Hey there friends,
I would like to offer a massive ‘huzzayah and hurraya!’ to my parentals for their swift exeunt of me from house, to backyard, to the classy garage/studio space i am currently occupying. Whilst I am still eagerly awaiting the construction of furniture and some electricity, the space is proving delightful for work purposes. I learnt to make an elastic waisted skirt tonight. How terrific – I don’t think such things could have occurred in my backyard…unless i was seeking to make an elastic waisted grass skirt…but I’m not hawaiian, so I probs wouldn’t. God, I’m funny.
But despite my newfound spacial glory, the torrential rain that has been occurring this week has driven the surrounding insect life to seek refuge in my cave of wonders. Whilst I try to embrace most living creatures, i believe that there is no place in our world for things that look tiny poos with too many legs. So naturally, I lined my garage with mortein, and continued on with my work.
Since doing this I have noticed that a few cockroaches and some other creepy friends, have been sent to the Baby Jesus. Whilst I am glad that they have past on, I feel that their deaths may have contributed to the creation of a slight pong…a pong that smells distinctly like wee. Whilst it could just be a musty rain smell, I fear that I have flooded my new space with the scent of death – and am obviously a little concerned. I’m considering a genteel, well perfumed exorcism.
But regardless! The real reason I started this post was to share with you all that I have discovered how to make pom poms. I want to show you all so you too can become crazy craft people. I found this clip on youtube and am, on a scale of 1 to pom pom, pretty excited about it. Have a lookie!!
Now don’t worry guys, I am totally ‘ON’ the whole whiffy garage thing. Airing it out and seeing to the introduction of air-fresheners, I am hoping that soon my crafty abode will smell like a daffodils armpit.
