Crafty!

I don't think I posted this here, but occasionally, I craft.

This was for my cousin's 60th birthday, way at the beginning of the year. I liked working on it. It was soothing, and a lot of fun to do. There's something deeply satisfying about gathering a bunch of fiddly, little things and making them look artistic. :D

Thank you! I used to do a lot of crafting but not so much anymore. This was great fun to do! :)

Man, so did i. I dyed cloth and made clothes, I made masks, I made these jackets with leather and lace and molded pauldrons on them, I made all kinds of stuff. I wish i still did *something*......

Oh wow--you were serious about the craft!

It's so weird--I have this vague, nostalgic yearning to do things, but never strong enough to really get out and do. I keep saying maybe someday, but I know I'm lying.

Man, fucking same. I hate it. I really did *like* doing that stuff. It was fun! We made costumes for pagan celebrations and for Ren Faires, we made all sorts of art, we just...*did* stuff. Hell, when our friend group got together, all we did was talk about books, and art, and make stuff, and eat, heh.

*sigh*

Good times.

That's super cute! I have absolutely zero craft skills, and am always impressed when people can make neat stuff look awesome.

Ah, thanks so much! I think, as a mom in the 90s, it was required by law to craft stuff. ;D

Ah, thank you! It came out so much better than I thought it would, and was so much fun to find the little bits and to make!

That is so freaking cool! What a wonderful keepsake for your friend!!!!
If I tried something like that I'd glue my fingers together, end up with a cog in my eye and have to go to the hospital for inhaling too many sparkles. ME: Not crafty AT. ALL. LOL
