About Me

My photo

I am a 37 year old nurse who is currently not working due to medical issues. I have chosen to pass my time crafting, but because I am not working, I have little money to spend on supplies. I have a small stash from while  I was still working but am now using what I have access to around the house. I also use things I can find cheaply at the dollar store, in the dollar bins, on clearance, or buy with coupons at Michaels and Hobby Lobby. I also like to shop thrift stores and garage sales for things to use in my crafting. You would be surprised with what you can find if you aren't afraid to prowl a little.

I haven't been doing well here the past week or so, but I wanted to show you a card that I paper pieced together.
All papers used were scrap papers. I think my scrap pile is about the explode. Twine is just plain cotton twine from the dollar store. The scene is actually a coloring page. It was quite humid when I made this and everything wanted to wrinkle up, so it's not the neatest, but I think it turned out absolutely adorable.
