Getting Creative

I’ve been left at home to ponder, what am I doing with my life?…  DH is away on business, and DD is on spring break and running around with friends.  I jokingly tell my friends, I will soon be out of a job;  23+ years of being a stay-at-home mom.  I probably have mentioned this before, and I will probably be talking about it again and again…  Meanwhile, with Koko and Hiro my steady companions, I have been having some fun doing crafts.  I signed up for yet another little Easter swap at Cozy Blanket.  After I saw this little needle felted applique mold at Tuesday Mornings, I knew just what to make.

We were asked to create 5 items no bigger than the palm of our hand, which Debby over at Cozy blanket would combine to make into a banner.  Here is the extra one I made into an ornament:

And as long as I was in a creative mood, I decided to make something for Saint Patrick’s Day.  I found this pretty lady over at Marges8’s Blog.   I surrounded her in a spray of green from Michael’s.  She has taken up residence in the corner of my kitchen as the rest of the house is already decorated for Easter.

And look at what else I found while rummaging through my craft bins – some air dry clay, I don’t even know how old it is, but it seems to be in good shape still.  My mind is going off again in another creative direction…
