I have been working on some crafty stuff. I promise. Just not as much as I would like. We have been incredibly busy as a family and I just can't seem to find the time to craft ( or blog ).
What I'd like to do today is show you some of the projects I've been working on.
I am hoping that with summer vacation nearly here ( June 25TH is the last day of school here- I can't believe it's so late this year!) I'll be able to get some more things done.
I'm looking to revamp my craft storage/area. I've already started spray painting some of my older baskets in red and aqua. I think I'll feel better about everything when I have matching/ coordinating things. I'm just anal that way. I also plan on hitting Joann's or Michael's and buying about 10 wooden crates- and painting them a very pale aqua ( that way they'll still coordinate with the colors in my room). I also planted a flower container garden this year - using my old flower pots, repainted in red, white, and aqua. I even painted an old ladder flower stand ( I got it from my Dad a while ago). Which is where I am storing several pots. I feel pretty good about recycling my old pots- I only spent about $10 on spray paint, so I saved some big bucks. Especially since a lot of my pots were fairly large. We have also planted tomatoes and strawberries in Topsy Turvies this year. I am hoping for a really nice crop. If the weather warms up some I should be okay.
What are your plans for the summer? I'll be heading back to Twenty nine Palms Mid August to visit my sister and her family. I'm going by myself. I need a break and I only feel a little guilty about leaving. We just don't have the money for all of us to go- and my sister is paying for half my plane ticket. It's a HUGE help. I love it that I have her back and she has mine. It's a beautiful feeling.
Thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful week!
Ready for some Classic Riley?
