Craft Dice

Sometimes I get in a craft slump, does this ever happen to you? If it doesn't, I'm totally jeally!

So, in the attempt to help inspire me to craft, and to step outside my comfort zone by creating CRAFT DICE!

Wha-whaaaat? you ask. and then you think: BRILLANT! It's kind of like Greeting Card Bingo. Well, I went to a craft store and picked up some wooden blocks. I decided to create two dice. One with craft goals that I have: work on project life, my memory dex, do wall art, etc. And the other dice (and I have two blank ones to add more) to decide mediums. I thought using mediums that I want to practice and, also, ones I am not using very well right now (Ahem, quilling).

I used a 1.5 inch hole punch and then drew pictures with multi-liners and copic markers to color them.

Here's what I made:

Originally I painted the wooden dice white. I disliked that. Blech.

Painted them gold. I LOVE GOLD. I should have accounted for smudges, but guess what,
 I am NOT a perfectionist and I don't mind. :)
two other (blank) dice, the craft dice, punch and paper :)

I thought this would also be really fun for Periscope and YouTube videos :)

Craft Haul 2

Sorry no updates lately

My depression has gotten pretty bad. But I have had a good couple of days this past week. I find that doing stuff I used to enjoy really helps. Here's what I've done lately:

LEGO Pixar's Wall-E. I love this adorable guy, I hope that you will be seeing more of him, via my YouTube videos (oops, I wanted to announce that differently, oh well. It's true. I am going to be doing craft videos!)

I made a happy birthday for my friend, Mary. Her favorite colors are purple and green (which I did NOT know when I made this). I wanted to go with a Rupunzle/Tangled theme, as Tangled is my FAVORITE and Mary is my favorite!

(other side:  But you are my new dream.)
