K, so there were no bells ringing really. More accurately, the title should read, "Every time there is a big fatty snow storm and the roads get really bad so Cassandra stays home from her day job and gets to live her dream of running her own business for a day where all she's required to do is sew and craft (and maybe clean the house a little), Clarence gets his wings". But, see? That's really just way too long.
So on Tuesday, I did get to live my dream for a day. I got up bright and early and got right to work. I pretended (grownups are still allowed their pretending from time to time, right?) that I was a stay-at-home Me. And I ran my day accordingly. Which was sooooo very nice. Because, honestly, it's hard working a full time day job and then coming home and having to put your all into what you really love - your own work. Some(most)days I just feel too drained. And uncreative. And blah. And I hate that. (Any other crafters still requiring dayjobs have any helpful input on this subject?)
So having a day all to myself to really see what it'd feel like - was bliss. I felt charged! I was ready! I had so many ideas! What's that, Clarence? You say it's about darn time you got yourself some wings already?! I couldn't agree more.
So I whipped out my trusty old sewing machine (b/c although I really prefer handstitching, I couldn't figure out a quality way to handstitch a few of the steps that he needed) and got crackin. And yes that's the owner's manual. My machine and I....we're just not that close. I wish we were. Hopefully one day we will be. But we're not there yet.
And spent a few hours on getting these babies just right.
Oh! And a little while ago, Clarence got a beak. I don't think I've shared that with you yet. What do you think?!
I'm digging it. Clarence is turning out to be one fly fella.
