A Break from Insanity

on April 18, 2012

First off, kudos to WordPress for having an iPhone app with the ability to update my blog while in bed :o)

Secondly, I’m so thankful tonight for the ability to come home from work and not have to think about anything! This past Friday night, the hubby came home from work with a fever, aka the same crud I’ve been fighting with for the last 2 weeks. I’ve pretty much been running at full speed since then: taking care of/worrying about him (my mom implanted motherly instinct at a young age), cleaning up the house, trying to get myself better, and other miscellaneous extra house and work duties. I needed a break.

It was so wonderful to come home to a quiet and empty house that would continue to be that way for a few more hours. ::insert sigh of relief::

I started the night out with a need to mess with my silhouette cameo cutting machine. I have been messing with it on and off for a couple of months trying to get it to cut my rose templates out. Hail to the victor, because I got it figures out!

By the time I figured out the how to cut the flowers and the proper sizes for each of them, my hubby had returned home from work again, quickly finding his way to the couch next to me and dozing off immediately. The cutting on the machine didn’t even wake him. Since I know he needs to rest, I made the decision not to cut flowers out tonight, but rather go up to my studio in the attic to finish up my daisy treasure pots.

I started making these pots a few days ago when I really needed a break from all the circles for for my flower earrings. I really wanted to get some quilling done in my studio. Since most all of the equipment to make these pots is in my studio, it wasn’t a bad idea.

Tonight mostly consisted of shaping the pot bases and lids, sealing them, and gluing on petals.

They go nice with my sunflower treasure pots. I think I probably will put leaves on these pots as well.

One thing I do know for sure is that my mom will love them!
