Here's today's "Waiting for the A/C man to arrive" craft:
I think it turned out pretty darn cute, if I do say so myself. Especially considering the little guy is actually Halloween graphic wearing a Halloween hat. I cropped it off, added in a Patriotic hat from another image and added the flag onto the stick. The 4/4 card is from a 1939 "Flinch" card game. I've seen these card in other people's collages, but never knew exactly what they were until Sunday when I pulled a Flinch game out of my very own ebay stash. Who knew I had it all along! There are 10 sets of cards 1-15 for a total of 150 cards in all. I can create forever!!!!
I make the biggest mess when I do my crafting - dragging out everything in all the appropriate colors of buttons, rickrack, ribbon, papers and all my miscellaneous bits and bobs. The Bin "O Glitter makes an appearance and the various glues and glue guns get revved up. I am amazed that the junk, er, treasures that I have always loved and accumulated can turn into art! Old keys, scrabble tiles, flash cards, buttons - things that I think, "I'll use that someday" are suddenly being used!
The A/C people (all five of them) will be here Monday and Tuesday all the live long day, so there is no telling what I may crop, glitter and create! What's the next holiday?????? Halloween! Bring on the orange and black!
