Make.

Standard

December 6 ā€“ Make.

What was the last thing you made? What materials did you use? Is there something you want to make, but you need to clear some time for it?

This post is distressing to me! I am realizing as I think about it, that it’s been a month since I really made anything!
I am *getting ready* to make some things this week, but the last things I made were for Dia de los Muertos!

Between my birthday (October 30th) and the end of Dia de los Muertos (November 2nd) I made a few dozen sugar skulls and paper flowers.

My living room was a beautiful mess of granulated sugar, meringue powder clouds, drips of food coloring paste, sticky plastic skull molds, sequins, tangled floral wire, and scraps of colorful tissue paper.
