Here's the first page in my summer journal/altered book project. Although it may not be as busy as most altered books, I think I'm going to like it. The process certainly was fun…just throw it on there and hope for the best, mixing glue and paint… I love the way the glued-together pages are crinkly.
I can't wait to have more time to work on it.
And I'm having so much fun now that I've broken my own promise to me, about knitting. I promised that I wouldn't work on anything else until I had completed my first shawl. IT'S TAKING SO LONG…IT'S JUST SUCKING THE LIFE RIGHT OUT OF ME!!!! So I started on a little boy sock. I know it doesn't much look like a boy, but this is yarn that I already owned and that Will requested! I'm actually already working on the foot, I was just too lazy to go upstairs and take another picture! lol
Also been looking on the internet for Minky Chenille at a good price… If anyone has suggestions where to buy, please let me know. Why is that stuff so expensive??? Yep, got a new blankey in mind. I'm thinking chocolate brown minky and maybe this cute, vintage-looking owl fabric on the front…
There's one with a pink background and one with a beige background…haven't entirely made up my mind yet, just fell in love with the little owls.
I'm going for something like this, but in an adult throw size:
If you'd like to check out this etsy shop, here's the link: http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=103775 . Another really cute esty shop that I lucked up on is this: http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5077416&order=§ion_id=&page=1 . This is the lady who makes those irresistible recycled sock and sweater dolls that I mentioned in a previous post. I love etsy…so much inspiration to be found there. I absolutely love seeing what others are doing, dreaming that someday I'll be able to make cute stuff too… hehehe
Time to go get coffee. I was going to do yard work and cut the grass today, but the weather isn't going to allow it. We got a thunderstorm and hail last night (tore up all my flowers) and it's rainy and gloomy today… supposed to be that way the next few days. I hope it clears up for Boy Scout Day camp this Saturday… We'll see.
Hope you have a great Thursday!
