Crafty Disasters

So, I decided to sign up for an RPG-based craft swap.  It seemed ideal for me, and I had some really neat ideas for what I might do.  After being paired up with someone who’s a fan of Vampire: The Masquerade I began the process by ordering all of the supplies I couldn’t get locally and making a trek to the local fabric store for the stuff I could get here.  I had a very generous timeline and felt I could make it all happen.

Then the problems started.  The supplies I ordered online didn’t arrive (and still haven’t arrived).  Our second-hand sewing machine died in a way that wasn’t repairable.  Our glow in the dark paint didn’t dry the way it should.  Our printer will only print magenta.

It’s not a disaster yet.  I’ve gotten a lot of the smaller stuff done, but my largest item is wrapped up in all of the supplies that have yet to come.  If I don’t see anything by Wednesday I need to talk to my partner and the organizer and start work on plan B.  Plan B will involve a lot of swearing.

    Sometimes crafty disasters happen, even to the most seasoned crafters – or so I’ve been told.

    Just keep at it – it’ll be worth it in the end! You can do eeet! 🙂

  • About Me

    Hi! My name is Kimberly Horne and I have absolutely nothing interesting to say. Unfortunately for you I DO have an overpowering need to tinker with technology which is explains the presence of this journal. I mostly talk about games (video and tabletop), technology, tattoos, and my pets.

    If you're an Eclipse user you may find my Eclipse category more interesting.

    Similarly, if you're an Arduino nerd then maybe my projects might be of interest.

    Since I've discovered Twitter this journal has been neglected somewhat. If you really want to stalk me your best bet is to follow me on twitter.
