Make one thing every day, wander like a gypsy, and shine happiness like the sun

Your can make things other than crafts, trips for instance!

on July 2, 2012

The only thing I actually made today was a trip to James Madison University for freshman orientation.  What a wonderful experience!  We’ve looked at schools, but at JMU they all were organized friendly professional, and helpful.  If anyone from there ever finds their way here, please know I am humbly grateful and appreciative for your hospitality.  I know, I know- it’s not completely free (define completely), but definitely a value added experience.

For those zero of you who’s eyeballs are burning for something I’ve made, I’m posting photos of wishing stones made from smooth beach pebbles.  I made them to hang off of trees in the yard.  If you’re feeling fanciful, they are fairy dream catchers; if you’re feeling cynical they disguise the bird poop on tree leaves.

Finally, while strolling in the yard last night assessing the storm damage, I heard what sounded to be a very strange bird call.  Out from behind a tangle of matted branches and fallen limbs popped this darling fawn!!  It was the best thing that happened all day!  His (or her) calls were answered by mom (or dad;) later in the evening in the “back nine”, as we call it, or the area we are trying to “naturalize”  aka too lazy to mow in the back yard.  ImageImageImage
