Crafts today

Wednesday, October 23, 2013

So, I produced a "Ghost checkers" for halloween and our haunted house... my idea is to creat a "Home, horrid, home" scenery wherer two ghost will sit at this table and play checkers.... the table is from IKEA, 49 crowns (7,5 USD) that I bought some time ago to have as a show stool for doggy - I got som white contact paper and made the checker board with. And the mans (?) are made from a little thicker paper, it took a while to make them although it is all very simple:

it makes me feel happy and I need that today – the deadline anxiety is harassing me hard and I need to focus on something else than my own worthlessness... to be honest this game of checkers reminds me too much because I should have spent the time better, nobody will really care if that board of checkers is in that scenery or not.

    Very crafty! Sometimes the little details that we seem to find useless make all the difference.
    Keeping busy towards a goal is a great stress-reliever! Now that you met the deadline, hope you're feeling better and will remember this happy feeling during the "less happy" times.

    Keeping busy can keep us out of trouble, being it overeating or otherwise.

    Crafting definitely can be a place for me to hide or help me reduce stress. Sometimes I need both and sometimes I just need to be doing what I need to do. The stress that comes from procrastination is much worse than every day stress.

    Hope you are able to work through this.

    Sometime a craft project serves it's own purpose as a stress reliever. Works for me, it's not the product or it's usefulness but the process that has the most value. Still, I like it and think it a very creative touch for a horrid house scene. Looks like a chess game though. Well done.
