Space Bugs and Pipe Cleaner Dolls! Oh my!

Work has been keeping me busy, in the most wonderful of ways.

Instead of caterpillars, I ended up making Space Bugs for our "Brain Teaser Tuesday" post a couple days ago. This is the brain teaser -

I'll post the solution at the very bottom of this entry, just in case you want to tease your brain. :)

I am dying to get started on the Salley Mavor books and making Felt Wee Folk, but I haven't had time yet.

Last night, however, I was feeling SO crafty I just had to make SOMETHING! I had the pipe cleaners out, and so these two happened.

They aren't as elegant or beautiful as Salley's dolls, but they do make me smile. And I went to bed feeling like I'd done something creative. :)

Have you ever felt that way? Too tired or just without enough time to make something elaborate and amazing, but you still wanted to create something?

Well, if you've got that feeling and pipe cleaners and some beads, go here - Easy Pipe Cleaner Dolls. It worked for me. :)

So what do YOU work on when you feel that way?

I have some crafty supplies for the Felt Wee Folk coming from A Child's Dream and I can't wait. Hopefully I'll have some super cute (slightly more detailed) pipe cleaner dolls to show you soon!

And I'm working on books again. I can't stand it. I found these great vintage titles and I just can't seem to let book making go. So we'll see where that goes, but I definitely need more in my library. 

Anyway... hope you're having a wonderful day out there in blogland! And here's the answer to that Brain Teaser...

Did you get it right? :)

Bye for now!

P.S. I haven't forgotten about Thurber and his Thursdays - I've lost him. I have no idea where that cat wandered off this time! Darn cat! But I'm sure he'll be back. Hopefully around a Thursday. :)
