The Beginning of a Project

Not quite ready to do the work but the planning is going well. Energy is returning so I did a paper plan of something light but fun for a shelf decoration. Could also be a wall decoration. Integrated bits and pieces.

I sketched out a plan on a birthday envelope.

Collected the supplies. Took photos (no tripod this time). Made PicMonkey collages. Planned how to tackle each little project inside the big project.

Used a few thrifted bits and pieces; shutter, shells, sealer, large clip.

Pulled out supplies that I think I may use.
Collected favorite things.

  2. Well, I think you've probably peeked everyone's curiosity about this! I usually plan & sketch things first, too, from album pages & cards to some decorating projects. It's all just part of the fun, huh?

  3. Looks interesting ... just can guess at what you are planning to make. Anxious to see. So glad that you feel like doing something creative. Stay positive, keep working, know that a lot of bloggers out here are thinking of you and have you on our prayer list.
