Last thing I made was a person

I’m feeling the need for a little creative project. I’ve been in survival mode – feed the family and myself, make sure all are alive at the end of the day and have clean clothes to wear the next, work, sleep if possible, shower if the gods are looking favourably upon me. That’s it. Maybe a little bit of housekeeping but not enough for it to be a category (ick!)…

But I feel like making something just for the H E Double Hockey Stick (hell) of it. Who knows? It’s almost September. Maybe this can be my Christmas craft.

With this feeling in mind I scoured Pinterest, and this tutorial stood out for me.

I think they’re stunning. And, in addition to possibly be the perfect thing to wrap up under the tree, one would make a fine addition to the work-in-progress nursery.

So I’ve now been searching for the right thing to say on there.

I’m considering:

i carry your heart with me from the ee cummings poem

This too shall pass – words of wisdom from my Dad

These are the days of miracle and wonder – paul simon

The world may be broken but hope is not crazy. – John Green (long but perhaps worth it).

Anyway, I’m hoping to gather some supplies, settle on a quote and maybe even get started this weekend.

Let me know what you’d want on a sign. I could use the inspiration.
