Craft or Sleep?

I finally made some more garlands that I have been wanting to make!

Do you have a hard time sleeping when you want to be crafting?!

Just wanted to show you these!
Have a wonderful week!

Hi Maryjane, I went and checked out your new Etsy Store tonight. Just adorable! Love the name you picked out. I also have 2 Etsy stores!
I love your Garland! I really liked the ones you did for Mother's Day too.
Love, Ann

Yes, Crafting wins over sleeping by far...for me it's up early...while everyone else is sleeping...
Love the garland. I just found a whole bundle of vintage cards when we were going through my mom's things. Was looking for ideas for something to make with them. Hope you are having a good weekend. ~Natalie

Craft or Sleep? I love it, that is such a challenging dilemma, LOL! Love your new garlands! They are both very pretty! :)

Hello Maryjane,

I hate going to bed at night. There are alwasy just so many other things I want to do. Your new store is very cute!! I made your homemade laundry soap the other day. I love it. I haven't been able to find the pink zote soap yet, so I just used Fels Naptha. Anyway I love your blog...I am always waiting for a new post to read. One day soon I hope to have an Etsy shop of my own.

Oh, they are so pretty! I can just imagine that your brain must be working overtime, and that's why you can't sleep. That's what makes you able to craft such fabulous creations. Congratulations on your new Etsy. I'll check it out. laurie

Hi Maryjane....

Oh yes......sometimes I have to force myself to go to bed....You know....the second wind? Then I can't sleep.

Your garlands are ever so cute.

Blessings,
Spencer

Congratulations! The garlands are all so adorable! Since my crafting space is in my bedroom, I usually cannot craft on those sleepless nights. . .(my husband wouldn't sleep very well. . .) but I understand that feeling of choosing between crafting or sleeping!

Stephanie said...

Cute Garlands! I still have my 4th of July one up. I love that... sleep or craft. Ummm, I think craft!

Hi Maryjane,
I just found your blog, and what a delightful time I had spending my lunch hour at work reading through many of your posts. I love everything about your blog and you are just the sweetest gal.
And yes there have been many nights I stayed up to late to work on my sewing or knitting projects, when I should have been in bed, you see I get up at 3:00am for work.
I am going to add you to my favorites so I can keep in touch.
Enjoy your day,
Elizabeth
