My "inner clock" is a bit off this morning...my usual schedule is working all day Monday, school Monday evening, and working Tuesday evening--leaving Tuesday morning open for sleeping in past 7 o'clock, chores, and errands. Mostly I just putter around the house on Tuesday mornings. Well--I worked yesterday morning, it really threw off my sense of "well-being" (as tenuous as that is sometimes!!). Things just haven't been the same since the time change a few weeks ago.
My daughter will be celebrating her 21st birthday in May, and since I'm "crafty mom" and not "big bucks mom" I've been trying to come up with something special to commemorate this big birthday. I've had the urge to make a crown for her...a fun way to mark the big 21. For the past several months, I've toyed with this idea...and finally ordered the book last week. What a fun book! There are so many great crowns (and crown-makers) featured in this publication. I've narrowed my choices to 2--so I will be accumulating crown-making ephemera in the next few weeks.
The painting pictured under the book above is one my daughter's boyfriend (the art major) did of her---I call it Fairy of the Ginkos. See more of his art here.
