Hi Crafty Friends!
Tonight I am sharing something I started making last week but only just managed to finish and photograph it today – and just before it got dark – which btw is 4pm!!!!! This is for my Kraft+ submission for their November challenge and it was all about flowers so I had to enter!
I want to make beautiful things even if nobody cares
and really that just about sums up my entire approach to arts and crafts. I just want to make things, hopefully beautiful, and I don’t care if anyone cares or not. I just like making the things. My sister on the other hand, likes to buy beautiful things, from shops, lol, and has no interest in making them herself, but I have always felt that urge to create something from scratch, so this quote is perfect for me.
I had planned to do some watercolour flower painting for this challenge (maybe even some Aussie natives!) but we are in the middle of a “cold snap” and it’s currently -3C and I can’t feel the ends of my fingers so dexterity with a paintbrush is not happening lol.
I am entering this card in Kraft+ November Challenge which is held on their Facebook page. This month the inspiration photo is:
