Happy Friday! I have the next nine days off of my actual job…yay!! I have miles to go before I am ready for my show next week but that’s work that I choose to do.
Last night I started working on a book page garland but I just wasn’t feeling it. I am 95% done with my mason jar tissue holders. One more layer of paint on the lids and filling them with tissues is all that is left. I think they came out cute. Here are some of them….
I felt like a sing a long while I was making so I put in Once More with Feeling (the Buffy musical). Then I put in Footloose, holy crap am I old! I did make a new project last night. It’s always so exciting for me when a project that I have had in my head for a while turns out beautifully. I took it to work today and it was quite popular. Let me introduce my newest creation with book pages….Fairy Fashions…..
I knew there was a reason that I saved the baby’s breath from the girl’s graduation party. It came in handy last night. I used diamond dust instead of glitter and I think the next one I will use regular glitter and see if looks less blotchy. I’m still excited about it!
I had a nightmare Wednesday night that I was at a craft show and I only had two wreaths. The boy had to come get me to take me home to pick up my wares and he was driving with one tire off the road. When I got back they took my black tablecloth and told me I had to use their white one. It was weird and full of anxiety. Usually when I am stressed I dream that I can’t get into my locker and I have to get to class. I hate that dream.
Speaking of class….I have an appointment Monday morning at the university to take some placement tests. English and reading on Monday and that doesn’t really concern me. It’s the math that is going to blow. They are doing some kind of transition on that one so it’s not available at the moment. Then I am having lunch with my brother at the vault restaurant. Finally, some one on one with this brother. We never talk anymore and my dad is always around now that he is retired. Can’t avoid one without avoiding the other and I miss my brother.
I hope I am able to find the happy medium between “making”, catching up on things, getting ahead on things, and relaxing. I’m not sure if I can pull that off…..Zia
