Tissue Cover

You may be disappointed if you fail, but you are doomed if you don’t try…Beverly Sills

It looks easy, it seems easy and however really isn’t easy.  Ok, maybe it is to those that have thousands of wondrous words floating around their head and they can easily and quickly write and people love what they write.  This is a learning process and I will not be discouraged…yet. :) It isn’t my words so much that I want to pass along but rather to share my skills and maybe inspire someone to make something.

I haven’t even ventured to figure out how to appear on search engines.  No one would know I’m here other than maybe through Pinterest.  I worked hard on creating a very usable list of Jewelry Tutorials that anyone could do and that would cost little to no money to make.  Not only would any of the items be great for starting up in crafts but  would make great Mother Day gifts.  70+ different things and all low-cost and super-duper cute.  4 days and not one single Pin.  Not one.  Could be the label that is on Pinterest.  I created the label in Microsoft Publisher because that is what is on this computer. Obviously Publisher doesn’t cut it. Probably more user error and Debbie isn’t cutting it. However, I’m not giving up. I am going to create a couple of other labels and see if they do any better. I’ll post my progress to help anyone else who is trying to start a blog too.

Blah blah blah……no more whining here. Anyway, this week I made a tissue box cover with pockets. I was needing a gift for someone in a nursing home and I thought this would be perfect. I put a little tablet and pen in one pocket, chap stick in another, Tic Tac mints in the third and I left the last one empty. I didn’t give it yet but I love it and I hope it will be well received. Could someone make me one if I go to the hospital or nursing home? I will write a tutorial on how I did this. This was just my test.

I am very sorry, looking at my photo of the tissue box, I have to work on my picture-taking skills too.  Gosh I thought I was near perfect (other than my 1000 imperfections which I ignore).  Oh this ever growing list of imperfections.

See you next time.
