It's a cold winter's evening in Los Angeles. Rain is pouring down all around Moss Cottage. I'm a little giddy what with the rain and the Snowdrift Martini I'm sipping. See that great big birdie up there in my journal? I found him HERE at Martha Stewart. Painted fabric silhouettes – it's a cool little project you might have some fun with.
It's such a delicious feeling to hunker down up here in winter wonderland. The cat posse has folded themselves up into very tight round fur packages. They are scattered here and there. One of them just took a lick of my Snowdrift martini before I could bat him away. I could have sworn he winked at me.
I found THIS tutorial for 5 Point Stars last year. I made them out of scrapbook paper. They're hanging everywhere.
If you start making them just know that you will be powerless to stop. They store easily with the other decorations by folding them up and securing with a paperclip. Tomorrow I'm making them with the kiddos. They always ask before we begin a project: "Is this gonna be hard?" I always say, "For most 2nd graders yes, for you, NO." The stars really are fairly easy.
THIS Modular Mathematic Dodekaeder looks less so.
Today we made THESE. I think they are BEAUTIFUL.
More gorgeous photos that Suzanne took in Italy. Most of these are from the Valentino show at the Ara Pacis Museum in Rome. The glass eyeballs are from the doll hospital. The big strapping fellow on the top left is delivering my present from Santa.
Try this now. You won't be sorry. Have 2 then try making the Modular Mathematic Dodekaeder. That's what I'm getting ready to do.
