I can never think of anything to post on Facebook.
I don’t throw birthday parties for myself.
In truth, I’m just not comfortable being the center of attention or calling attention to myself (you may be thinking to yourself “acting is an odd career choice for such a person” and you’d be right).
Anyway, blogging is kind of a challenge for me as well because it never feels right to just make a post that essentially shouts “hey, look at me!!! Look what i did!”
I mean, obviously, I get over that but my intention is always to share useful ideas.
My plan with the Use What You’ve Got Project was to present the stuff as tutorials or at least semi-tutorials.
But I was under a slightly self-imposed deadline to get new things to the CoOp 28 store.
So, welcome to a second LOOK AT ME!!! post.
The Mindful Nest store requested one of my super large Beach Signs
which left me with some oddly shaped scraps.
I thought “why not stick with what you know for the first project:” Letter cutting and gluing stuff to wood.
I’d previously made that smaller (meaning 12″ tall) version of my LA collage sign.
And I had all these postcards for my Etsy HOME signs.
Each letter is 11″ tall and the bases are made of scrap as well. The letters are attached with (leftover) dowels so they can be left on their base or removed and hung on the wall.
Now that particular wood pile is pretty depleted. Perhaps I should make smaller letters for smaller towns?
I promise that further entries in this series will be more useful.
