Craft Fail…

blogphotos 002

Not everything goes as planned…this is supposed to be a plant marker. I have learned that you have to hold onto the letter stamps really tight before you hit them with the hammer. That is scary. I can run a drill pretty good…and usually when I nail something I’ll drill a pilot hole first so I can just tap tap tap with the hammer. This craft requires me to HIT with the hammer…scary for my thumbs!!

Otherwise I’ve recaulked the office – and primed the filled holes and caulked areas. Where the paint has beaded up I’ll be recaulking again. What a process!! And……….I have water pressure at my kitchen sink!!! That water jets out the faucet so fast it would take the paint off the walls if aimed that way – it jets out so strong it splashes up and hits the window! Whoop whoop!! Turned out I had a major calcium build-up at a connection point…long story…but it’s fixed. Doing dishes has become fun again – at least for the next week or so before it gets boring again. Well, I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!

Happy Crafting!!
