What do you like to do to relax? Some people like to golf, some people like to fish, some people like to spend all their money shopping. I like to make things.
I told myself I was going to carve out more time for creativity this summer, but my summer is already running away without me. Sigh… Part of the problem is that I also made a commitment to sleep. I don’t get nearly as much done when I actually go to sleep at night. Sleep makes me feel great, but it doesn’t do much for my overloaded to-do list. So what can a girl do when there’s…er…TOO MUCH to do? I could have been all productive and tackled that to-do list, but I decided to make a paper airplane with my to-do list and create another tea-tray instead.
It felt good.
And now I get to look at this every day:
You should know that I liked peacocks before peacocks were cool. Maybe one day I’ll even get myself a real one….. Now that would be cool….
If you want to know how I made this lovely little tea tray, I made a tutorial for my last tea tray. I made this one the same way. I even used the same site for my graphics, because when you find a good thing, why change? The only thing I did differently was these awesome handles:
I just grabbed a piece of twine, tied it on the handle and wrapped it tightly. Then I knotted the other end. Easy. I really like the effect, don’t you?
Summer is going to be good…
Have a great day!
