Yes, I know abandoned you and the kids, left you to recreate useful items from old items all by yourself. I got in Country Living and got a big head. Then it all came crashing down. The late night craft parties, the addiction to wood glue huffing, the prolonged lapse of creative inspiration, gone, all gone.
I feel much better now. And I am back to creating, a little paper, some wood, even a little metal.
My current kick is printing old vintage illustrations on pages from a general store ledger, they look like this:
And they are available in my new etsy shop CHRISTOPHER'S RARE PAPER
I also recently created a cafe sidewalk sign out of a broken, folding wooden chair, I will post a picture of that soon. I've been painting vintage looking signs on old found boards, Vintage Junky is selling them locally in her antique store booths. I've got a lot more in the works, but I've also started a backyard garden with tomatoes, cucumbers, green beans and lots of herbs, so we will just have to see which one takes up my free time.
