This was a Christmas present that I finally finished this past weekend. I felt so bad, and I was so relieved to get it done. But boy was it a bear, no pun intended, to make! It wasn't necessarily difficult, but there were so many pieces and parts to make it just plain fiddly!

Hey everyone, I'm throwing back to this past Thanksgiving. I realized I never posted our table and our first shibori-ish project... probably because my mom and I were slightly bummed about the final result. Don't get me wrong, I love how our table looked, but our napkins and runners got a little washed out in the washing machine. Live and learn, right? Here's some more pictures though:

Today I repotted my 12 baby succulents that I propagated from one of my plants. (You can see them way back here!) They all survived (knock on wood!) and almost all of them have dropped the leaves that they grew from. I got the tiny little terra cotta pots and the hexagon dish at Hobby Lobby, making a pretty cute and functional little set up! I'm hoping they'll be much happier in their own little homes.
I'm learning to find joy in small accomplishments like this, especially when I have several bigger projects that aren't completed yet. In my mad crafting dash to Christmas I was unable to finish a a gift and am still struggling to see the light at the end of the crochet tunnel. But I think continually plugging away at it, and finding time to finish other small projects at the same time will allow the positive creative juices to keep flowing! That's the plan at least!
What's been making you smile?
