The topic: Crafty stuff

As I mentioned in an earlier entry, I got the craft stuff done. I started on this when Katrina was just a tropical storm. I spent late nights watching the storm news and getting my craft ducks in a row.

By last Sunday, I'd made a total of two of these things. And I wasn't really happy with the second one. I told Brian I was just going to quit. I have some store bought items like this and I'd study them to try to see how a certain step was done and I just couldn't see it. I perused books at Michael's craft store, even bought one that had instructions, a 101 type of book, but there was nothing there that explained how this was done.

It was just more work than I wanted to do.

When I was whining to Brian about it, it hit me what I may have been doing wrong. It was so clear. I don't know why this wasn't addressed in the how to books, it wasn't an obvious answer. So, I started on the other ones and by late yesterday afternoon, I'd gotten all fifteen of them done, including redoing the second one.

I got an awful lot of superglue on my fingers, pulling superglued fingers apart isn't one of my favorite things. And the superglue affected how I worked because I didn't have much feeling in my fingertips. That stiff coating didn't help.

lisaviolet is fifty something, married with no kids, takes care of lots of cats, likes taking photographs, loves Southern California weather and spends altogether too much time avoiding her responsibilities.
