This evening I went through a few of my crafts that I started last summer and, when I have time here and there, in between studying, or when I need a little break, I'll work on a few pieces at one time. Very rarely do I work individually on one project and complete it in one go. I like having an assortment of half-completed projects, because when I'm feeling bored working on one thing I know I can move over to something else...and I also find that when I go back to it, I go back with a different vision.
A few years ago, mum and I had an idea of having a sale in our home. I was in high school at the time, so a lot of my friends, their mums and grandmothers came by. It was very much a girls night and afterwards, we went to the Midnight Madness sale at our mall and spent most of our earnings...the rest we spent on take-out! So, with no more crafts left, a new wardrobe and a gut full of pizza, the only thing left to do was begin all over again! We've made everything from 'fairy jars', collages made with vintage magazine ads, and an altered art picture of Marilyn Monroe...everybody's favourite blonde bombshell (except my mum's...we all know that that's Doris Day!)
We've sold at various venues and this year, we are hoping to find a spot that we can return to on a regular basis to sell our items. In the meantime, it's always fun creating and coming up with new ideas.
