Late bloomer

Picture 048

I stayed up waaaay past any hour any normal human should be awake torching blooms last night (this morning). Egad. I have to work tomorrow too.

Still have a lot on my mind. The interview is Monday. *prayers request…thanks*  Crafts seem to soothe and yet aggrevate this.

I have fantasies of making moola off my creative side someday. Those seem to be dancing in my head tonight. I even found myself reading blogs about starting businesses and blah…

For now I should focus on the interview Monday …or really getting some sleep before work.



Edited to add: I have had a few questions on how to make these babies. Now, I could make you a tutorial (love love love tutorials), but I have seen so many around blogs as is. It seems repetitive. So I am linking one instead. 🙂 However, this one shows coloring with markers. I did not do that obviously. I also don’t just hold my fabric with fingers. I use long tweezers that hold it tightly like making memories makes….cause I don’t trust I won’t singe the fingers. Oh and I take no legal responsibility to anything done while you use a lighter or attempt to torch blooms, okie dokie? So play at your own risk folks.


Here is a tutorial:

    good luck in the morning!

    These flowers are really cool! Are they just synthetic fabric cut into rounds and singed and then put together in layers?

    Ah!!! thanks for the tutorial- kinda how I pictured it going. Like melting the edges of poly ribbon to keep it from fraying. VERY cool! I think I might try to make some of these for a flower pot card. 🙂
