Yesterday's Gather & Giggle brought out the Crafting Newbies... They were shy and tentative. Cries of "I'm not creative!" and "I don't know what to do!" were hushed as fingers got goopy, scissors snipped, and tape stretched. Like a proud mama, I present to you the gorgeous results. And these from The Virgin Crafters!
|This one is long -- about 15" -- ingeniously to be cut into 3 separate cards, and sent home to Hungary! (We are so international!) The 2030 is the town's zip code; the "H" is the town's code.|
|The cutest thank you note and complimentary envelope. The flowers were stenciled in with paint pens!|
|Pretty papers, washi tape, textured fiber, stamps, and paint pens. Her first time using them!|
|The "worst offender" of "I'm not creative!" -- hmm. Me thinks she doth protest too much.|
|My scratched out visual journaling from yesterday. It was hard concentrating: I wanted to watch and witness the therapeutic miracle of First Time Crafters unfurl.|
