Animal Cookies and Tacky Glue May 15, 2011

So, there is only so much Facebook.com I can handle today. I have been hyper, twitchy and just plain crazy today! I am having a hard time sitting still but I discovered a wonderful iced animal cookie the other day (just what my fat butt needs!) but they are so stinkin’ good! I made myself calm down (somewhat) in order to munch on some of these delicious cookies (followed a nice glass of iced tea!) and start working on a new project that I came across about a week ago.

I started making a Japanese Kusudama or a paper flower ball. Here is the pattern I am using. Time consuming I know but I have to keep busy doing something I cannot just do nothing! It isn’t me. I am making one of these bad boys with some awesome florescent orange paper that I found at my local Wal-Mart. My squares of paper are 1 1/2 inch by 1 1/2 inch (so tiny!) I will defiantly be making bigger squares if I decide to make anymore after this one.  I will be posting some photos later on so I can show you my kusudama.

Now that I am covered in animal cookie crumbs and tacky glue I do believe I have calmed myself down enough to let my restless mind have some sleep tonight. Please check back soon for my kusudama progress and pictures!
