My retro gifting post, is not intended as a “how to” post, but rather an introduction to possibilities. Beading, and crafting in general is a pretty wide field, but we are all in it together, so let’s have some fun!
First, I would like to wish you a Merry Christmas, or Happy Holidays, or whatever else you celebrate! I know this has been a dismal year, but it’s almost over, and things will get better in 2021, so let’s get crafting!
First up on my retro gifting post are some of the simpler items.
Next, a little more complicated, but still doable.
Wood + paper + resin + a little drilling! I used to teach a workshop in how to make these.
Definitely more complicated, but I do love the results! Okay, not this year, but how about next?
How about a little more fibre? This time, a couple of 4″ X 4″ Stitch Meditations, from my 2019 series. I made 100 of them that year!
Mounted and framed, they would make great gifts!
How about printing, and framing one of your favourite photographs? I have about a million of them, but I always love anything with water, the sounds of silence, and mist! Skookum Lake, in Northern Ontario.
Now on to a few other things!
The end of my retro gifting post is here, but so is the end of 2020 (or will be soon)! I’m sad for the first, but not for the second.Things are looking up for 2021, but we still have a long ways to go! The holidays will look very different this year, and many will be sad, so don’t forget to reach out to your friends and families, because all we have is each other. A phone call, email, or text, can go a long way to help! So can a safe, porch drop off of holiday delights!
Keep safe, social distance, wear a mask, and wash your hands! We can do it, I know that we can!!
