    Knitted slippers for my niece and decided they needed to be more "Christmasy" so I ordered needled felting stuff and added dots....

    That led to ordering more stuff and giving 3D needle felting a go....made animals, faces, and finally these fairies....

    While looking online for fairy ideas I came across Fairy Houses...a hundred newspaper strips, a gallon of starch and some floral wire later I have these houses...

    Thinking that paper machet might be a cool way to make a giant snowman my mind sipped off on a Christmas tangent that resulted in the giant bulb and Ball....


    Guys...this started with polka dots on slippers....I think I may need help...

    I must be a kindred spirit, I'll start something and then off I go onto another project. At least you complete yours, I have many unfinished projects!! You are very creative and I love what you've done!! I'm sure the receiver of the slippers will surely enjoy them as I have a pair and they're toasty!!

    They have drugs for your disorder you know?? LOL I love all the projects you did. I have days like this that just keep running off into different directions resulting in somethings I never thought I needed to do. Great job!!

    Wow - you are incredibly talented. I can relate - my ADD is flaring up big time and I'm having to try not to start too many at the moment.

    Cheers, K

    I'll help you. To my mind, this sounds like a logical progression.

    Now what you need is a magic mushroom or two, then a silver star that has a sparkling rose growing from it's middle. And then....

    Love your fairies, fairy houses and ornaments. You are obviously quite talented, and I know your niece will be so thrilled to have them.

    You guys are so nice. I live in the middle of nowhere and often feel like I operate in a "craft vacuum". When you try something, or in my case 100 new things it is hard to know if the end result is just crap or has any merit. My Husband always says that he likes my projects, but like the Fairy houses he doesn't see their purpose...frankly he is right on that one...I have no idea what to do with those houses. Does anyone have any ideas on that?

    Got an Elf that I had been thinking about put together last night, excited to see him come together...

    Thanks again!

    **On the meds issue-ADD runs in my family-if I start leaving a trail of half finished projects in my wake I might have to consider getting back on the meds!
