We had an afternoon storm here today. Its good, we needed the rain. But thunder storms make me uneasy and a little nervous. Especially ones that come on fast in the daytime; they remind me of tornado weather. I'm not being paranoid, I vaguely remember the destruction caused by the tornado that destroyed my grandparents house. And I remember the damage of Hurricane Hugo. I volunteered in the aftermath of Katrina. My family hasn't had a lot of luck with storms. I'm pretty sure that contributes to some of my discomfort.
So when a storm hits, I run to the comfortable arms of my first crafting skill, cut and paste. Now that I'm older, cut and paste yields more sophisticate results, if I do say so myself. So I made these easy stars to hang in our window. I found the tutorial here, and it is very clear. I whipped up three in no time. And it was a soothing activity, what with the cutting, and folding and gluing. Very zen despite the weather outside.
My camera hates it when I try to take a picture of the window. Why does science have to thwart my attempts at a decent blog picture?
