One More!

I added one more state to my Geocaching map over the weekend!



I've been to California many times. This however, was my first time there as a Geocacher! There was only time for one cache and we grabbed it on the way home.

I was a big one!

... And it won't be the last one there, I'm sure!

I've now geocached in 14 states! 

How many states have you geocached in?

Pinterest Fail

I saw this really great idea on Pinterest... You put your yarn and thread scraps into a suet feeder and the birds can use them in their nest building. I have plenty of scraps and figured this would be an easy enough project. I worried a little bit about the scraps falling out though so I added some craft wire to make the holes smaller.

Here is my finished project:

Yarn in Suet Feeder

And here it is all over the tree it hangs in....

Bitch Please.

I know I've been a little absent lately.... Just haven't had much to say or time to do anything.... I'm still sending and receiving handmade postcard though. However, It's kind of depressing when I put a lot of energy and thought into what I send out and then I get a card back that obviously hasn't had much time put into it. While I know every isn't as artistic or crafty as I may be.... I can tell when I'm getting screwed over. It's not hard to cut out a rectangle and slap a few stickers on an call it a "handmade" postcard (I've been getting too many of these lately!). I guess maybe they are doing it for the communication and I'm doing it for the "art?" I'm not sure. But I've joined one last swap and if I don't get some awesome cards dammit, I'm taking a break! haha.

Ironically what sparked this post was one AWESOME card that I got. I also got a not-so-awesome one a few days before. And just holding them side by side - no comparison! I know I sound like a bitch, but at lest make me think you tried.

Here is the AWESOME card I got!

Awesome Postcard!
