Oh Krista, I hope the kiddos get over their colds fast...

I agree with you. We have been having some yucky weather as well. My kids have been dying to go outside and I have been dying to send them out. This morning the boys woke up with colds so we won't be getting much crafting done today. I started a crochet unicorn toy last night. It's turning out bigger than I anticipated, but I'm excited to work more on it tonight! I also need to get back to my diamond painting at some point in time.

Yesterday my littles and I worked on some Mother's Day projects. They painted some terra cotta pots and once they were dry I put succulents in the pots. We made one for my mom, my hubbies mom, and one for me. They turned out so stinking cute. Nothing better than homemade gifts.

Denise, that is so cute. And looks fun to make! This style of chair reminds me of my sister in law and the style of things she has in your yard. I'm going to show her this picture! Maybe I can help her make one. There are so many creative people in this world.

Oh thanks for that tip Grace! Didn't think of varnishing to stopping it from warping.

Denise,,, yep, I have done that (cut and nailed a board to the chair seat),, and sealed it with varnish so the water wouldn't warp the wood right away.

I will try to get it done in time for jubilee Grace. But it rained today so I didn't go out to paint it. The chair doesn't have a seat of any kind just a frame. It had a rush seat I believe at one time. I bought two of them at an auction for next to nothing and made macrame seats for them. One I still use , the other, the one I am painting got broke so I put it in the garage and it has been there for quite a few years. Time to give it new life. I think I can use one of those square galvanized tubs for it. If it doesn't fit I will put a board on top and fit a planter into that.

Denise, I like the idea of a chair planter. I would love to see how it turns out. I don't believe I have seen one before.

Well Grace, I feel the same way! Didn't manage to get anything done other then make more work lol! I have been super busy chatting with people in Facebook messenger. Younique had a HUGE product release this morning and I was working on orders. Glad that's done with lol. Now to find some relaxing crochet. And maybe even a nap!

Denise,,, get the chair done in time for MJF Jubilee and you can plant a mini garden in it...
I did something similar years ago... had DH cut out a circle in the wood seat to accommodate a large flower bowl, added herbs, and a few mini decos in it...and had it out by my front door to greet visitors,,, that is until the mints starting growing crazy.. lol! had to transplant the herbs to the back yard garden... but fun none the less..,

Tomorrow I am working on painting a chair that has been kicking around for some time. I have decided to make it into a planter as the seat is gone out of it. I think I may put it on the back porch. Lots of ideas for it from Pinterest!

You all seem super busy! Ruthie, I would love to see your chair when it's finished. I'm not sure what I am going to work on next. I have so many projects to get done that I'm just not sure where to start! Lol one step at a time right?

Today I am working on a painting up a old chair to put in a friends garden. I am painting it purple. I am then attaching a sign that says Welcome.

The vertebrae will not be painted or sealed. I intend on attaching strings to the leg bone, tying macramé knots and sliding on the bones. I may attach some small beads along the sides. I dropped this board and lost the top piece. I'll have to search harder for it. Or get another chicken.
