Have you ever sat down to do a project and have everything go wrong pretty much from the start?Well, that happened to me. I purchased floral stems to use in a holiday centerpiece I wanted to make. I already had the basket-type thing I wanted to use. That was about all that went right.
First, I didn’t try to work in the Creative Cave because it was too cold. I decided to work at my dining room table. I put a towel down to protect the table from scratches as well as from the glitter on some of the pieces.
As I gathered my supplies I realized I didn’t have any foam-type stuff to put in the bottom. I thought I had saved everything I had used in the past, but so far I can’t find any of it. In my search I came across a foam square I use when I make paper beads. Maybe things were looking up.
Try as I might I couldn’t get any of my ideas for attaching the foam to the basket to work. I tried glue, then two-sided tape.
I decided to move past attaching the foam and try to get some of the decorations into place. That is when I realized I didn’t have enough floral pieces for my liking. I tried filling in spaces with the ornaments I used in it last year. That didn’t work either.
Combine all of this with my lovable triplet hurricanes wanting to help (the cats) and the sneezing fit I found myself in and there wasn’t any way I was going to be successful. I gathered it all up, took it back to the Creative Cave and then made myself comfortable on the couch with my iPad and some rounds of Candy Crush Saga.
I may periodically complain about my kitties but today I want to express how thankful I am for them. They all are rescues. The three indoor cats are shelter rescues and the two outdoor cats I have are feral rescues. I actually can’t imagine how empty and boring my house would be without them.
