one thing. one week. challenge. *edit*

thanksgiving was pretty wonderful this year. 
good food, family, and only a short drive were all things to be thankful for!
and now its time to gear up for another whirlwind christmas season. is it just me, or does this time of year always fly by?!

to help me stay on track with all my crafting and gift-getting, I joined Amy's one thing-one week challenge. so motivating!
here's what I did last week (in the midst of piles and piles of homework!)

I had promised to make my sister a camera strap cover for her birthday (cough*2monthsago*cough) and finally committed to sitting down and making it. I used this tutorial but forgot to take a picture of the finished product!
These are the fabrics I used (thankyouverymuch Hobby Lobby discounts!)- an exaggerated damask for the the outside and a bright teal for the liner to add a pop!
I also worked on piecing together an apron I've been working on for far too long. Maybe I should make it my goal for next week to have it finished?

I also whipped this up to thank my wonderful mom for all her hard work on our awesome tgiving feast!

and now, its time to attack this week with a vengeance. Transcribed interviews, final papers, practicum interviews, small group, and working are in my future for the next few days!

...but not before I make some sewing/crafting goals for the week.
1. FINISH apron. seriously this time.
2. hunt down some supplies for my homemade candles. clearance aisle?
3. who am I kidding? that's more than enough.
