I wasn't born with wings, so I'm trying to make my own
Sunday, November 12, 2006  

Well, it was another unproductive weekend. I just can't seem to get my fiber schwerve on. At work, one of the things I'm working on is a book on handmade cards and I've been feeling a bit inspired by that. The artists we're working with are very talented and use some great materials. So, Saturday I went out to a local scrapbooking store to get some paper to play around with. Their selection wasn't great, but I figured I would get a few things to try it out first before I went on some buying spree online. I thought it would work well if I used my rotary cutter to cut the paper, but when I went to get it, it wasn't where I thought it would be, which caused a major excavation in the craft room. It's official. I own one of everything. I cannot believe the sheer amount of STUFF I own. When I finally do get a house and move, some major destashing and organization will occur. I tried to start on that last night, but I ended up feeling completely overwhelmed. It's going to be a LONG process. Anyway, the rotary cutter was finally unearthed and I did a little playing around. Here are the results:

The holiday paper was the cutest stuff they had, so I figured I could make our holiday cards as my little experiment. The gumdrops are my favorite. The stripes are just for some fun, girly cards. I have three of each of these designs and some more paper cut in different designs, just not glued together yet. These each also have thin strip of the decorative paper running along the inside. I'm really happy with the results. It was a fairly simple process, but I think the finished product looks pretty polished. I think I'm also going to buy more of the holiday paper so that I can line envelopes to match. But, that's about the limit of my craftiness this weekend. A few more rows on each sock and some spinning of the solid blue fiber. Whee! Hopefully I'll be able to get my poop in a group this week and get some actual progress made. If not, I have a couple of fiber artist friends coming into town this weekend and they'll whip me into shape. I'm so excited to see them! Fiber friends are the best!

Welcome to the Spinning Wheel!
