My energy was so low within the past three days. It even affect me psychologically that honestly I just want to quit doing this. I guess I’m just to harsh to myself doing everything at one time – painting, calligraphy, crafting, blogging, social media promotion and taking short classes at Skillshare and Lynda. Not to mention that I’m doing this in between two jobs. I really want to quit my day job and focus on creative-preneur. Although it can be possibly done, I can’t quit my jobs as for now since I am just starting to refine my craft and still figuring out where this will lead me.
Graphic design is choice of career to pursue albeit the medical profession’s salary is so tempting. But I realized it’s not about how much you earn but how much it will gives you the satisfaction. I should have learned this a long time ago.
“Do what you love and the money will follow.”
Sorry for the rant… but this gives me reason to continue what I have started…
So here’s another craft for Valentine’s Day
M is for Melted-Stick-Glue Heart Ornament
Stick glue isn’t just to bind two materials together. It’s melted stick can be crafted into different art that you can think of. For this Valentine’s Day I made heart ornaments that are made from stick glue.
How to Make the Melted-Stick-Glue Heart Ornament
- Glue gun
- Stick glue
- petroleum jelly
- Clear glass tile
- Draw a heart on a cardboard. You can also cut it out. But it won’t matter since this heart is only a template to trace using the glue gun.
- Put the heart shape or drawing underneath the clear glass tile.
- Apply petroleum jelly on the side of the clear glass tile.
- Trace the heart figure using glue gun and stick glue. Make sure it’s hot.
- Run more melted stick glue inside the heart – criss-crossing from one side to another.
- Let it cool. then remove the heart shaped melted stick glue.
