WHAT IS IT ABOUT THE CHRISTMAS SEASON....
that makes it impossible for me to get to even one of the projects I've been waiting all year to do?
I'm seriously thinking of starting in January, so I actually get some of my holiday crafts done - maybe do 1 or 2 a month. Could I? Would it make me sick of Christmas if I dabbled in it all year long? Could I ever be sick of Christmas?
So I have these great ideas....
for paper trees
folded or pleated
plain or embellished
fancy accordion styles
some with tinsel, some with crystals
and this one, [please someone tell me how to make it] is from book pages
and this one from sheet music
and all with glitter
I have pinecones
paper embellished tart tins
ideas for decoupage
and ways to make stars from cereal boxes
and candy containers from toilet paper rolls
all adorable and ingenious, and surprisingly
Even feathered friends, without feathers
and paper flowers
love these with the teasel centers!
and I haven't made ONE!
If I could have made just one, adorable, wee, glittering
I would have felt so - fulfilled!
or mastered the art of making one of these beautiful, intricate, curled, glued and glittered
that would have been amazing!...
but, I failed... and
I have only 4 days left.....
(I'm definitely going to have to continue my Christmas crafting all year - I mean, seriously, these are only the PAPER ideas - you haven't seen the felt, fabric, wood, glass, button, wire, clay....)
I have 4 days left -
what one would you do?
