Pinterest Challenge - September 2011
This Post came out of this time. But although I was starting to have my creativity stirred by other things, I simply couldn't DO them because the film was hanging over my head. But then one night - I was probably complaining about being 'stuck' on Facebook and my, let's call her my cousin-in-law, Michelle, said - okay - here's a challenge (lord knows, I can't turn down a challenge!). We each will pick one thing from each other's Pinterest that we have to make in the month of September. I will pick for you, you pick for me. And Voila! We did it. And suddenly I had a different deadline. A fun deadline. I crafty deadline. It seemed to work. She picked for me the magazine bowl which I've been wanting to make for a long time, well, since Memorial Day weekend, anyway, because I think they look really cool. And boy do I have a lot of magazines. I picked for her some mason jar candle lanterns. Lucky for me I had started tearing apart a magazine (therapeutic in it's own way) earlier so I was able to jump right in. I think I had also made the base of a bowl. But now I had the "permission" to finish it! And I did. I ended up taking it to Stitch & Bitch one week so that I could get it done. And it's done!
