The plan to rejoin the parents so we could make a mess over at their 'holiday ready' house was stalled when the craftiest grand kiddie disappeared into my playroom as soon as I stepped into my 'dressing' room. ;^)
She was joined by her only slightly less crafty brother.
My job was to deliver them ready for photo opportunities. This meant no jam/glue, or smudgy fingers but clean, curled and cute! Josh insisted on a curler which I was counting on his toque to flatten! Eliana is a girly girl who wouldn't think of taking them out before time!
But now the party is over and the the mess on the worktable must be dealt with.
I LUV books. This is only a small part of my craft/hobby stash. And I can't even grasp the number of tutorials in the magazine stack!
A clean work surface means a brand new start and that is what is coming up. I am planning to do book studies in 2012. It made perfect sense to me to do 12 books in 2012 but the first book is 'Threads- The basics and beyond' and even were I to start tonight, I seriously doubt I could do it in even 2 months.
And then I have all my various interests! I tried breaking it down into a few main categories. Still daunting!
So I'm thinking I will still try to narrow things down to 12 specific books and give it the good ol' fashioned workshop 'try'!
I'll be working on the various books as I refine my artistic talents, which are many and varied.
I can see from all the different stacks that thread is a common link to just about all my interests. I had also ordered two sampler packs of thread. And I really should make an album of all of Nina's abilities and accomplishments. Kind of a brag book! lol I'll be posting the best efforts on TNTN each Wednesday in 2012.
