First I must thank the snow gods for providing me with a second shot at a Sunday since I spent my actual Sunday being sleepy and lazy despite desperately wanting to catch up on some RVA projects. After a fun Friday and Saturday with Adam, a great dinner at Belgium beer at the Draft Barn in Park Slope and then Phosphorescent at the Bell House I got to make my own chalkboard thought bubble!! I wish I had the money to buy some of them out there, but sadly I don't! BUT, I bought this bubble at Michael's (which has such a great array of wood shapes!) and applied chalkboard paint...and voila...I am inspired....so, even though I am still behind, here are my latest class editions!
Felt Teepee Village (project #3)
I am somewhat happy about these though there was definitely some trial and plenty of error!! Notice the snow???
Jersey Knit Scarf (Project #6)
This project was sooooooo much fun and I even made myself a pink headband with some extra jersey! I used a pink t-shirt I bought from Michael's for $1 and an old t-shirt from a Halloween themed wedding many many moons ago! I added a small 'X' from extra t-shirt, a ribbon strip, and a button. Sweet!
Felt Family Wall Art (Project #7)
This piece is titled: "Brother and Sister" and naturally I made it for my brother Chris. We are best buds, crazy music lovers who love to see music together, and we are both children of the 80's, so I thought the tapes would be fitting!! I gave this to him today and he has a perfect spot on his wall!
And here is the basic layout of Project #5. Generally I am taking the projects pretty literally since I am so pressed for time. All of this is to make me learn how to devote time to the important things...like creating!! But, I need some advice about his project...to dye doilies or not ro dye doilies??? What do you guys think about the layout?? I need to decide before I start the task of sewing!!
(Sorry about the terrible picture!!)
This wonderful craft session was brought to you by the sweet sounds of Beirut "March of the Zapotecs/Real People "Holland"; Animal Collective "Merriweather Post Pavillion"; Mates of State "Re-Arrange Us"; Vampire Weekend "Vampire Weekend"; Electric President "Sleep Well"; and Seabear "The Ghost Who Carried Us Away"...sigh...music is love!
And...after nearly six years of teaching...my first snow day!!!!
