I believe in it. Therapy by crafting, that is. It works for me. And since I needed some therapy today to recover from yesterday, that's what I did.
I got these great fancy little measuring spoons from my mother for Christmas. I was so excited to bring them home and hang them in my kitchen just like my mother has hers. The only problem was that she has hers hanging from one of the knobs on her cabinet - and I don't have knobs on my cabinets. So I thought maybe I'd just hang them on the wall just above the backsplash. But they looked very lonely and random. So I thought I'd frame them. But they didn't seem quite artsy enough to be in a frame all by themselves. Then I thought of the scripture in Mathew about measuring, and the final idea was born. Of course, this all happened in January and it's now mid-February. And that, my friends, is how I came to be doing this today.
A little scrapbook paper, a frame stolen from something else, some wire, and wa-la!
Aren't the little birds just adorable? My neighbor actually brought me that piece of paper one day because she knew what my Chic Made logo was and thought of me when she saw the birds. Isn't that sweet? And then the measuring cups have little bird houses and birds on them too. Perfect!
