Yesterday was a run-around-for-100-errands day. One of those errands was to get new phones. It began when hubby's flip phone kept losing juice. I had a 3G. Went to the AT&T store and found that neither of our phones were in existence any longer. Hubby's went out with the Model T. Ha. But since our contract was up, we both got new phones. The iPhone 4s. I haven't even looked at mine. Hubby is better because he's playing with his to see what it can do.
So, what did I do today? I am in a swap with another lady. I already have her gift. This is a Christmas swap so it has to be to our swap partner by Dec. 15 and we can't open it until then. I looked all over what to make her. I saw a little potting garden center somewhere on Pinterest. I decided to make something like it.
I used Woodsies in the shape of popsicle sticks and thin sticks, a base, basswood, paint and glue. I racked my brain for a suitable patio base because I haven't the time to make bricks. So I stumbled across an extra vinyl tile that we have in our home. It resembles slate. And two great things: it was free and it has a sticky back.
