The Seven Habits of Highly Effective Crafters

I came across this blog and thought of sharing it with my fellow craters. It’s excellently put together and is an impressive tribute to Covey ‘ s work.

Do you have a favorite inspirational book of all time? A book whose message you have woven into the core of who you are as a person?

I do – Stephen Covey’sThe 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. If you have not read this book, I highly recommend that you do.

Recently revisiting this book got me thinking: “how would the habits discussed in this book apply to creativity, making handmade crafts, and creating a collection of art quilts?”Can I apply Covey’s The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Peopleto the work I do on my tierneycreates business: striving to make a catalogue of handmade items infused with smiles to offer to my Etsy shop customers; and to working towards my dream of becoming a professional artist (The Wardrobe Meets the Wall)?

Eid Bunting

Hello dears,

I promised and I deliver.

I have been working on a fabric bunting for our upcoming Eid festival possibly on July 18.

For those of you who have visited my blog before, know about my infatuation with buntings. When I have been looking for ideas, I discovered buntings are really ‘in’ nowadays, Fabric, lace, burlap, tule, you name it and you will find bunting of each type and colour at weddings or birthday parties etc.

I had already made a baby bunting out of cotton and completely fell in love with it. You will find the details and my tale of  the ‘ultimate discovery of a bunting’ here.

I tried that same method and this time added letters to it. I struggled with it and using felt had made my other business bunting heavy that I made for an outdoor fair.11329978_870804266318159_6153238584583057219_n

But then I found this blog where the crafter suggested to just sketch out letters with a free hand and cut them out rounded.

I stitched them on to the triangles but then I realized that it needs some bling. Off to Walmart I went and bought a fabric glitter glue to add a shimmery border to the letters. They turned out so cute.

Sew them together and viola! My Eid Bunting is ready.

If you happen to drop by please let me know how it looks. Thanks and till the next blog!
