Day 11 - Learning New Crafts
I am a creature of habit, and the crafts i make fall into this category as well. I wanted to broaden my craft skills and adventures this year, so i spent some time looking through my Readymade magazines and book for gift inspirations.
My sister is also very crafty, and while we share some craft mediums, she also does amazing work with cross-stitch and resin jewellry. So, since she's so creative, i wanted to make her something that stepped out of my craft realm.
I decided on a great lace bowl from the Readymade book. I had to use epoxy to make a mould, and it was a fun project that included rubber gloves - something that typically is not in my repertoire. This was a good challenge, and while it required a few steps and improvization, i'm happy with how it turned out. Sis was a bit confused at first what it was for, but after i explained it was a bowl with separate holes, we got on a roll that it could be for fruit, muffins, and of course, cupcakes!
