Today dawned bright and beautiful. So I got jiggy with the craft room. I am planning on painting said room this weekend. I am not looking forward to the work but I AM looking forward to the end result. Because I spend so much time in this room I wanted it to be pretty. Right now it is SOOOO not pretty. Hence the face lift. (Ahh if only a coat of paint would make me look younger! Sigh)
Today was getting ready for a class tonight and then I started packing it all up and moving it out to other parts of the house. Then I got a phone call. One to break your heart for sure. A friend of mine just lost someone really close and she asked me if I could make a paper rose for her casket. Apparently her friend really loved the song "Paper Roses". What could I say but yes, of course. I wanted to do something nice and I tried with the card stock and while they came out lovely they were just not big enough to suit me. So I turned to my roots, Tissue paper flowers and this is what I came up with -
It's been quite awhile since I made something like this but I still have the knack. I even showed it to my DH and it passed the acid test. He was impressed. (and believe me that's not an easy thing to do). So I spent the better part of the afternoon doing this rose but it is for a worthwhile cause. I am honoured.
Check back tomorrow for a new card using "The Nicest Things"
