I'm going to show you what I got from Heather at DollarStoreCrafts. She sent ten mystery envelopes to ten people like me: admirers of her genius, crafty, sillyserious blog about converting stuff that costs a buck into stuff that makes you go "ooh!" We are legion. We are a hardy band of kooks - lovers of thrift shops, dollar stores, yard sales and flea markets. We are not cheapskates. No. We are treasure hunters!
My mission - and I have chosen to accept it - is to find something in this random collection of ephemera that inspires a project. She asks us to first comment on our impression of the items, then create an interesting...thing...of some sort, and write up a little tutorial on how we did it.
Here is my haul:
First impression: cool colors. (Designing jewelry, I'm always playing with, combining, recombining color.) I squint my eyes and get a dusty-rose kind of feel. Pink, beige, earthy browns...pretty!
Immediate second impression: I can't possibly do just one project. My brain is suddenly a pinball machine, with at least four ideas bink-bonking around in my head.
So I've decided to see how many things I can come up with from Heather's gift. I hereby challenge myself to find ten projects. At least ten!
I bet you a dollar I can do it.
