Wednesday turned out to be kind of a long, HOT day! I spent most of it running around trying to find some ribbon for a frame that I am finishing up for a customer and going to appointments that didn't exist! Oops!! Not such a good thing when you prepare a 4-year-old for the dentist all day and then come to find out when you get there that the appointment is actually NEXT Wednesday! Oh well, he was relieved but now I have to think of a new speech about how great the dentist is..
Anyway, I got some alone time at night and decided to make the driftwood sailboat that I so loved on Simple Daisy. Heather is so creative and inspiring and I loved her driftwood boat, she did such an amazing job! These boats were also featured by Maya at Completely Coastal (along with other cool driftwood crafts and inspirations)
So, I dug into my bag-o-driftwood that I collected from my vacation up North...
(did I mention that I kind of like driftwood?)
found some pieces that I thought would work..
grabbed the power drill.......I love power tools!!!!!!
This is my "Oh Yeah, Power Tools" face!
I do not, however, love mosquitoes! They were everywhere!!
I quickly drilled the hole for the pole, twisted in some eyelets that we had and glued the pole into place and ran inside!!
I picked up some fabric squares when I was getting the ribbon, cut them into triangles, tied them down with twine that I found in the garage and.....
I placed in on my fireplace to bring in some more of the aqua color over in that area.
There is another great craft idea from inspiring blogger friends, and a nice way to end the day!
Off to find the next one!!
