Hey there friends,
As promised, I'll be showing some 'behind-the-scenes' creating shots as I prepare for the upcoming Christmas craft show.
It's been a whirlwind of creativity around here... and the real key is for me to limit the amount of ideas spewing out of my brain. Yes, it's a discipline to stick to my 'list' of what I want to create when other notions keep interrupting and squealing: "make ME instead!"
Lately, I have to keep reminding myself that while I can make a bazillion different things,
I should only make what delights me (vs. the torturous filter of 'will this sell?').
So, without further ado, these are my happy creations of late:
Paint dipped wooden pendants with geometric gold gilding!
(A clever way to hold the pendants while the paint dries = clothes pegs).
I think my craft table is going to be bursting with funky colours this year.
While the predominant themes will still be lots of turquoise and wood grain... since I'm such a sucker for them.
I'm looking forward to showing you more new works in the upcoming weeks to this show (Dec.8/9th)... so stay tuned!
For the record: this week is going to be crammed with d.i.y's/upcycling/projects!
Turns out my manic-creative-side likes to go in all sorts of directions once I let it off the leash.
(Also it's a free form of therapy for me when we've been locked in this house of sickly kids for the past week and I think I'm going to go batty!!)
