What in the world did I get myself into?

Doing my own thing day.

I love doing the ATC swap card each month so I signed up for The Spring Magic Wand Swap.

A group of bloggers who are just as into the magic of creativity as I am.
Of course I am saying magic with tongue in cheek because it is a little impish and spritey.
Well I put on my Fidgit Elfglimmer hat and set to work.
I gathered up some things I had I wanted to work with.
These tiny colored beads would look good, if I could see
well enough to get them strung on a piece of thread.

First they had to be separated into 4 different colors.
I could only see 2 colors.
Okay pink and pearl would do.

Magnifying glass and tweezers.
Well I got the pearl ones strung.
Only took about an hour.
Long slender needle that I could hardly see to thread, but once I got the little buggers stabbed I was able to slide them on.

Wow that was hard.
Maybe that was not such a good idea.

Gotta look for something else.

Well that is where I stopped.
Will have to look for some more stash to work this one out.

Surely this veteran of years of Halloween, play costumes, proms and dance dresses could come up with a 
Magic Wand.

Well we will see next week on Doing My Thing Day.

Had an invitation to visit a lovely lady's blog yesterday for a giveaway.
She is very creative and that I need for inspiration.
Go over and check out her post of 4/10/2011 and look at all the beautiful things.
Go here to visit Daniella

So you wore your fairies hat, but did you summon all the little fairies with eye sight for help? Just kidding! Sounds like an adventure. My fun days are with glitter, so much fun, but such a huge mess. Everyone wears glitter for weeks afterward. My husband says that just means my wife is happy. Such an awesome man.
Anxious to see the finished product. Enjoy!
