it popped in my head and I made it!
I had every intention of working on several projects to distract me while my daughter, her husband and son were in India for a few weeks. Wouldn't you know that I couldn't think of a blessed thing to do while they were gone. Even painting my front door was technically before they even left and I thought that would be the catalyst for all other plans.
Well, today the three of them finally arrived safe and sound,back to their homes in Florida and I felt like my brain could relax. Talking on the phone with Christina and my grandson Kavi really made me happy and set my mind at ease today. So...today is when a creative idea popped in my head! I was thinking how I wished I had something new to put over the fireplace in the dining room and also wishing I could make a silhouette of a deer. I already had a poster board covered in orange burlap and also some plain burlap, so looking at a key holder with a deer on it for guidance, I sketched on to the material with a pencil and then cut it out. I traced it on brown paper to make a template for any future projects with different fabrics. I glued the silhouette onto the orange burlap and placed it over the mantle and I am very happy with how it turned out for absolutely free and taking very little time!
I guess I need my family on the same continent with me to truly be relaxed enough to be creative!
