An Impish Convoy for Alpha Stamps


An Impish Convoy - Nichola Battilana

This month at Alpha Stamps is all about little houses. I had a couple of ideas bandying about... but they refused to cooperate and I ended up with this sort of impish convoy instead.

I don't mind that they misbehaved and did their own thing. You can't get mad when projects don't turn out as expected... or don't cooperate at all. Sometimes you just have to go with it. Sometimes THAT is the point ~ to play and enjoy the process of making. To get something... anything!... out and done on that work table. Wheeled house shaped shrines? Why not!

If you have a pile of "to-do's" in your work pile, maybe a little impish convoy is what you need too. A project to make for the sake of making, even if it doesn't make too much sense, to keep you out of trouble, and to drive the rut goblins away.

  3. Oh, if I had a dime for every project that went awry. . but then ended up being something invaluable and inspiring to my own heart and craft! Rut goblins indeed. . . no better way to shoo them away than to push back with a little devil-may-care makery!
