2. It bugs me when my grandkids are dropped off to spend the day and I don't have cute healthy lunches topped off with finger jello caterpillars made in ice cube silicone molds to feed them! So I created them...
|These caterpillars look very hungry don't they? Someone should write a book about that!|
3. It bugs me that our upcoming Family Clothesline Fine Art Show, Sale, and Auction had not a single "bug-related" item in stock to sell! So I teamed up with Nick to make one.......
This talented little guy painted basic bug shapes in watercolor. Then he cut orange wings and yellow stripes from paper. Grandma added a pair of "buggy" eyes, glued everything on, and matted it. Now we have a cute bee portrait to sell at our show!!
|You'll have to "bee" at our Art Show if you'd like to buy this piece from Nick!|
4. And you know what else? The nice ladies at Bowdabra Blog kept "bugging me" to enter their Saturday Showcase So I did! I joined dozens of other links leading to great ideas from crafty bloggers everywhere. And not only that, but this delightful site features its own tutorials including pretty ribbon projects such as hair bows and bead necklaces that would be lots of fun to make with an older granddaughter. I love sites that are gracious enough to host "link parties" like this one. My other favorite is "Wow us Wednesday", another gathering event where talented people share recipes and wares once each week. Does it "bug me" that I sometimes spend hours clicking and commenting on the new blogs I discover through link parties? Naw, not really!
