I haven't worked on many projects lately, but here's one I'm particularly excited about!
For as long as I can remember, Grandma has loved owls. It's always been her favorite bird...or at least I have thought it has... maybe it hasn't...either way, she always likes when I show her owl things.
A while ago, I went to Color Me Mine with Rich. I made an adorable little owl mug. Less than a week after bringing it home, I left it in the fridge and one of the kids accidentally knocked it out...causing it to break on the kitchen floor. I was pretty disappointed, but it's just a cup. Life goes on. Grandma, however, really liked the cup, so she saved the pieces and meticulously glued it back together:
|After it was already glued back together.|
She did a really good job if you ask me. You can barely see here that it was glued back together. There are a lot of tiny holes, so it won't ever hold liquid again, but it looks nice still.
I'm going to end up using it as a nice little pen holder or something.
Anyway, back to my explanation.
Grandma loves owls, so much so that she repaired my mug because it was cute. See this shelf? I was going to just stick it on there, but there isn't room. See the wall? See all the eclectic wall decorations? See all of the space on the wall?
I picked out an image for an owl. I picked out a tree design to put the owl in. I even picked out a cute little phrase to put around it. I'm going to start it today, and see how quickly I can get it done.
I anticipate it take a while, because I'm making the pattern up out of my own imagination...I don't have a pattern or design chart. But it'll be worth it. I want her to know that "Owl always love [her]".
Sorry this post was so weirdly written and really dull. I'm just very stoked for this project. I'll post an update soon about how it's going.
