Thrifty Thursday Number Three:
Being a ‘lady of leisure’ on a ‘shoestring budget’ is a funny combination. But the thing I really appreciate about it is that it really gets you using your imagination. I have always wanted to be that person who takes her camera everywhere, makes regular visits to op-shops, has enough time to read comics, enough time for crafting, enough time to shop at local markets and to make yummy meals, enough time to spend with family, enough time to actually maintain a blog and update it regularly, enough time for exercise, and enough time to draw. And now I do have enough time, and I am that kind of person! And oh my, it is great.
I know this point in my life is rather special, and it won’t last forever. My business plans with my sister are looming quite close, so I must remember to appreciate this time while I still have it.
I don’t know where you are reading from right now, but where I’m at in Adelaide, as I’ve said before, the weather has become rather brisk. So I thought I’d post this relatively ‘springy’ tutorial on making paper flowers. They are really super mega easy and quick to make, so you should have a try yourself, and let me know how you go!
Things you will need:
- Old comic books
- Masking tape
