This is what my dining table looks like when I try to craft.
My friend, Melissa, came over the other day, saw my dining table, declared it tidy and said that I was exaggerating when I stated it was a mess. She saw it when I had everything in neat piles. Now it's just one big pile.
I was inspired last month by the one and only Creative Carmelina. That girl has talent. She posted projects she did with crocheted chains. Simple enough, but it's taken me this long to finally sit down and do something with the idea.
I stayed up late last nite just trying to come up with a little something.
These are my first attempts. I had a problem with smearing the glue so need to sort that out. I guess I have to just be a little more careful. But then again, if it's handmade, does it have to be perfect?
Today I received two nice surprises. Our Middle School Principal went to London for a recruiting fair. I did the prep work for it so he brought back this mug as a thank you. I was just doing my job, but isn't it nice to be appreciated.
He didn't even know that I already have a collection started of these mugs from Starbucks. Some from the States ...
And these are from Jordan, Kuwait and Madrid. Love the colors for Jordan and Madrid.
The second gift was from our Registrar who is from Lebanon. Handmade soaps that are scented with orange blossoms. Divine! I placed them in a bowl of handmade soaps I already have.
Well, I need to go clean off my dining table. I hope that you have a day filled with surprise and delight. Many blessings, Tammy
