I am Not Crafty

But I have been crafty of late. I have even purchased a glue gun!

First, I painted and glittered a mask, which I wore to the fabulous Muse Masquerade for the Carrack Modern last Friday. The masquerade was lovely, filled with glamorously dressed adults in the elegant galleries of the 21 C Hotel.

My dear friend Alex came down from Virginia to attend. The insanely cool craftivist Betsy Greer joined Rebecca, Alex and me for the sparkly night.

I made myself a wild flower crown.

And then matching flower bracelets.

And then I tried something completely outside of my comfort zone by making these Tinkerbell slippers for my friend Beth’s four-year-old’s Halloween costume. I used glitter and Modge Podge. Like a real crafter!

Before this, I was not a fan of glitter. Now I want to make a grown woman pair for myself.

 

This crafty thing is kind of fun.
