January 30, 2012

Life got in the way today.

I was thinking about how I could construct Bridal Bouquets. I even found some promising holders to construct them on. I thought I could relax in the tub and create. But after the tub was full, my DD needed me to hold the fussy baby for a bit. By the time I got in the tub the water was lukewarm. Still wanting to relax and meditate, I tried to light my favorite Nag Champa candle which got wet during the baby's bath and wouldn't light. Never mind, I lit the lilac candle. 

I tried to add a little hot water, but after the laundry, and 2 previous baths there was none left, so I tried to relax and wash up in the warm water and the lilac candle scent. Then I heard a thud and a scream in the kitchen. I hopped out of the tub and ran to see what happened. My daughter fell trying to climb on a chair reaching in the cupboards. Not serious but my bath meditation mood was shot.

Fussy babies aren't great for creativity, but I did manage to do some straightening up of our recycles and found some nice 2 liter bottles to use for the new bangle bracelets. I cut them to size removed the labels and cleaned the plastic well. Bug side panels cut down to 1/2” strips that I will wrap with my eco friendly bamboo/wool yarn. I love that I can make such cute bracelets from soda bottles.

I did manage to list a few items and take a few pictures of the new bracelets. I made a green one and later I made an Ivory one. I'll get more pictures and have my daughter model them too. I really need to update my website with the new product. I will have a pick your own flower bracelet too. I still have to design the longer necklace and my bouquets. But even with the road blocks, today was a good day.
