It’s wonderful what forgiving myself for not being Wonder Woman did. It helped turn me back into my regular Wonder Woman self. I’ve been crafting away since then! I’ve constructed a super secret surprise craft project that I dare not tell you about, because people read this and it would ruin the surprise for Sunday. Don’t worry, I’ll post the pictures of my creation next week, hopefully along with reaction pictures.
I’ve sewn about 300 (or so it feels like) little HOT PINK flannel squares to replace cotton balls, etc for tasks like removing make up and nail polish. I even made my own make up remover inspired by “One Good Thing” by Jillee. I really like that blog. It has lots of recipes for things people usually spend lots of money on.
While I was sewing, I whipped up three snazzy eye pillows with really soft fuzzy fabric. I filled them with rice, rosemary, and lavender. Decadent little things in HOT PINK.
I finished a very cool mirror. (No pink was harmed in the making of this frame).
I’m working on a great jewelry rack. I need to add more hooks and some fabulous gold paint pen doodles. P.S. The paper behind it is the most awesome wedding wrapping paper we got. Thanks, Sadeghis!
I’m sewing yet again on some funny patchwork velvet pillows in teal, orange, purple, and, you guessed it, HOT PINK. No, you don’t get a picture of my Frankenstein pillows yet. Sewing curves that are supposed to lay flat is hard. But I got the fabric cheap at The Legacy Thrift Shop in Sebastopol (Check it out, it’s a craft thrift store!), so I don’t mind if I make some duds. It’s part of learning and they’re for my living room anyways.
So, enough pink for ya?
