paper garland, berry light string, wire hanger, ribbon, paper clay doo dads.
Day 8, 25 days of creating
Yesterday, I pulled out a bag of holiday ornaments that grandma gave us before her move. I said, hmm. What can I do with these pretty lights? They're not long enough to put around the window. Then I thought, "a wreath"
And I remembered the garland, a nice soft natural color. And I bent the hanger into a wreath shape and wrapped it all up and tied it with a bow. I left it at that, until I realized later that I had some little paperclay things I'd been working on and hadn't done anything with.
If you look close, there's a bird, a set of wings, and four little pears. I figured, it could be the partridge in the pear tree.
I found it really hard to take a picture of, because the light is so gray and cloudy, and I can't take them out anyway, since it's already plugged in. I guess I could have unplugged it and set it on a tree... but you know it's kind of snowing, and I'm kind of lazy today.
Anyway, here's to another day, of creating, of the holidays, of living.
Remember to breathe deep and relax, amongst all the celebrating.
