Today was a big day for me. Rich pulled all of his things out of the closet in my craft room so now I shouldn’t have any more excuses as to why I’m so disorganized. While he was doing that, I was going through a ton of things in our basement, trying to organize the things I want to donate to the hurricane victims, as well as prepare for my cousin’s visit tomorrow.
I’m really excited as Shelly and I had so much fun last time we crafted together, and this time she’s bringing a friend with her, Linda. Shelly has ideas she’d like to tackle and I don’t think her project will take very long. After hers though, I want to surprise them both by making Christmas wreaths. I bought several and have tons of embellishments for them. They can make them for their homes, their families, or for cemeteries, and we will probably have a mix of all three. I plan on making mine for my parent’s graves, as I’ve never put anything on them for Christmas and think it’s about time I did. Shelly just lost her step-father this year, so she might want to make one for that grave as well. We probably won’t talk about what we’re doing with the wreaths when we are on camera, as I don’t want this to be a downer for anyone, but it is a fact of life, and eventually, we all come to the stage where we do these kinds of things…
Shelly wants to play with the Tableau of Terror stamp that I used last Halloween as she really liked it. I promised her we could make cards with it and I’m a woman of my word.
She also has a secret project that she wants to surprise Linda with, and I’m looking forward to helping her create this, as I think it’s something a lot of my viewers have made, or may want to make in the future, so it should be a fun video. I always love crafting with someone else and it’s especially fun with family and friends. I’m hoping we have three videos to show for our afternoon’s efforts and that everyone gets something new out of them. I know I’ll be learning a new craft tomorrow and am really looking forward to it.
