I enjoy spending my evenings perusing the pictures and ideas over at Pinterest. I find that after several hours I feel quite accomplished (even though I haven't done a single thing except use up electricity). I have a good many boards over there with a good many pins, and I decided I really need to start making some of those things I have pinned. I actually started over the summer when I took ideas from here and here, combining them to make my paper wreaths.
With winter and Christmas coming, I wanted to pull out my mad paper folding skillz and try my hand at some of the 3d snowflakes I had pinned. I have now made 11 of these in three different sizes,
and last night I spent the evening cutting, folding, gluing, and burning my fingers to make two of these.
I used "vintage" sheet music for the two I made last night. I showed the first one I finished to Mr. Chadwick, who's immediate response was, "Oooh, shaped notes!" which was followed by, "I like it!"
Now I can legitimately feel accomplished, and, who knows, I may settle in tonight (while we watch the Pats play the state final football game) and make a few more. I might even begin to ooze accomplishment (or maybe that's just the blister from the glue gun...).
