I was wandering through the aisles of the craft store last week when I suddenly had the realization that perhaps I need my friends to stage an intervention.
How else to break the habit that had me in search of fake snow, certain kinds of holiday adornments, and the need to buy refills for my glue gun?
Because YES, the holidays are bearing down on us like a tank.
And YES, I feel the need to CREATE.
And YES, my craft table currently looks like some sort of holiday explosion has occurred.
And, because a friend has asked, here’s a photo of something related I’ve been working on:
I knew I was probably in trouble when I found myself googling photos to see how I could inject the most realism into my fantasy holiday village. What would be the appropriate colors for a fire station? Should I put together a teeny fire truck with a Dalmatian in the back and a wreath on the grill?
That was followed by the making of lists of supplies needed to create a teeny town square, a teeny Christmas tree lot, a teeny mountain with teeny skiers, and so many other teeny tiny scenes. I can fill Jenworld with a massive teeny village. Bwa ha ha ha ha ha!
It’s not like I don’t have things to do. Yet, I find myself focusing on tiny details that no one is going to notice or care about. Oy.
So, who’s going to organize an intervention and pry the glue gun out of my hand? Alternately, who’s going to join me in the madness?
