Arts-N-Crafts-N-StuffPosted: July 12, 2012
I am, believe it or not, a perfectionist.
The paralyzed kind that jjiraffe mentioned last week.
I want to start so many projects, I get so many ideas, for art, for writing, for organization, for redecoration, and while I do manage to complete some of them, I start and abandon many, and fail to start even more than that. Although, thinking about it, I probably have hundreds of pages of notes and lists, so I guess I start more than I think, if the planning stage counts.
I don’t know how many times Ian has come home to something new, like alphabetized DVDS, a reorganized kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, or Abby’s room, or stacks of books all over because I got a bright idea.
Those are the visible projects. Most of the art and writing never see the light of day until I’m satisfied with the results.
But we’ve had these boxes of corks, see. Ian’s restaurant is renowned for their wine selection, and he brought some corks home a while back. Every now and then I start itching to do something with them. I’d love to do the baseboard thing, but most of our baseboards are hidden behind bookcases, so meh, what’s the point? I’ll do it when we buy a bigger house.
Today I found a how-to for a wine cork bathmat. Check it out, it’s awesome. This thing is getting made. I cannot wait!!
I finally sorted my frames as well, and even put this little guy that I painted about 20 years ago in a frame!
I’m also looking for a theme to make some art cards. Maybe I’ll just go to my dictionary.com app and shake for random words and see how that works out. Any suggestions?
