Karla came over this afternoon and we played crafts. Karla worked on St Pats Day tags and I put the finishing touches on my journals for the Hippity Hop Easter Swap.
After I made this pair of journals, I realized they aren't very "springy"- but I do love this vintage toile wallpaper, so I hope the "swappee" that gets them isn't disappointed.
A friend at work saw the pail and wanted one- so I made this using another image from The Vintage Workshop. Please forgive my picture- I took it late on a not so sunny day, and borrowed the blue bird from Karla.
While we were crafting, I took a few pictures of the "inspiration" board in my craft room. This is the paper doll dress garland from the swap put on by Heather at Speckled Egg last summer. It hangs underneath the inspiration board.
Usually when Karla and I get together to craft we discuss opera, world politics, 17th century poetry, and the history of aviation- you know, the usual...but today we got a little silly and ended up issuing a "nut cup" challenge. We each have a stack of nut cups and we're going to see what crafty things we each can come up with. My first "project" consisted of turning the nut cup upside down and using it as a hat. I think Karla got a picture of this for her blog....
My nut cup hat idea might not win the challenge, but I'm already a winner. Look at this darling trophy cup bird nest that Robin in Virginia made for me, and sent home with Karla.
