I've had two small projects on my to do list forever. Lately, they have been getting in my nerves.
I had three little helpers this morning who were feeling crafty, so I put them to work!
FIRST UP, create a hanging basket for Franca's room that I can water in place.
I'm lazy about watering, and the hanging basket in Franca's room does not have a bottom, meaning I have to take it down and water it in the bathroom. I couldn't find a bottom for the current pot nor a cute replacement hanging pot, so I decided to make my own.
Marc has been teasing me that ribbon is my new duct tape and I had every intention of rehanging this with wire, but... wire snips and sharp wire isn't the best thing to use around kids, so ribbon it is!
SECOND was the completely overgrown ginseng ficus in the kitchen. I've been meaning to separate and repot this for oh, a year or so.
I even picked up a new pot on our last Ikea trip, but I've just been starring at it practically bursting out of its current pot for too long now.
We still were not crafted out, so we broke out some of the 'ACK, BROKEN LEG!' gift craft packages from Aunt Julie and made a lady bug and butterfly.
