That’s right. Today, on my birthday, I am ironing paper grocery bags!
I think I got this idea from the old HGTV show, “Room by Room.” (with Matt and Shari, you can still find them on You Tube.)I am making photo dummies in different sizes. ￼
I have a photo canvas being created right now that will be 16×20″. In the meantime, I can carry my paper dummy with me to see where it fits best.
I like it flanked on one side with a couple of 8×8’s.
Today, I’m making fairy lights for Vivien’s recently remodeled room at home.
I am using a string of white bridal lights, all-purpose white glue, and pieces of glittered, pink organza ribbon, cut on the diagonal, and tied in knots on each bulb.
I got a new order of charms, today. This was in it. It’s for me. I just hope we’re all here to see it.
I got to work at Mama’s House, again, yesterday. I did some glueing, sorting, and made some molds from stone beads and a drawer knob.I also planned and announced a giveaway.
The contest for my, “Tree Hugger” bracelet can be found and entered at facebook.com/karlakrafts.
I’ve been all down and out over needing to give up my studio, Mama’s House. If we move to Charlotte to be near the grandkids, it makes no sense to have a studio in N. Wilkesboro.
I’ve barely set foot in the place for the past two months, but I went down for a few hours the past few days.
I glued some Czech glass buttons and cabs into frames.
I painted and glazed some polymer clay pieces.
This is the liquid piece I tried. I left it in the mold, and baked abd baked and bake. Mostly that was a waist of time, but it tirned out pretty good:
I felt better those days, my spirits lifted. When a fellow Beady Bunch member posted this, I related:
I shipped this necklace to a customer who has a P.O. box at my same zip code. I took it to the post office, thinking it would never leave the building. Wrong!
That could’ve been true if I’d put stamps on it! Because I bought postage at the post office, my package had to go to the processing center. Instead of getting her necklace, today, my customer will get it tomorrow.
Currently, anything under 4oz. mails for $3.50 or 7 stamps. Why didn’t I just buy a book of stamps on the spot? Laura thought of that, but she was in the car. Next time!
Here is my first attempt at making ear cuffs for my granddaughter.
