I can’t believe I did it.
I have confessed it here before – I’m not a crafty person.
Here’s my excuse – I’m slightly dyslexic. If I didn’t have my rings on I would be completely confused about left and right. When I look at instructions I’m never sure what way to hold things or how to cut them.
But I seem to remain forever hopeful that someday I’ll be able to do crafts.
I’m still working on a scarf that I started 2 years ago. It has yet to warm my neck but it keeps me from snacking in the evenings which in itself is a worthy cause 🙂
But I resist.
I would need one of you to be here with me.
“Look, this is the way you do it.”
“No, not that way!”
“What are you doing????”
“Oh give it here – I’ll do it for you”.
But every now and then I am tempted beyond my ability to resist.
Especially if I am not investing any $ in what would probably surely be a lost cause.
These captured my imagination. And they only required:
- paper – I have that.
- scissors – ditto
- tape – yup
- a stapler – bingo!
No pictures of the process. It was enough to make it and stay sane calm, let alone take pictures along the way.
But I did it – it’s a tiny lopsided. I’m not sure I put it together exactly right.
But I like it.
I should have waited for a sunny blue sky background – or a lovely glowing candle lit evening to take the picture. But here it is – on a cloudy gray December morning – and I still think it’s pretty 🙂
I think I’ll get some gold spray paint – or maybe glitter paint. And spray them.
You made my day!
