JOY OF DISCOVERY


So you finish the fabulous raspberry jam

and you love the jar

and cannot bring yourself to throw it away.


From the dishwasher it goes into the nest
and sits on the table

next to the bits

and baubles

you've collected like a magpie......



and in the middle of another project

you look at that lovely jelly jar
(of course, because you have AADD - Adult- Art -Distraction -Disorder)

and
decide that one of your little Paper Whimsy girls
(Image sheet 017)

that sprouted wings
some time ago,

needs a home.

Out come some snippets of silk you dyed
over the winter...

and pearls...

and stars...

and glitter...

Oh My!!

Rub on letters,

gauze,

silk ribbon,

and a glittered up white rose.......................



And your little faerie now has a fashionable place to reside.


I wrapped her all up and added it to the birthday girl's gift bag.


Yes I did.
