So it turns out that I may have a lucrative career as a wood worker. OK, not really but I was fairly crafty today with a 'do it yourself' box that I picked up at Joanns today. My mothers sent me some money for my birthday and I haven't gotten anything crafty since I've been here and there have been some things that I have needed and wanted.
Exhibit A would be a toy box for the kids. B has killed one of the plastic totes that we brought up here with us for his toys, and it seems like getting them in the tote at the end of the day is too difficult. (Yes, I know a toy box won't help but at least it will make me feel better when I'm picking them up at the end of the day!)
So I present to you:
super cheap and cheesy, made in China, wood box that I stained, lacquered, and painted!!
Exhibit B would be all the gosh darn hair clips that have been hanging out in the bathroom with no place to go. I had these cute frames much like these, but not quite as awesome:) But alas, they were left behind. So, wanting to make the most of my extra cash I found some frame mats that were on clearance for .97! I knew I had a hot glue gun, ribbon and tacks. Put it all together and VOILA!!!
Cute eh? I was proud of myself. So since I was super productive today...what have you all done?
