This weekend I spent the time on an art piece, slow stitch block and I made a few art journal tags yesterday. I was going to try to pick back up a book I had started to read for review but decided against it for the moment. Allow me to explain. I haven’t read anything from this author before and her work is well noted. Meaning reviewers have raved about her “historical accuracy.” Here is where I needed to put the book aside. It’s not because the premise is bad or the story isn’t intriguing…It’s because there is an historical event that is in question and how the writer spins it. I get some of it but yet it is extremely one-sided and for me, it’s a bit misleading. See my issue at hand? *laughing* I want to finish the book because I have the bones of my review in place and I like many aspects of the story. I just need some more time to wallow in my thoughts. Maybe the author’s spin-or take take on the issue-if you will- is for her story? Not sure so… I want my review to be fair yet share my honesty without stepping on any toes.
Okay, back to these fun tags I made! Last week I painted and stained burlap to use in the upcoming weekend tag making.
The pictures show the results and they were so much fun to make! You can also use these for gift tags and other projects. What are some moments in life that are worth your investment? -Stephanie
