Almost a 1 1/2 years ago (during summer),
I developed a strained thumb.
It seriously messed with my Crafty Mojo!
I couldn't crochet (which is what I think caused the strain),
knit, or embroider.
What's a Crafty Girl to do?
I could hold a marker!
Even though Melissa's Birthday wasn't until February,
I made this Potter Switch-plate for her and held onto it
for months and months...
I'm terrible with Secrets like that!!!!
But I persevered.
For the details:
I found the Switch-plate at the Thrift Store.
Sketched the design "free hand" with pencil.
Colored in with Oil Based Sharpies.

when one only remembers to turn on the light."
