I did it!

This day had "getting nothing productive done" written all over it. Starting with getting up at 5a.m. to watch the wedding. That was a no-brainer for me. I know I could have seen it 1000 times after but only once live. I have a thing about doing things on the day or at the time when it is most significant. I like to celebrate my birthday on my birthday. If there is a scheduling problem, then beforehand will do but no after the fact. It's over after the specific time. Not to say I don't accept birthday gifts that come late but there's not likely to be a party. A silly quirk.
So, after watching all the festivities and a nap, I hadn't scheduled anything else for the day and I was getting that bad feeling of uselessness. Alas, there is always the "bomb" room, my studio, where I can head and at the very least clean and organize. But I remembered that I had been procrastinating about learning how to make my own paper flowers. I've spent a lot of money buying the flowers I use in my art from others by mail. I purchased a machine several months ago which I had taken out of the box and tried once a couple of weeks ago. It was just too easy to purchase them at reasonable prices. Okay, so today I made myself make two different kinds of flowers; this is the second one which means it came out much better than the first. I've watched several tutorials on you tube, studying and doing my homework. On the first one, of course, I didn't do it as they said...dur...that's why it didn't come out as well. So this is just the first of many of my upcoming tries. And it's kind of on the tail end of the rage but maybe not. Cutting edge has not been that good to me so we'll see what happens. Thanks for stopping in!
