More REALLY important stuff…

What to do on a rainy Saturday when one should be doing taxes, pay bills, wash dishes, and all that other stuff? Tackle a pinterest project – what else? This one is of uttermost importance. I’ve been saving toilet-paper rolls for a while now. Here it is:

VERY SIMPLE TO DO:

– CUT A SLIT INTO TP ROLLS
– PAINT THEM
– LET DRY
– USE

BEFORE – MESSY AND NOT AT ALL ORGANIZED:

AFTER – NEAT AND NICE:

NOTES / LESSONS LEARNED:

– You have to be either really bored or really trying to procrastinate on something to do this.

– Here’s the inspiration to this masterpiece: joyastle   (teeheee – I just realized that they didn’t bother to paint the TP rolls. Makes so much more sense. LOL)

Attack from Planet Red Heart

Since I haven’t had much time for any crafting experiments, here is my favorite 2011 project:

My neighbor Lisa is a school-teacher. Worthy profession, BUT they get like 200 days or so off each year. And instead of sitting at home feeling bad about how little vacation the rest of us have, Lisa is happily galavanting all over the country. Well – punishment was brewing just one floor up. She had it coming!

THE GREAT FAIRFAX YARN-BOMBING OF 2011

Many thanks to Jill, Amanda, Melody, Melissa, Leo, Sat Avtar, and Michele for a flawless execution of the grand plan.

And this was Lisa’s reaction:

        “So, I was away for almost two weeks exploring the state of Utah. After a long drive home, I look at my car that had been parked for the two weeks and notice a crocheted flower on the antena. I think…how cute, my neigbor left me a flower. Little did I know, something more grand was just around the corner. I came to my patio, dropped my luggage and laughed hard! My whole patio had been yarn bombed! Everything had yarn pieces on it. There were stars, flowers, confetti, you name it and it was there. Chairs, the door, the light, chimes, the railing, table, bushes, the watering container, plants, etc., were yarn bombed. I loved it! Thanks to all that were involved.

Now…who’s going to help me take this all down? :)”
