hamper.

  3. Haha, yea. I will have to come up with a use for widowed socks. I am pretty sure I could come up with a few widowed socks DIYs. Seriously. :) I will have to search for some ideas, and when I find them I will post a blog just for you! :)


Tell me your opinions! Do you have any advice for me? I'd love to hear from you!
