Frosty & the Egghead

Frosty & the Egghead

Had a lovely day at Mum’s today, crafting and chatting.  Endless cups of tea, smooches with Alexander the Magnificent (our remaining beloved and very spoilt cat – he’s 16 now and looking great for his age) and lots of silliness (why is it no one understands me like my Mum?).

Mum’s been working on this little snowman for about two years.  Seriously.  She started his head ages ago and then he kept getting put away again and never finished.  She was determined to complete him today but secretly I think she will probably keep editing and adding to him over the next couple of days. I left it a bit late to take photos today, as always, so it’s not the best shot of the little guy.  He looks better in person though…

I faffed about making cards and some pendants.  I was having a bad-back-and-neck day so I was feeling not so great which makes me, in turn, not so good at being creative.  All I want to do is curl up in a big ball of painkillers and a hundred heat packs.  But life goes on and so must the creative muse.  I hate wasting a day so even if I’m in pain (which I have been, a lot this weekend) I try to make something.

I’m having a bit of an egg/wings/crowns moment currently, hence the following offerings (again, apologies for crappy photos – they’re blurry and at a weird angle…)…

Wasn’t at all happy with this one but it was glued on and about as good as it was going to get so I gave up…

Was going to collage this one but I actually liked it with just the one bit of paper on it…

My favourite item of the day!

I don’t know how “masculine” this one actually is…

Was a bit concerned about the “new skin” wording…then I figured that new skin and rebirth and all that kinda goes with butterflies and metamorphosis so I let it go…

Now it’s time for dinner and ironing (ugh) and possibly a very hot shower (my back, oh my aching, stupid back!) and ignoring all the boxes of crafting stuff I brought home with me and piled up on the floor.  I had a nice afternoon, let’s not spoilt it with housework and tidying up!  Hope you’ve all had a lovely weekend 🙂
