Hi, remember me?
Turns out this world of social networking doesn’t really sit well in the mind of the attention/focus challenged. I’m part of it all… blogger, Flickr, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter (kinda) and tumblr and I pretty much suck at them all. But, really, when I analyze my life outside of social networking the same could be said for photography, jewelry making, gardening… I’m a jack of all trades and a master of none. I try to convince myself that all that really matters is that I’m a good mother, wife, daughter and friend which makes me feel better about not being able to keep up with the rest of it. Of course, there’s lots of room for improvement in the family category, I said ‘good’ not perfect.
All that to say, I wanted to share a simple teacher gift project that we(I) did. I found it on Design Mom which I then pinned to Pinterest (there’s another one that I’m part of that I didn’t even think to mention above). DIY – Flower Frog Bowls. There are instructions on the site so I won’t repeat but a word of caution… when I glued the frogs to the bowl I walked away and left them to dry on their own, well gravity had a hand in moving the frog to the edge of the bowl so the next morning two of the frogs were glued to the side which was very frustrating since the frogs are not sold nearby and time was running out. Plus I had to go buy more bowls, these were found at Home Goods. When I repeated the process I sat with the bowls and kept adjusting the frog until the glue was tacky enough for it to remain in place. The flowers are from the store and my garden.
