Living in the land of snow – I’m thinking about an ornament like Martha’s snowball for the Holiday Ornament Swap. Maybe adding some color – we have lots of color on our tree. With all the string, glue and glitter I think Baby Girl might even be interested in helping.
i think i’m going to participate in two holiday craft shows – the same weekend, with no current inventory – so with all the crafting about to happen i joined cake + pie’s ornament swap (also the same weekend). this might mean the end to any handmade gifts (maybe they’ll be birthday socks this year).
…admittedly I’ve been crafting less as I’ve been learning HTML and web design more. I’ve really enjoyed learning something new – and a new way to use color and my sense of design. Since I have no intention of going back to school for this I’m using every resource I can to learn. Digg featured a great article from Mark Boulton last week on designing with color that I think is useful across many media. And the more I’ve read Mark’s blog the more amazing design articles I find. He is an excellent designer, a concise writer and good teacher.
