Christmas Present – Dork Art


Posted on Jan 27, 2011

A few months before Christmas, I found a portafilter at Goodwill for a couple of bucks.  I instantly had a vision of what I could make Diana for Christmas.  She got a tattoo on her arm a year or so ago that she calls her Dork Badge.  It's the three most important tools she likes to have in her hand: a portafilter, pencil and a sewing needle.  After I bought the portafilter, the rest came together easily....

I'm neck deep in making paper flowers at the moment.  I'm really not doing much else since my cousin's wedding is almost exactly a month from now.  Since he's in Toronto, I need to mail off paper flowers to him soon!  So for now, all other activities are put on hold, so I can focus on this project.   I have had a constant companion while I make flowers.  Trilly is always by my side....
