Sharing Crafts With a Friend March 18, 2012

Good day!

Friday afternoon, I met with the Paper Craft Fairy, aka my dear friend, Debbie, to try out pinwheel making, following the excellent tutorial found at The Lovely Cupboard.

According to me, everyone should have a craft buddy. It could be anything artsie, whether it’s paper, oils, fabric or beads. It’s all good!

Any challenging day can be made to go away, getting in touch with our creative selves. It’s sort of like a Calgon bath experience, if you’re old enough to remember those commercials!

We’re talking about folding and gluing paper!

To make the cutest darn things I’d seen all day! We were smiling ear-to-ear! All over some silly pinwheels!

This could be the “next big thing”, by golly! I may open a pinwheel store!

While I hope I have you smiling, check out this poor pooch, who’s a bit scared of visiting the doctor…

Here’s hoping you find lots of reasons to smile today!,

    Love your pinwheels, so cheerful. And the dog- awww, what a sweet & funny picture. Is he yours? I saw your comment over on Blog Guidebook that you will be coming to Haven, had to pop over and say hi! Hope we can meet. I’m loving your blog. 🙂

      Hi Sheila,
      No, the pooch isn’t mine! Pretty cute, though. Thanks for saying “hi”!

    The pinwheels are so fun and beautiful! To me some look very Asian inspired.
