It has been raining here almost every day for weeks. Quick rains, gentle rains, fierce rains, long-hard rains. Walking across the lawn barefoot I find water squeezing up between my toes.
Because of this we've found ourselves doing more kitchen-table-crafting than we normally do in June. Its been sweet, really. Though my garden is starting to resemble a jungle instead of a productive veggie patch.
Our saving grace during the last two storms has been the amazing package we received from Stubby Pencil Studio
this week. Packed with paints and markers and pencils and crafts that
are so delicious it is blowing my mind. (Watch for our giveaway from
them coming up soon!)
If the rains return this week we have some projects on the ready. Here is a preview:
We've had a secret plan in the works for these wooden cubes. I'll share what we make after the next deludge.
We've been saving our beer bottle caps
for a long time. We have some great projects in the works with these
already. The possibilities are limitless with simple free components
I'm always inspired by what other folks are creating too. Here are two projects on our list from the web:
I've been meaning to paint up some of these garden sticks from Sweet Things for a long time. Since we don't find ourselves in the garden much when its raining, we could at
least be working on a garden project while we wait for the clouds to
clear. Aren't they lovely?
