This blog forever dances over the line that divides art from craft and then skips back across it again.
What is the difference between the two, anyway? I have a hard time nailing it down, but I know I love them both.
Not long ago, I would’ve defined a work as ‘art’ based on the skill level it took to create it; now I define it more by the raw creativity of the concept. Now, the fact that I’ve never seen it before, or ever conceived of the possibility of the design, is what strikes me as ‘art’ .
I have a board on Pinterest called “Art is…”. I only pin projects that I find truly creative and inspiring. You can see some of them here.
No serious art in my post today, however, just spring craftiness.
We’ve been having warmer weather, and what with the appearance of Cadbury Eggs on the store shelves, I’m ready to wave a fond farewell to winter.
***You know you love Cadbury Eggs when you’re in the store and happily pick up a box of 4 to purchase. Meanwhile, your daughter has turned around and noticed a case of Cadbury Eggs that a stocker has left unattended. She then turns to you with all seriousness and suggests, “Mom, just save yourself some trouble and get a box of 48.”
These little baskets were made with the dessert sized paper plates.
There are a zillion ways you could make these using all kinds of fun supplies.
I made three, each in a different style. Hope you like them!
