Can you believe it - it's May!! And the weather has been gorgeous this week!
Not even a jacket today :)
Had a guild meeting and we made paper ort boxes.
(Ort containers are for placing the snipped off threads)
It's made out of wallpaper - but you could use any thick paper.
A little glue holds the bottom flap closed...
ah yes ..
Me and the glue...
I would have prefered a glue stick.
I won't go into detail about the bottle of craft glue
Suffice it say... I touched it
(At the same time the gal next to me saying - it's cracked!)
and it ooozed all over the place.
OK.. I think I got it.
Maybe it was just a little too excited by my touch....
But wait! There's more!
It folds flat!
How cool is that!
Small and flat - Perfect for traveling.
and packing Light.
(It's a start!!!)
Could also be used to hold other things like money...
Wondering if I can make one out of fabric.
Someone brought in a few miniatures...
I can't believe how small that bear is!
sooooo cute :)
Wouldn't this make a nice Mother's Day gift???
And some beautiful stitching....
Yes... it's miniature too
(But not made by me)
Incredible... and inspiring.
We had our annual Scouting Banquet - there was LOTS of food
(yes even chocolaty cupcakes)
My son earned
his 6th award badge
and a plaque for earning all 6 stars!
He did a lot of work to earn this.
So proud of my son
I'd say that's a mighty big achievement
Speaking of big... I better get cracking on a celebratory gift...
but that's another story...
