crown

Do you ever start to make something, and then
end up making something completely different
from what you had originally envisioned?



When I first read the Random Readhead "crown" challenge
at Gingersnap Creations, I was delighted at the prospect
of using one of my favorite new stamps--you can see it on
Titania, Queen of the Fairies.



But then, the appeal of making a "real" crown was
just too strong, so I got out my big roll of wire.
Really, I intended to make a traditional kind of
crown, you know, with triangle-points at the top,
tipped with jewels, but that didn't happen AT ALL.



Then, I was blog snooping, ahem, visiting, some
of the inspiring Ginger blogs, and found the
Simon Says Stamp and Show some metal challenge.

So there you go.

Finished it up last night, and wore it until
it was time for bed . . .

Oh yes indeed I wore it! It's a pretty great feeling, to wear a crown around, let me tell you . . . I'm thinking of wearing it to the grocery store, just to see what happens!

Not yet, but I did wear it around the house when my kids' friends were there . . . they're all so used to me, though, no big reactions. It went like this:

"Nice crown. You make it?"

"Yes."

"Is it on your blog thing?"

"Yes."

That was it. I'm thinking it would definitely get more reaction at the grocery, you know? ;)

that conversation is quite amusing!

Maggie Ann said...

I love your crown! I can imagine how special you felt wearing it....I'm thinking...is this to hard for me to try?

ANGIE said...

Hi Trisha. Yes, I often start on something and wind up making something different from it! I love your sweet crown. So very pretty and unique.

Thank you for responding to my ATC question. It really helps to get advice from the "pros." You're totally right: I'm already addicted.
