Wow I’ve been busy! I’ve been doing little projects here and there. Here’s a little bit about what I’ve been up to.
My never ending shelf project has hit so many bumps along the road I was starting to think I would never get them done, but we are almost there! I finally got all the brackets and screw heads painted so all we need to do now is figure out where studs are and get them installed!!
Last weekend I went to Freewheeling Craft, an amazing little Indie Popup full of amazing pieces from local makers. They have added a workshop and offer a great variety of workshops by many of the makers that have their work on display. If you haven’t been, check it out. A girlfriend and I signed up for a Kokedama Ball workshop by Terra Velta, it was so awesome I bought a kit to make another one. They both turned out great, check them out.
I also made a cactus string art piece. I’ve been wanting to do another one for a while and when I stumbled on the piece of wood in the garage I knew it was the piece and I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it. I sketched out the design and got to work.
On my third trip to Home Depot for screws for the shelves, don’t ask, I came home with two new plant!! So I had some potting to do, which got me thinking about my ZZ plant which has needed a pot upgrade for a while now. It was already in a big enough pot but I potted it in a smaller pot inside the big pot because I couldn’t figure out how to plug the big hole in the bottom.
Now it was bursting out of the pot so I couldn’t leave it any longer. Conveniently, my husband had just brought home a bag of mortar he had leftover from a job, so I mixed some up and filled it up.
I finally got a coat of shellac onto the shelf I have been refinishing and I have a barstool makeover to reveal to you soon. I’ve been so busy making I’ve had no time for writing! Don’t worry I’ll get everything posted… eventually!
