Calming Coraline

Today was supposed to be craft day!  But instead, a kitchen accident left me with wet cupboards.  Having to move everything out the affected cupboards left me with:

all my cleaning stuff on the floor

and my pots, pans and storage containers all over my craft table.

I’m not going to lie, I was mad as heck!  I mean, steam coming out my ears!  LOLOL!  I can laugh now but I’m telling you … I was steaming!!!!  This was not how I expected to spend my Saturday.  But after I worked out that all I can do now is work through the situation, I went to my new happy place.  My new nirvana.

Yep … while all that mess was going on, I did this:

Three packs of Soaring Strawberry Koolaid, my trusty dye pot, yarn from my stash, Doug E Fresh and the Get Fresh Crew on the radio   =   finding my perfect coral and a happier, calmer me!

That’s what crafting is all about right?  Finding your happy despite … life!  😀

Hope you’re having a wonderful Saturday.  😀

      Spring really is in the air although it’s still very chilly in my neck of the woods. Crafting is definitely my sanctuary, happy place, nirvana, whatever we want to call it. I’m so happy that I have it.

    Kool-aid makes for pretty colors! I guess that’s better than drinking the stuff. You will have to tell me the trick on keeping it from getting tangled. -Nizzy

      It really does; and this use is way better than having all that dye inside your body. I definitely prefer to wear over drinking it. I’m going on the hunt for this shade, it really is my most perfect shade of coral.

      To prevent the tangles, I use figure 8 ties. That’s what’s recommended. Other than that, when I put the yarn in the pot, I stir gently from the inside and try not go get my spoon tangled in the yarn.

    That is a pretty color. I am glad that you can laugh (a little) about the accident now.
