Sometimes I think Marla wants to watch the world burn. If you’re wondering, Marla is my cat and the local cat craft assistance in these here parts of the internet. I only fairly recently got my pretty kitty back from my parents who were watching her after for me the the weird in between times of selling a house and moving a long distance away. And I was so excited to have my gal back and I still am so pleased to have her here with me! But I had forgotten what it was like to have kitty paws all in everything.
To be honest I LOVE when she wants to get in the lightbox and help me. Cats are naturally curious creatures and as long as I’m not using anything that would hurt them, I’ll always welcome the cats inside to have a closer peek at what I’m up to. It makes them happy and I figure as indoor cats their world is tiny. I mean think about it, they have one house that is their entire world. And we actually have a few spaces she can’t go into, like Rob’s studio where his oil paintings would be so furry if animals could get in there.
But I’ve gotten sidetracked and I started this diatribe simply because as I was uploading pics for this post mark stole 2 of my breakfast cherries and then flung my writing pen into the window so hard I found myself gritting my teeth all like “oh, freaking no!”
What I meant to come in here and tell you is that I have a fantastic little tutorial over at Mom Spark. We’re kind of mixing up things and I’m getting to my simpler crafting skills and scratching my more bohemian crafting itches. And I’m in love with it. This week I shared how to DIY copper tubing from the hardware store into a Himmeli style piece of art. I have to tell you, I’m HOOKED and I do believe there will be more of this style of projects shared and I’m really pretty excited about it. The end result is so simple and so pretty. It works perfectly on my bookcase in front of one of Rob’s paintings. I hope you’ll head over to Mom Spark to check out how to make your own DIY Himmeli style geometric copper sculpture!
