About 2 1/2 weeks ago I found out who my partners were for a couple swaps that I'm doing. Now I'm trying to figure out where those 2 1/2 weeks went! I have about ten days to finish two projects and get them in the mail. It always seems like I have all the time in the world when I sign up for a swap and then that time flies!! But, I need this. All I've made since before Christmas are a few birds nests. My fingers are itching to create, my idea notebook is full of wonderful inspiration ~ now if I can just get my health and my family to cooperate I'll be all set. I've gathered my supplies for a 5x7 fabric collage and some altered eggs. I've sketched and written out my plans and the weekend is coming! I love the weekend!
This probably seems like a lot of buttons for a 5x7 collage ~ I'm only using 6 or 8 of them, but I like to have options! Plus I need some for the altered eggs!
I love this piece of fabric. It was one of my thrift store finds last summer. It has wonderful texture and body. I think it will work beautifully for the collage.
The plan is to start creating tonight. We're (finally) celebrating Elijah's 3rd birthday Saturday afternoon. Poor little guy had strep throat and ear infections two weeks ago so we had to cancel. After the party it will be back to crafting for a few hours.
Hopefully Sunday evening will find me back in the craft room where I'll be completing at least one of these projects. That's assuming I can hear myself think above all the Super Bowl noise going on in the room next door! Yes, there are football fans living in my house. No, I'm not one of them.
