These are some crafts I have been working on recently:

A Doily Tote
Canvas Tote (mine is recycled, because I liked the color better)
Lace Doilies
Needle & White Thread
Sewing Machine (optional)

Tack on doilies, I hand-stiched these on starting out around the outside and working my way to the inside to really secure them on the tote. 
Next, I used a sewing machine but you could hand-stitch this as well. Sew ribbon around the top from the front all the way around the back and finish on the side.

 Quilled Snowflake

I am trying out a snowflake quilling kit. If you think it's pretty grab a kit, I don't think I can give you instructions for this one.

 Dance Painting

I was given a set of paints for Christmas, while I am not an artist with a paint brush, sometimes I feel inspired. So, I paint what I want to and I wanted to paint this. This painting to me is my feeling of when I dance I constantly have to lay down things to God, like inferior pride, superior pride, anxiety, impatience...the list goes on. And when I lay those down, God always has enough grace to carry me through that class/day and it is quite a beautiful thing.

That tote is ADORABLE, I would have never even thought of that!
