Crafty


I went to a card party last Sunday--making cards, not playing cards.  I really liked these two projects because they are not overly fussy.

Mike has been working on the computer long hours for the past couple of weeks.  He is selling some of his rather vast collection of antique motorcycle memorabilia.  This has given him something to do during the rainy times, but it has also drastically cut down on the amount of time I have spent in my virtual world.

So, I have found other things to do. 
 I obviously was inspired by the origami card.

These are felted slippers.  I'm working on a second pair and a hat.

  2. I'm happy if you're happy.
    Crafting for me has never been anything but frustration. Except for knitting, which soothes me.
    Cutting out little pieces of things and sticking them together... Unh-unh.

  3. Oh, yes. I am very happy with scissors and glue in my hands. I have always been a person who is easily amused.

  4. you are, indeed, a craft woman. I'm wondering if there's anything you can't do.

  5. The cards are adorable. Was it a commercial card party, or just friends getting together and crafting? I'm guessing that scrapbook supplies could be used to make this type of card.

  6. Well, you are the crafty one! Beautiful results!
    Fortunately we were able to take our creativity outdoors and into the garden last week. And now I have boxes of stuff from my mother's house to sort through. It seems there is always something to do.

  8. I went to one of those card parties once, expecting not to like it and ended up having a ball. We did mostly stamping.

  9. I could use that pair of slippers - it's COLD here in CA! I like the origami but don't think I'd have the patience.

  10. I have some felted slipper--in CA--and I'm wearing them now. You would think, being wool, they wouldn't be so comfy, but they are great. You've definitely been productive.
