A Trip to *Holland. I started blogging to record my experiences as the mother of children with special medical needs. Somewhere along the way, my blog morphed into a celebration of the small joys and simple successes that I've found in my various roles as mother, wife, homemaker, bargain hunter, and beginning seamstress.
My three children went back to school this week, leaving me all alone.... all day.... every day....for the first time in eleven years! Let me tell you ladies, this transition is not as easy as I thought it would be, say, nine years ago. So, I am coping by crafting and organizing and sprucing up my home. I expect big things of myself, this school year!
I'm sharing my first craft project of the school year with you, today.
- paint (I used Rust-oleum Satin Aqua spray paint)
- 18 gauge aluminum or copper wire--the kind used for hanging pictures frames
- sturdy wooden shape--a block, scrap 2x4, pedestal candle stick, etc.--that is flat on at least one side. (I used a short piece of unfinished oak railing, leftover from another project)
- sandpaper and glue
