I had a no-so-busy week, no-so-busy just because I decided not to stress myself with everybody's issues around here. Not that they bother me but I'm a very worried person when it comes to the people I love. I worry to the point of putting my own health on the edge. Nope, it wasn't the fairies. They're pure joy...Anyways, I decided to get ready for my little fairy's 5th birthday and throw in a few crafty presents in her gift box.
I got this pretty picture of the process
Yummy colors and recycled, or should I say up-cycled materials... I got a couple of t-shirts to work on and make them pretty. Since she's growing so fast I had to go with something she'll feel comfortable using any day. Let me tell you I don't now what happened to the girly girls with pretty bows and 'dresses.' This little one of mine only wants skinny pants and t-shirts. I have to remain her that she is only four years old and that is not her job to worry so much about her looks...
I cut though a few old t-shirts to make these circles. Then I free motion-ed on them with some stabilizer in the back. This project gave me so many ideas for the future, I can't wait to find the time and gather my materials...
And because one was not enough, I made one more
This is the first time I make something like this. Inspired by this girl, I wanted to give it a try to the little houses thingy. Why not, right? Let me tell you that far from criticizing her, ahem, ahem;I would applaud her patience (and the patience of anyone who enjoys the making of this.) Craft-wise putting together all those teeny tiny pieces is the most unpleasant work I have ever done. They move so easily out of place!!! this project was driving me crazy. Definitely not my thing.
I love the result, only the result.
So there you have it, these was one of my week projects. Now, I'm ready to start with the preparations for her birthday. We'll take her to the movies to watch "Princess and the Frog"and then out for some lunch in down town. Great for a no-so-busy week, ha? I'll be back next week with my deer obsession.
