I found a really neat star-shaped box at the thrift store a few years back. It sat in a closet, empty and alone for several months, maybe even a year or two. But it finally has a purpose! It makes the perfect place to store buttons! Everyone has a huge assortment of buttons around right? For sewing, crocheting, scrapbooking, collaging, jewelry-making and just sorting through when the mood strikes...
I have been very busy in my Crafty Corner lately and have been loving every minute of it. When I put my Crafty Corner together at one end of the room I tried to take up as little space as possible so the room could still be used, but still give myself room to work. So it's a tight squeeze to get into it, but once in I have room to move around a little bit. And since the entrance was rather tight, and since I had a large board hanging around, I made a door. It's just a large board that's between two pieces of furniture that can be pulled out to block the entrance. It's mostly a joke. But Doodlebug likes to pull it closed and lock me in. Which I don't mind in the least. I could stay in there all day. The only problem is that the 'door' doesn't slide easily. So when he 'locks me in' I'm locked in!
The other day I spent several minutes trying to extricate myself so I could answer the phone.
I grabbed the edge of the door and pushed, but wasn't at the right angle so it didn't budge. So I bent down and tried to shove the bottom. It didn't budge. After a lot of cursing, sweating and pushing I managed to get it to move an inch. I stopped to rest and draw a little. Then I started to get hungry so I got back to it. I finally managed to get it to open just enough to squeeze out. By that time the phone had stopped ringing.
Welcome! If you are here to be entertained with witty and wild tales about my ducklings, family life, baking, fitness, pets and general nonsense then you are in the right place. If not, well then, you may be in the wrong place, but stick around anyway and be entertained. Quack!
