I have been trying to be good about my crafty time management, but ohgosh did I push it to the limit today!
My daughter's last after-school art class was this afternoon. She has been participating in this program for the past three years, but next year she will be attending a different school so she won't have this program available. We both want to cry about that. This teacher is amazing! She is a true artist to the core - complete with that flowy, artsy personality. (I wish I had better words to describe that, lol!)
I wanted to make a thank you gift to give her after class today. I started picking out papers last week and figured I'd cut and glue this weekend. But one thing after another happened and time got away from me, sooo....here I was this morning, left with 4 hours today to create. YIKES! But I didn't freak out, I just took it one gluey piece at a time.
This is a bigger project than I was expecting. It is from the SVGcuts Spring Blossoms SVG Kit. I didn't have any pastel or springy floral papers that jumped out at me, so I decided on Graphic 45's Couture collection. I LOVE the deep teal and orange-reds with the glittery gold and black.
The curvy roof was a little tricky but I did manage to make it work. With a half hour to go I still wasn't sure I could finish, but somehow I did! I even managed a quick minute to take a couple pics. Then as I was heading for the door I noticed that I forgot some trim pieces! Eeeek! I ran back in, glued them on in a flash and took another quick pic. No time to wrap it so I just popped it in a build-a-bear bag (really classy, eh?) and flew.
Have you ever cut a deadline THAT close before? No time to double check anything, no time to tweak and tinker and embellish, no chance to sit with a big goofy grin on your face as you admire your hard work (everyone does that don't they?). But in the end I got it done, and she loved it, so that is what counts :)
Thanks for visiting!
