“Look Ma, no glue!”Posted: 01/03/2012
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year everybody! I am dying to get back home to my workshop and make stuff till I fall over. I’ve been gone almost three weeks on our trip to the Midwest/South, and have only visited craft stores four times. That’s good, right?
Since starting a job where I get to make stuff, I soon realized I’d go into withdrawals without something to do with my idle hands. I tend to turn into a terrible TV-watching, M&M-munching dolt when I visit my parent’s house, so I figured I’d kill a few birds with one (felt) stone and buy a few supplies. My mom has been impressed with my felt flowers (from Holidash) in the past, so I got a brush and a 3-needle felting pin to take home with me. My holidays will never be the same– she loved it! We’ve made a pact to craft together via Skype.
She took to the clip method from Infarrantly Creative really well– within ten minutes she’d put together a wonderful flower, then a stem in just a few more! I’m not sure why I’m surprised– that’s the gene pool I come from. Her’s is way better than mine!
I still ate a lot of M&Ms, though.
