As I suspected, I was unable to keep up a daily, finished craft project all month. I did, however, work on some kind of project every single day, so I did make stuff; it just need to be finished.
Another painted birdhouse done on March 14.
This one, which I call 'Celestial House', took both March 15 & 16 from start to finish. There was a lot of drying time involved. I got that large circular pin somewhere in my travels. I snapped the pin back off it, and was saving it for a special project. This one is definitely not for sale. I also like that 3D Saturn charm and was saving that as well.
I really, truly cannot get enough of the celestial motif!
The weatherpeople got everyone all whipped up into a frenzy about a 'big storm' for March 21st, with around 8"-10". I woke up to this....it was barely snowing. And it was melted by late afternoon too. I am hoping this was the last gasp.
I'm a sucker for heat activated mugs.
I'm also a sucker for all things Harry Potter.
We went out to dinner w/ my stepson & his g/f for Russell's bday, then they came back to the house for his fave pineapple upside down bundt cake.
Decided to give casting resin another try. One thing I am learning, paper does not do well in it, despite all the photos I've seen of resin jewelry with pretty paper. I'm using what I thought was heavy paper but maybe it's not. I hope that they lighten up after the resin dries. I put some marbles in the mold on the right. Also beads and glitter.
Another ongoing project is this Create Your Own Calendar which I've been meaning to do for years.
I wasn't sure just how many years, till I came across this page at the back of the calendar. I'm going to guess I purchased it in 2006. So far I have all the pictures processed and mounted on 12 pages. I still have to put the day numbers for the year too. I have no stickers for it so it looks like I'll have to use a stencil. After that it will be a matter of filling in bits and bobs and birthdays.
I'm cranking away on this cross stitch. I've worked on it every day, for hours at a time, since about March 16 or 17. If I can keep up that pace, I should have it done by the weekend.
Kind of a crazy month....hoping that winter is over though. It wasn't near as bad as people were expecting and definitely the best one since 2012. Looking forward to spring and warmer weather!
