Laura and I were trying to track down Patty and Greta. It's so easy to get lost in IKEA! We finally found them in the children's section digging through stuffed animals.... they figured they didn't have grandchildren yet and that they would take these cute critters home instead. HMMMMM I think I'll wait for grandchildren... and Laura already has some. Well... those critters sure won't cry or eat much!!
Poor Jeff... My ETSY stock, extra ottoman frames and now the Women't Shelter stuff are now stored in his University of Louisville office. The office that he has never been able to use in 14 years because my stuff always seems to expand in his office. The office that he looks at from the doorway with a longing look.....
I did clean it up once for you, dear.... but I just needed a little more space, after all, I can't just get rid of these craft supplies!. When you retire I'll make sure you have that "little" corner of the house that is just yours!!
Keep that in mind, Julie Kinsolving for the next move!
I'm getting ready for the ARTS RECREATION AND WORSHIP Conference. Almost packed and ready to go and have boxes and boxes of gift basket supplies to head to Montreat on the 6th. I'll take all these supplies and get them carefully and tightly packed into the car. Hopefully there'll be room for my suitcase! Doesn't this look like fun?!
It is a good thing Jeff is headed down in his truck for the Annual Golf Scramble that kicks off ARW. He'll need to take the stuff that comes out of the PCUSA warehouse!
I decided to make a fun planter for one of the blue light specials at ARW since it only takes a week or two for the plants to establish themselves and start to look full. I understand they don't take much water and so it should be fine to travel with and will stay nice looking. It'll be a pretty addition to someone's home.
The one thing that I've learned about succulents is that they propagate easily. If you break off a petal just lay it on a piece of paper towel or on top of dirt and it'll start to root.
While I was on a roll getting ARW stuff together, I decided to pull out an old copper bowl and teapot that I had in the storage room and make a fun succulent planter for my great room. I figure I might be able to keep this one alive for a little longer than most plants. I'm having the worst time finding the succulents with the deep purple and rose colors around here. I'm spoiled by the beautiful colors in the plants that I've found in Florida. Maybe they'll be around here when the weather gets a little warmer.
Reuse and Recycle... that's what it is all about.
