I must admit that I have become quite accustomed to life without a full-time job. "If you have the means, I would highly recommend it. It is so choice." (can anyone name the movie?) So to flaunt my time as a lady of leisure... here are a few of my crafty accomplishments:

1. a few hand-knit items; a couple others are hopefully being enjoyed by their new owners.

2. my new belt rug - which helps to cover the rather unsightly bedroom carpet

3. a re-finished sideboard/cabinet of sorts for the dining area (my roommate started the re-finishing, which I completed when she grew tired/busy)

4. re-finished kitchen table (another one my roommated started)... we got this table from a neighbor who had literally POURED lacquer over the table... it took hours of sanding and scraping... and although it's not perfect, i think it has a great "antiqued" look - oh, the table runner and curtains were another "crafty" addition

5. re-finished kitchen chair - my roommates are working on their chairs for our "shabby-chic" kitchen collection
