decoupage saves the day

I have a billion knitting projects on the go right now.  Or about a billion.  They are all staring at me, wondering why I have neglected them for the past few days...weeks...years....  A cardigan with no hood.  A baby doll with no basket.  A basket full of knit leaves, their ends waiting to be woven in.  I could go on.  And on...Where is my motivation these days??

So what do I decide to do instead of finishing off these little lovies? 

Decoupage of course!  I picked up this charmer while thrifting the other day...

Sometimes, you need to take a break from funk-induced projects.  I am loving my new book end, and it was super fun {especially having to constantly peel the dried glue off my fingertips.  Loved doing that secretly in my desk in my younger years}.  My detour proved to be a success, as I am ready to pick up one of my many unfinished knits {I'm coming for you, neglected cardigan}.  We are headed to Saskatchewan tomorrow, which means several hours straight of uninterrupted, quality knitting time.  Excited! 

Have an amazing weekend!  Can you believe we are entering March!?


  1. i think you know how i feel about decoupaging with text... lets count this as a crafting success - now GET TO WORK!

  2. Lol ! I too loved peeling dried glue off my fingers in elementary school. So much so, that every once in a while I'd spread glue in my hands just so I could peel it off again. Yes, I was (am) a dork!
    I love how your project turned out. :)
