Minuscule Amount?

I don't know if you can see any change here but there actually has been....



- I suppose I'm sadly lacking in my education but I seriously had no clue what on earth THIS was.  Having said that, it IS rather cute and would be a conversation piece even if you didn't know what it was.  I would love to make one and tuck it in among my houseplants.

- I doubt I would ever make any of THESE but aren't they pretty?

- HERE's another great use for recycled jeans!

Today's quote..."Be nice to crafters.  We have enough creativity to make your death look like an accident and due to a lifetime of hot glue gun burns, we leave no fingerprints"

    1. Yay! That means I'm succeeding in what I'm trying to create. Thanks Vicki.

  3. Love the jean planters! That jean application would also make a neat purse.

    1. It would make a nice purse, you're right. Too bad I didn't still have my denim stash because if I did I'd be trying to make these.

  4. Well, every little addition adds up;))) I think it's coming along beautifully...

    I am still fighting off my back strain--but it is better today; Thom drove me to Big Y so we could finish stocking up in case c-virus hits around here badly...he did all the lifting ;)) what a guy;)))

    We were supposed to go to my daughter's for a b-day celebration (Thom is turning 81 Friday) and meet up with the rest of our family there...but we've decided to err on the side of caution and postpone it until this scare is overwith...
    I am much relieved as I was a bit worried...Hope you stay safe and warm..hugs, Julierose

  5. One step at a time - but sometimes that step is backwards!

  6. It's wonderful to see the progress of your projects. You must have such a good sense of accomplishment. I might actually try those eggs - maybe without the crystals. I think they would be just as pretty. Remind me of some marble ones I collected back in the 70's.

    1. It's funny - when I'm looking face-to-face at my project I don't see all that much progress, but when I see it on here it's more noticeable. I like those eggs too but I doubt I'll try making them.

  7. Move on with the quaint little church. I have a thing about any church.

    1. OK - I'm moving! I like old churches too...and barns....and houses....and vehicles

  8. I think I see details on the door, and the rose window as well as the side windows. And the siding looks more "drawn in" on the top one. Am I right?

    1. Yep, your eyes are working well! I'm working on making it look more 'moldy oldie'

  9. Your church additions are so good - I love it already. If I had any old jeans, I'd sure make a few of the plant covers for self or give-aways. I have made a garden tool apron from old jeans.

    1. I'd make those planter covers too - I really like them. But...I'm not going out to buy thrifted jeans just so I can make any!!

  10. The church is coming along nicely. So I didn't know what the green guy was and i still don't but I sure like him!! I remember when I was a kid...before 2nd grade (because that's when we moved to a different neighborhood) we found a Geode and pulled it around in a red wagon. It was about the size of a bowling ball. For the life of me I don't remember who owned the wagon or the friends I was with or who kept it. Wish it was me and I still had it. I'm pretty sure I would not plant plants in a tin can but the craft is pretty neat.

    1. I had no clue about the little green guy either but thought he would be a real conversation starter if he lived among the houseplants. As for the planter idea - I would be tempted to use a clay pot rather than the tin can.

  11. It's looking great Mary Anne. I had heard of a bowtruckle but I'm not sure where from or how. Perhaps that's more worrying than not knowing what one was? He is very cute! Christine xx

    1. At least you've heard of one - I certainly hadn't. Either way, he's cute!

Thank you so much for leaving comments! I appreciate you taking the time out of your busy life to talk to me. It's wonderful to know that someone is actually reading my mumblings and even more fun if I can connect with you and visit your blog.
