Mid-Winter Break

Who couldn't use a break from winter? But actually, that's what they call this four day weekend at school. So I won't see Halona today. I'm planning on going on Wednesday. When I went last Wednesday, there was no one else in the mentoring room. We like having the room to ourselves. So all I have to do today is clean bathrooms before I can play.
I worked on the Winter Box yesterday but could only get so far before I needed some elastic. I don't have the right size so I'll have to get some at JoAnn's today. I cut down all eight sides and they fit in the lid now. Progress. This is very much a trial and error project. The directions use tacky glue but I don't have any of that so I'm using double stick tape. The kind that fits an automatic tape gun (ATG) which is way stronger than the scotch tape kind.
These are the last pictures for the Imagine scissors fob and the Keepsake Heart. I might add a bow to the heart. I have a cameo that may fit the center of the heart but I haven't tried it yet.
I picked up the poppy biscornu as it looks like it won't take too much work to finish it off. Eddy's face is finished. Yeah. Again, progress.
I watched the Oscars and thought is was nice. I am a fan of James Franco. But Anne Hathaway was very comfortable up there and a great host. The Marilyn Monroe bit fell flat.
I am trying to talk myself out of ordering stuff from market. Do I need more stuff to stitch? I must be crazy.
