HWNSNBP made this for me. Can you guess what it is? It's not a bow maker or book end. It does have a specific purpose but someone might think of another one. It's relatively inexpensive to make (if, of course you don't need to have a new tool like, let's say a drill press in order to "do it the right way"). But then again, it was a Christmas present - let's just hope this isn't the only thing it gets used for. At this point I don't need multiples of it, but one can never tell what the future will hold.
So while you're pondering the possibilities, let me share this sympathy card I made for a coworker who lost her dad. I did some shopping on my work table and found the embossed frame from Papaya Collage. I used Soft Suede as my card base and stamped the leaf image several times in an area the size of the frame opening I blocked off with post-it notes. Then I popped up the frame and added the sentiment from Thanks for Caring. The inside held one of the other sentiments from the same set.
I've been searching for a few things this week and as I am going through my "stuff" I am trying to make a dent in what has accumulated. Some of it will be trash but I hope to make more of it into treasure and find a good purpose for it.
Well, did you guess or did you scroll down first to see? Ta-da! It's a washi tape holder. I had shown HWNSNBP a picture of one that I found on the internet and gave him one of those "you could make something like this, right?" prompts and.................several months later.................here it is.
He's working on another prompted project - a wooden doormat in two shades of blue - and it's almost finished. I'll share it soon, I hope.
