Tales of Craftiness Past

As you may know, if you follow my other blog, I’ve been purging my house over the past few months. I’v found a lot of stuff, people. A lot of crafty stuff yet to be made and a fair amount of finished stuff, too. One thing leads to another, and I have uncovered a good deal of things from my wedding. For instance, I made the dress my daughter wore as flower girl. Man, that was forever ago, because Drama now wears that dress. Or at least, it fits her, LOL. I also found the unity candle that I redecorated to match the colors (now trashed), and the ring bearer pillow (saved in case one of the girls want it), and my dress. Well, both my wedding dresses, actually, both saved at Country’s request. (That really surprised me, since she is typically not one given to sentiment. At least on the outside :)).

I also found a stack of wedding invitations and wedding napkins. I’d been intending on making a shadow box thingie like the one Grandma and Papa had using those and that pillow for some 15 years. Guess that won’t be happening now, huh?

I think I’d still like to do a shadow box of some sort, just because I think they are neat to look at and would be fun to make, but I definitely need a different focus, ykwim? Perhaps…. well, I do have a lot of remembrances of Grandmother…. I could do that. I’m not sure I have enough flat stuff, though. And I think I passed up on all her costume jewelry that would have made for a cute display. But, I do have her watch and grand-dads, and some old pictures, and a couple of small knickknacks….. yeah, I think that’s do-able. And I think I just added another project to my someday list.
