My daughter's eighth birthday party is this Saturday. She has chosen as her theme, "Wicked" the broadway show. I explained to here that most kids might not know about "Wicked" and she said, "so". So the theme is basically good witches and bad witches. We have black witch hats and tiaras to choose from. The kids will tie on ribbons to the magic wands shown above. Each kid will get to make two magic wands. I always anticipate the party craft will take about 20 minutes and they usually eat up about 7 minutes. Most of the party will consist of 11 girls running and screaming.
I spent part of the weekend and a good deal of the snow day yesterday whipping these things up. They are stars cut from glitter sticky foam and stuck back to back around a dowel. I cut out 48 of those darn things. Next year I've got to think of an environmentally friendly craft.
It is a rare sunny day here. I was going to photograph some of my new pieces outside, but since I need an overcast day for that, it will have to wait. Perhaps until tomorrow. Perhaps just 30 seconds or so. I am working on four new pieces and hopefully I can finish them off before the weekend. I believe that will put me up to 14 pieces in the Signs of the Times series.
I'm still GoogleMapping in my spare time. Can't think of too many U.S. cities I have not visited. Now I am going to some places I've never thought about before. Gary, Indiana. Shreveport, Louisiana, Davenport, Iowa. The latter seemingly a nice place to live.
Why do you live where you live? Do you live in a place of your choosing? Do you live in a place of another's choosing? Is there another place you are longing to live?
