I’m trying to get into Zentangles and art journals. I get started but I loose interest. While I’m doing it I enjoy it but once I put it down I don’t think about picking it up again. Then I get on Pinterest and my creativity starts up again.
This is my first attempt at a Deco Mesh wreath. I like it ok, but now that I have messed with the “stuff” I will do my next one different. I followed a tutorial where they cut the mesh instead of making poufs and the mesh unravels.
I got the large spider web/spider and the bird at M’s during their clearance. I bought the chalkboard label at M’s sometime ago. It was a package of 8 in their $1.50 spot.
We are having a wreath exchange at work this Friday and had a limit of $25.00. The deco mesh cost me nothing (Daughter #1 had it left over from her Halloween wreath). I bought the wire frame with a 40% coupon. So when I add what I spent up it about $7.
For those of you who are following the progress of my Mother, she is doing very well. She turned 86 on 9/19/2014 and although she can’t take complete care of herself, she can do a lot more than we ever that she would be able to do after her stroke. She is a fighter! She has regained some of her ability to crochet and is in the process of making her first afghan in 2 years.
We face memory challenges every day, she has not forgotten me (or my BBF) and we are able to get her out for church and a little shopping.
Now let me see if I can’t at least post more often than once every six months!
