The weather has been amazing here of late. I believe Vernon told me in the past 40 days, we’ve received over three inches of rain and wet snow. That is simply, simply unbelievable.
And it’s cold. I mean, in the 30’s and 40’s cold. With wind.
I’ve been hiding out indoors. Sitting around.
Of course, it gives me time to make something…
(As a sidenote… people always ask how I have time to do these crafts. In The Before Time, as a young student at Casper College, one cold and wintery day, I was headed for my mom’s office. She worked in Student Personnel, so I knew all the counselors and Dean of Students… but as I wandered lazily through the hall, the President of Casper College asked me what I was doing. “Killing time, ” was my immediate, though quiet, response. I was very intimidated by Dr. Tim Aley! His office was separate, and I knew my mom respected him greatly. He rarely spoke to me, and on this occasion, I was mortified to be caught doing *nothing*. He looked at me, “When trying to kill time, you should work it to death!”, and he turned and strode away. Believe me, I’ve never forgotten his words! So… why not create something? It’s rather fun work, but still…)
Plus, I made some more today… a butterfly, some straight earrings,and a tree of life pendant.
Then, there are the tennis shoes I zentangled…
All of which need photos… and then perhaps, they will be for sale. I don’t know if I’m good enough yet to make a product for sale, but it’s tempting!
