New Year, Same Crazy

Posted January 10, 2015 By dealinanddishin

TweetSo it’s January 10, and most would write about resolutions on January 1st. I don’t “do” resolutions. It doesn’t really matter, because it’s the same each year: Organize something, paint, exercise, eat better, work on my blog (that one has been getting shoved to the side too much).  My “resolutions” happen usually when school is […]

Posted November 23, 2014 By dealinanddishin

TweetOur Girl Scout troop was going to participate in the local Christmas parade. We had mostly finished our Between Earth and Sky journey so figured a fun craft for them to make for the parade would be good. Since it is for Christmas bells are what came to mind.

TweetI made this PVC Craft Show Display for my elastic headbands. This could work for necklaces, scarves, etc. I went back to Ace Hardware, where I got the supplies for the Hair Scrunchy Display. I used the same spray paint as before. I bought a 10 foot piece of 1/2 inch PVC. I still have […]
