Can Caddy

I am still sewing/crafting. That and reading are the only things that stop the insane wasp nest of anxiety inside my brian. 

But in no way can I take credit for this project. The idea is a shameless rip off from Sandi Henderson, Robert did most of the work and a friend even provided the freshly washed cans. 

We had everything but the knob feet which set us back a whopping two dollars at the local home improvement store. The only thing I did was decoupage the old maps onto the cans. I will say I did a right nice job of picking local maps. 

Decoupaging is relaxing and therapeutic. I need to do more of that. Glue stuff onto other stuff. 

I love this caddy. Its perfect to store all the markers and pens that Lenora loves to color with and easy to carry around. So get on out there and get yourself a handy husband, some cans and have at it.

Cracked Egg

We had an impromptu easter egg dying get together courtesy of Grandma JoJo. 

These traditional holiday things slip my mind these days. Im sure it will get better but we just kinda go with it, whatever happens. 

It was nice, really nice. I need to be better at remembering to do this, making more happy memories and messes, lots of happy messes. 

Maybe we are like this egg. Cracked but beautiful. And man is that one beautiful egg. Tasty with salt too. 

Hope you all had a nice Easter, Spring Equinox or whatever celebration it is that brings you joy.
