Today has been good.
I’m back home from my sister’s now and got to sleep late after a hectic – but very fun – Thanksgiving. I then had my coffee an piddled around, one of my favorite things to do. Then I got into some crafting! I had some things to work on for a couple of swaps that I’m in. I have a few to finish up and then I’m done, meaning that I’m not going to get into any more. I’m swapped out. Although they are and have been fun, they take a lot of time and money and are a gamble for a return. So, best that I call an end to it.
In the meantime, here are a couple of things I made today for swaps to send out:
This is a piece I made called “Wordy Girl” for a Mail Art swap with the theme word TEXT. This collage piece has been made from cool salvaged papers, scrapbooking adhesive letters and a silhouette that I made from an old novel page. I sewed along the edges and through the word line and cut around the whole piece with pinking shears. I thought it looked fairly cool.
This is a button wreath door hanger that I made for one of two ornament swaps that I’m in. I got these super-cool white vintage buttons from JustPickedVintage. I added two gold bells and a gold ribbon and TA-DA! I think it is pretty darn cute.
It was fun being all creative today. Hope all of you have had a good day too!
