Apparently It’s August Now

I mentioned that I have been working on some new craft projects to share. First is a Disney-themed mini album. i think it came out really well.

Then I made a couple of different “folios.” One has a pen attached and a removable notepad. It is Christmas themed so you can use it to make your Christmas gift lists and there is a pocket to keep the receipts for purchased gifts.

And the next is a Halloween-themed one.

I am really in love with these folios and have a ton of ideas for other ones. I got the idea from another crafter, Maymay of Maymay Made It. I haven’t had a chance to post these in the Etsy shop yet but they will be there soon!

Finally, I am in the process of making this:

I found these boxes at our local dollar store last year and really liked them. I am always saving the cardboard inserts that come in packages. I think these were from pillowcases. I just need to finish decorating it. BUT I GOT CALLED FOR JURY DUTY! Right now I am juror #10. We have another day of jury selection and then I would expect the trial to begin next week. The judge said that just wanting to be doing something else is not a good enough reason to be excused – LOL. Fortunately it isn’t a high profile case so hopefully it won’t last long.

And that’s my crafty life for now. What do you think? What have you been up to? Ever serve on a jury?

  2. I love your boxes and it’s obvious that you put a lot of work – and creativity – into them. I’ve been to jury duty a few times. I’ve also been on a few cases but mostly I just sit all day waiting to be called. Thank goodness I enjoy reading! I’ve seen some people who literally just sit there, staring at the back of the head of the person sitting in front of them… yikes!

  3. You’ve been so busy and so creative!! I need to knock on wood, I’ve never been requested for jury duty. I hope the case goes quickly and that you’re able to get back to creating. 🙂

    Knock on wood, the two times I’ve been called for jury duty they ended up not needing me so I never had to go in. I hope for your sake it’s not too long!

    I think you’re very talented. Yes, I’ve served on several juries. Also more times I haven’t been selected after sitting through the process.
