Last week I ordered a case of Topps 3 inch x 5 inch scratch pads. They got here yesterday, and tonight I cut out scrapbook paper to make covers for them. Then I added a little pretty something. And, Viola! I have gifts for the vendors at the Scratch Made Market!
Made 25 in two hours! Fun!

2. I measured out my desired size, in this case 12"x6", made a pattern out of cardstock, and got to work pinning and cutting.

Because another Portland craft show had a name similar to ours, we renamed ours "Scratch Made Market".
The Scratch Made Market is Saturday, October 17, 2015 10am - 4pm at the Beaverton Merchant Hall, 12775 SW Beaverdam Rd, Beaverton, OR 97005.
Scratch Made Market is brought to you by Jenn Barker of Curiosities Vintage and Betsy Miller of Orange Cat Craft.
If you would like to participate as a vendor, please visit the the application HERE, print and fill out the application, and mail it to us at the address listed on the application.

|My End Result|
Monday, April 20, 2015
I had big plans to spend the day in the craft room yesterday, but because it was a magnificent day outside I opted instead to work in the yard a wee bit. Watched a neighbor's bees enjoy some buds on my shrubs, checked out my radish sprouts, tamed my raspberries with two pretty red trellis', then sat on my stoop to watch my columbine grow.

I did some post-holidays clean up today. I hung the Edison Lights that were originally meant for my Glamping kit. We found out at Easter how fragile they are, so I decided to hang them in a permanent home.
It looks fun!

|Maybe it's because I have animals on me.....|Write a blog post to rid myself of the guilt I have for not writing a blog post.Done! Shower - This is a great achievement on a day off.Done! Get Dressed - Another great achievement.Done! Eat something besides Baby Bel cheese and Oyster Crackers. Done! Feed my Daughter something besides Baby Bel cheese and Oyster Crackers. .Done!
- Buy some vegetables. I took my bra off and had a glass of wine. No driving for me.
- Eat some vegetables. uh.....
- Make a friend a card.
- Do a long overdue project that I promised someone a month ago that is giving me ridiculously awful pangs of guilt when all I have to do is spend a few hours learning my new serger - something that not only I REALLY want to do but is also necessary - and that one thing will put me that much closer to finishing the project and make someone happy and why the hell am I procrastinating doing something creative anyway?
- Do 20 minutes of Yoga.
- Go for a 30 minute walk.
Eat frozen ravioli for dinner because I want to spend a day doing something more meaningful that making dinner - like watching Adam Sandler and Andy Samberg shorts.Done!
- Fold the Laundry. Opted to organize my closet.
- Get my daughter a new phone because 35 days after having her brand new Motorola Mini she dropped it in the toilet. The Daughter wants to wait until Saturday morning to run this errand.
Sweep the floor.Done! Squeeze the husbands Mat. No, "mat" is not a code word. Get yer mind out.Done!
- Begrudgingly do two pieces of work to save myself from feeling guilty even though I feel it serves the person who needs it the right that they gave it to me a week late and rude coworker behavior is one thing that drives me toward another level of burnout .Decided that I wanted to keep the day "work free", and took pictures of the craft room instead. (Future Post)
- Find time to read the self help book I bought when I decided to see the positive in being laid off or the other book I bought but this one is to help my body and soul, or the book club book that I'm actually enjoying, or most importantly the book I bought to make my own kombucha because it's so damn expensive and I'm worried that my scoby might go bad.
- Talk to the husband about money. Yawn.
- But most importantly, spend some quality time with my family. Daughter wants to watch BIG.
Wake each morning and give yourself One Thing. One thing that will bring you joy. Even if it's lying around in your PJ's and watching the first season of a show a friend recommended you watch while you wait for the next season of House of Cards. Bringing yourself joy each day will lead to contentment and peace, which will ultimately lead to opportunities for bringing creativity in to your life.
Even if I only get to know my new serger for one hour today, at least it's something that sets me on the path to creating something tangible and gives me satisfaction and joy.
Can you wake tomorrow and give yourself a promise to do one thing?

I found these hearts on Pinterest. They were linked to a blog called Vintage Fairy Tales.
Of course I immediately wanted to make my own. I made this one out of scrapbook paper, and used a vintage pick (cut off the stem) for an adornment.
This Saturday we're having a girls Crafternoon and I will make some out of old sheet music and/or pages from a dictionary.
More to come afterwards.
