Craft wire, winter and more
October 27, 2006
It’s funny how I tend to explore things, one at a time. I’m into altering postcards, then making cards, then I would try out fimo, then collage. Well, today was craft wire day. It was so much fun! I love the look of it, I love that I can curl and twist it, and add buttons and beads. I’ll be using it more! I was just thinking today I should go and get some interesting beads, I think I could make some beautiful charms and danglies with craft wire. So for a swap I’m doing, I made a wall ornament I’m very satisfied with. It’s made from dictionary page strips, ribbon, and a chinese charm in the middle. The idea I took from the current Marie Claire Idees which features beautiful interesting ideas with books and book pages! As usual with my photos, this one doesn’t do justice with the crafty result 🙂
The I did two small signs with my partner’s children’s names. I know they’re very simple, but I think they’re sweet. I was trying not to make them too cutesy, and I like the result. I hope they will, too!
On a different note, they say the winter is here (it isn’t yet!). I hate winter (although, and maybe because, I was born during the winter – one month and one week to go before my birthday…yikes!), and I’ve decided to write a “10 reasons the winter isn’t so bad post”, BUT – I can’t find ten reasons! I can only find 1: I love winter clothing. Other than that, the winter is cold, wet, grey and cloudy. Oh, I think I just found another one: 2. On cold, wet and cloudy days, it’s fun to stay home and craft. I’ll keep you posted if I find any more reasons to like winter.
And one more thing for today, take a look at this wonderful charm swap – it’s so beautiful and inspiring! I’m tempted to join a similar swap. I have to think whether I can commit to making 25 charms…hmm…
Have a wonderful weekend!
