First, I learned that croup can be an awful, scary little sickness. Luckily, I learned this second-hand. My asbestos friend (who I think of like a sister)’s son (who I think of as…a nephew, then?) was in the emergency room last night with it. As of last report, he was much improved. Send your wishes for a speedy recovery over to lazyhippiemama.
The second thing I learned this week was that crafting with duct tape can be immensely enjoyable.
I spent all day yesterday turning a Cheerios box into a “writer-on-the-go” bag. It took me almost three rolls of duct tape to make and only one unscheduled trip to Walmart to purchase more. I put a pocket on the front. I was going to put a cell phone pocket on the side, but then I got lazy.
I have 2 full rolls of white and blue duct tape left and a slightly smaller cereal box. I have the urge to make another bag. But if I bring (or create) one more tote bag into my house, my husband might go crazy. So, if I make it under the plan of donating it to the church craft show, he can’t get mad, right?
If I don’t use the duct tape, it will just get old and gross and go to waste anyway. So I might as well craft with it, right?
(Wait, am I the only one who worries about duct tape going bad?)
Thanks for the good wishes! I think next you should make a lanyard: http://pinterest.com/pin/128915608054227421/ or maybe a drum for M: http://pinterest.com/pin/287245282455130872/ or a bedskirt: http://pinterest.com/pin/347551296213474709/ OR you could make Domo folder! http://pinterest.com/pin/347551296213347725/
Great ideas! I think I like the drum best. I will have to get my hubby to save his next empty oatmeal container.
