Yep, I know, I know, I need to make kits for the Romantic Cottage Christmas workshop November 23rd.
But I've been having too much fun playing with all the supplies I have out to create the kits How on Earth could I resist taking an extra set of wings and turning them into a little ornament on their own?
So nice, I did it twice.
I've been experimenting with different ribbons and lace to see which makes the best wing texture.
And yes, there will be kits, eventually. I have all the Tart Tin Trees wrapped up and ready to go, in neutral and pink so my guests will have a choice. (I love having extra choices, the fun part of a workshop is seeing how varied one project looks done in different ways)
But, gosh, where there are little remnants lying on my table, I can't resist turning it into something.
I have been way too distracted by shiny things this week!
While cutting up this beyond wonderful, pink flock wallpaper, I couldn't let the scraps go to waste. Some I cut into die cut shapes to use later, but if there were any snippets too small for that, I used them to wrap around the spools for my little trees.
I treasure each little, left over, bit too much. To me, the old paper is too precious to let anything usable go to waste.
And I love a good excuse to get out of the task at hand...
But now, back to work. I really do enjoy putting kits together, and an excuse to stop and play just extends the fun. I refuse to look at it as procrastinating. It's too much fun to be labelled in a negative way!!
