Didn't I say just yesterday that I was staying out of my studio. Not so much.
I bought this wonderfully whimsical pin from Frayed Edge Kathy last week and I just love it.
(Must read camera manual about close-up shots.) In fact, I wore it to church on Sunday on my denim jacket and it kinda blended into the blue of the jacket. I thought to myself, "I could make one in Christmassy colors. That would be fun."
Gather straws, beads, wire, fabric, glue, other stuff. Spread it all out on previously clean studio table.
I took this picture after I ate the cookie that was also sitting on the table.
And here they are...
I probably got carried away. I think I made about 20. Fun.
The kids and I watched the ABC Disney version of Once Upon a Mattress while I made the pins. It was delightful. Claire absolutely loved it. I can hardly believe Carol Burnett is 72! Wow. I did have some trouble explaining why it was a problem that Princess Larkin was pregnant though unmarried. Of course, we had that same discussion at church yesterday morning in regard to the BVM (Blessed Virgin Mary). Nothing that a good song and dance routine can't distract you from!
