Hello everyone and welcome to another week.
This weekend was a busy one, with everything from car crashes to crafting. My cousin and I were in a minor bingle – no one was hurt, just lots of damage to the cars. But even a minor bingle can cause major dramas and really shake you up. We were both a bit stiff and achey afterwards, possibly more from the stress of it rather than any injury or physical issue. But we consider ourselves lucky that it wasn’t a worse accident and that we didn’t have any of the kids in the car at the time.
It seemed to be a weekend of dealing with dramas, so Sunday afternoon and a few hours free for crafting was a welcome distraction. I actually got lots done in a really short space of time. I am still struggling with the crappy weather and its effects on glue-drying time. I keep getting lots of wrinkled paper and creases where I don’t want creases! But this is mostly due to my impatience and lack of care taken, so I can’t really blame the weather (though I will continue to do so).
The first piece I finished was this framed collage. Very simple but I liked how it turned out and I might do some more framed pieces. For some reason “Thoroughly Modern Millie” kept popping into my head when I looked at this little mousey-girl, even though her style of dress is not of the right era. She’s definitely a “Millie” though, and ready to take on the world, as a single girl (rather than the original Millie had planned).
Hope your weekend was drama-free and full of creativity and fun.
