Now that THAT'S over with...I must say, I've actually been crafting today. It started out as just another day...I was staring at this shelf in our hallway that's piled with random fabrics and half-started art projects. As I was choosing what to relocate to my new "sewing closet", I pulled down two huge bags of fabric strips that I'd intended on making into rag garlands. That's when the muse hit me...she downright slapped me across the face and then grabbed me by the ear and hissed..."What are you waiting for, Christmas?!!!"
Yes...Christmas a few years back, that's when I started making them! *sigh* So I decided to not think about it too hard, and to not tell myself to put it away or push it aside...I just carted the bags to the first floor and dumped them out. Who cares if the kids run through all the strips? So WHAT if they redistribute them all through the house?! They're going to do that anyway, may as well be something new for them to mess with. It must be boring playing with all those TOYS all day long.
You see, I've got some big projects on my plate that are due soon and the hardest part is starting. Lately I've been in the kitchen non-stop...the "to do" list never gets any shorter...I feel that if I stop doing dishes and laundry and cooking and actually do something crafty...I'm letting my chores slide. But if I don't get into art mode...these projects are going to be impossible to start. Sometimes I "unclog the pipe" in my creative brain by just going hog wild on an unimportant project.
