I can't believe it... it still doesn't seem real, I don't know whether to laugh or cry, I couldn't sleep last night, so many thoughts of the year past and the new year to come racing thru my mind.
I wasn't sure what to put up for my final craft, I would love to show you all my wedding dress as this is certainly my most extravagant creation to date... but alas I cannot, it would spoil the surprise of the big day (in 28 short sleeps to come).
So my thoughts returned to a fitting final Hurrah! I decided that this "Craft Queen" really deserves a "Craft Crown"... so here goes...
My initial sketch is slightly wanting...
I know what your thinking... this is going to end up like a hungry jacks happy meal crown (but have faith my craft friends! I am going to pull this off!)
Returning to the "industrial strength" craft I decided to use some left over high gloss furniture paint and 3 layers of cardboard.
bring on the useful box/boxes
the miniature cards are from one of the mini match-box collections from day 361
with all the hairspray and varnish on the shoes from yesterday's project and the furniture paint from today's I better hope nobody lights a sparkler or cigarette near my outfit otherwise my outfit may become a live firecracker!
This is not goodbye forever, just for now. This Craft Queen needs a well deserved "craft sabbatical"
although I will certainly be kept busy with wedding prep all of january! and I promise to update the blog to share with you all my wedding dress extravaganza design post wedding date.
