“They” say a change is as good as a rest, so I took a much-needed break from writing to fill up my creative soul.
For the last couple of weeks, I’ve been working on different types of crafts. My grandchildren look at Pinterest with their mother and they send me Pins they would like Nana to make. Below are the results of two I recently received. The large Unicorn and the large “Batman” like figures. They are 18 inches tall.
There is also a local fundraiser for a children’s camp starting in the next couple of weeks and I thought why not make them a couple of superheroes to sell tickets on. So, I took a pattern I had for a small unicorn and I transformed it into a “Batman” like figure and a “Wonder Woman” like figure. The two for the charity are 11 inches tall. Unfortunately, once my granddaughter saw the “Wonder Woman” like figure she asked me to make her one. I’m happy to report it is almost done. I’ve also come up with other ideas to expand on my creative side. Some may be to sell at craft markets, or at least I’ll have some items made for gifts.
I had fun and using the creative side of my brain to work out designing these dolls has also refilled my writing well. I think I may be ready to head back to the writing cave for a bit.
It’s true, a change is as good as a rest. I can truly attest to that now…
