Are blogs a thing of the past?
Has facebook, instagram or twitter taken over?
When I started my blog a few years ago, I used it as a visual diary for myself, and if comments were left, it was a 'feel good' bonus.
Nowadays, the only time comments are left, is when I've entered an online challenge, and as such the DT members are supposed to leave a comment.
I guess I find it discouraging to the point that I wonder if what I'm making is actually worthy of comment any more, or perhaps I'm just being a little critical of myself.
What do you think? Any thoughts? Or am I just being silly?
Anyhoo ...... enough said, I'll get off my soapbox and stop feeling sorry for myself.
A couple of months ago, I made a shaped card (Pinterest inspired) for a friend's 60th Birthday.
The keyboard was fairly easy, especially as I had a punch for the notes.
Then came the hard part, the shaped piano lid.
I used scrap paper to freehand a shape, then once I was happy with it, I used it as a template to cut the lid from black card.
After searching through Pinterest, I found some Happy Birthday sheet music and printed it off - much too big. Then I printed it in the smallest format I could, so that it would fit the piano.
I added another page to give the impression of a book, inked around the edges and glued the two pages together. They were attachd to the piano.
I cut a smalled lid shape for an insert, and stamped a birthday sentiment.
All in all, I was pretty happy with the outcome, although looking back, I'm not convinced about the 'candle' numbers. Perhaps I should have nipped off the flame?
The birthday boy celebrated this occasion with family and friends
and a very enjoyable afternoon was had by all.
Thanks for stopping by today, hope you liked what you saw.
