However, after my Google Adwords debacle and my near bankrupt business after it, I pretty much lost all of my creative "mojo." I'd sit and try to make something, but nothing. I'd find tons of other junk to do so I didn't have time to create (I may have mentioned my recent complete reorganization of all of our paperwork). I even lamented to my mom who basically said "get over it."
Now, back to the letters. I'd try to work on them, then put them aside, work on them a little more and put them aside again. I totally wasn't "feeling" them at all. A few weeks ago, I even went so far as to put them away in a tote out of my sight to help alleviate my guilt that they were not getting listed.
I pulled them out today and something came to me. . .I was inspired by the vinyl wall art I finally applied yesterday. This is the finished project. It is permanently attached to my wall and therefore not going on etsy. Oh well. At least I like it.
What do you think?
Details for those that are crafty and/or interested: Letters are from Michael's and are covered with some SU designer series paper that retired last year. I didn't have enough paper to cover each one with it's own sheet of paper, so I patch worked it. Ribbon 5/8 inch grosgrain in Riding Hood Red (retired), Pink Pirouette (retired) and Chocolate Chip. I also inked the edges with a finger dauber using Riding Hood Red. Die cut letters are textured Chocolate Chip card stock (SU) using Cricut's Storybook and Plantin Schoolbook cartridges.
