FEATHERS!!!

18 Aug

So, since I’ve started working at my latest job, I’ve encountered some uber, extremely crafty women, who quite honestly make me feel like a farce. Yes, Miss Sadie Priss I am talking about you, don’t worry though, I’ve still got mad love for ya.

Anywho, I’ve never really considered myself a very crafty and or creative person, I can barely draw a stick figure, but I feel like I have good ideas and know what looks good with what, etc. So I try to see what I can come up with.

I’d say that my first real craft project was making cards for birthday’s and special occasions, a lot of my friends were into scrap booking at the time, but I couldn’t get into that cause if a project takes more than a few days for me to complete then forget about it. I am all about the instant gratification. But that really doesn’t explain why I don’t like to cook, but that’s a whole other can of worms.

So after the cards, came the wreaths, I kept seeing them when I would go to Micheal’s and AC Moore with my friends who were buying scrap booking items, and kept thinking to myself I could TOTALLY do this and it wouldn’t cost as much as buying a nice big one. Because you see I must have a different one for each season and the weren’t exactly what I wanted, so I needed to make my own.

Here is my fall one:

I also have a spring and winter one. Already had a summer one thanks to the sis-in-law. Also very talented. Her brother (my husband The Duke of Gingerland) is an artist, so you can see why I feel entirely inadequate when it comes to the creative/artistic projects in our house.

Being a new Mom to the heiress of Gingerland, my crafting has come to a screeching halt, as has everything else in my life that I enjoy (just kidding, well maybe only a little). So to get to my point (yes, I am very long-winded) I was at the mall yesterday during my “lunch break” and I saw these hair feather clip extensions, I’m probably too old to wear one being over the age of 30, but I honestly don’t give a crap unless I am looking really dumb, but I still think I’m funky enough to get away with it.

I bought it and have spent the day looking them up on Etsy to see what other people have done and what I need, etc. They look simple enough for me to attempt and then I can have the colors, etc.  that I WANT. Plus it’ll give me something to look forward to doing when I get home besides laundry and dishes. Ugh………..

So stay tuned for some pictures of my creations.
