Well, I think it's official. I am addicted. Addicted to freezer paper crafts. Completely. I don't have all that much time for art-related projects these days, with an adorable 2-month-old who usually steals most of my attention. However, when he drifts off for one of his mid-day naps, I often pull out the freezer paper, find a shirt to embellish, and get to work.
Monsters have been my recent subject matter of choice. Perhaps it's because I am teaching a Fantasy Art workshop and our first theme was monsters. Or maybe I am running out of new and exciting robot ideas, so monsters seemed a logical next step. Or perhaps it's due in part to next month's arrival of Halloween. Or maybe, just maybe, it's because I now have my own little monster at home who needs adorable, Mama-made outfits. Monsters seem to suit our little guy perfectly. While he's un-monster-like in his sweet disposition and lack of hairiness and big feet, he is just about as curious as I imagine those creatures to be.
And so, I continue on in my freezer paper crafting adventure. Perhaps I will allow a few of my creations to make their way into my Etsy shop instead of into my son's closet. For now, he's got first dibs. But, if I keep going at this pace, he'll have more shirts than he can handle. And, I'm sure he won't mind sharing. He's a thoughtful little monster, you see.
