I had purchased a few containers of Flower Soft last year and of course, forgot I had them. I was talking to a friend and she mentioned them and I thought, geez, I need to get those out. So I’ve been trying to think of just the right project for them. I have a tree stamp set from Fiskars that has the tree as well as every possible thing you could attach to it including a bird, nest, flowers and several types of leaves. Perfect! So I stamped and played and found that the Flower Soft is so much fun. I know that I say that often and with so many different mediums, but honestly, it looks good and the more you put on the tree, the better it looks. I was going to do a small lilac branch on a stamp I had, but what the heck, if I’m going to use it, I want to make a horrible mess and cover almost the entire card front with it. I think it’s my style. All in all, I wish I’d used the Flower Soft before now, but then I wouldn’t have been as excited about it if I hadn’t had it for so long and finally discovered a good use for it.
I was at a garage sale and they had a bunch of scrapbooking supplies and I didn’t buy anything. I was really proud of myself that I didn’t buy anything, but then when I got back to my craft room I started to wonder where would I put one more thing since my room is overflowing with craftiness. I made the mistake of showing my room to a friend who was visiting, and luckily, Honey had decided to see what she could do with the paper in my garbage can so had paper all over the place. It looked like every time I make a project, I must just toss everything on the floor instead of using the garbage can. Needless to say, I was really embarrassed at the mess that was there and that most of the mess was par for the course.
I was answering comments and mentioned that I’m messy, make a lot of mistakes and have a few mishaps along the way and that maybe I should rename my channel, the three M’s. Messy, Mishaps and Mistakes. I really like it. It fits my channel so much better. After all, how many channels do you watch where the crafter whines when she has to use foam tape….not too many.
