Crafty & Colorful

By now you know I'm not a crafty gal.  I'd like to be, but lets face it, I'm not.  It's not that I can't do this stuff.  I think it's the fact that once I get started on a project I want to be done with it already. 

I've come across a great blog where I've gotten some super cute ideas for crafting.  Wonderfully cute things that I can use, add color to my life and I can actually finish what I started.  Today I made a mouse pad cover.  Quick.  Simple.  Super Cute!

First take an old mouse pad...this one has seen better days:

Cut a piece of colorful material you'd like to see each and every time you sit down to the computer:

Glue around the edges of the mouse pad:

Fold over the edges and secure with clips until dry:

Hey oooh!   You're done!  Give yourself a pat on the back and go show the family what a crafty gal you are.


I was feelin' so good about my finished project that I made this 2-2-Cute pin cushion. 

Carody gave me this flower pot for mother's day in 2004.  Over the years it's held a flower, toothpicks and a candle.  Now look at it!  I Love it!

Now I'm off to make a camera strap cover for my camera...color, color, color!  Yay COLOR!
