DIY Hanging Macrame Planter
This was my first time attempting macrame and to honest, was a lot trickier than I expected! I used twine that I had lying around but one was too stiff, while the other was too light! I’ll definitely be giving this another shot as I run out of surface space. What better solution than to go up!
Two of my favorite things: plants and crafts!!!
The town where we used to live is pretty notorious for it’s terrible pot hole problem. During one of our first trips back, we hit one so large (it was too dark out to see it and thus avoid it) that it caused over $2,500. worth of damage to our car. We drive a Honda. $2,500. is a lot of damage to a Honda.
There’s also a wonderfully large and vibrant artist community there, so ummm….
Monkey business part IV.
I took this earlier today in Bristol, a city in South West England, that is fast becoming one of Britain’s premier artist communities. Bristol (where Banksy among others got their start) is not only the street art capital of the UK, but it’s also the birthplace of Ardman Animations’ beloved Wallace and Gromit.
I love it when a plan comes together.
Hey all! I have been away for a while now. I’m sorry I haven’t been here to like and reblog and see all your great posts. We’ve been travelling a ton since last week. It’s been well needed though, because I’m pretty sure this past August will go down as the worst month in a very long time, if ever. The horrible is piling on in ways I would have thought comical if it wasn’t so damned stressful.
We’ve been granted a temporary reprieve however, as my husband was asked to present at a small sciencey-type conference in Bath, England last week. I tagged along, and ever since we’ve been bouncing to different British cities on our first trip to the UK. I had planned to write about and post pictures of what I’ve seen and felt and smelled and all the other new experiences I’ve had along the way, but a downside to travel and exploration is exhaustion.
I’ll remedy that soon. And catch up on all your posts when I can.
In the meantime, enjoy the queue, and keep doing you. Cheers!
"I’m thinking about something at work, and how I’m going to conquer it."
"So what are you going to conquer?"
"There’s a project I’m working on with a group. And I think I’ve figured out a way to do it better, faster, and cheaper. So I’m gonna be like a hawk. I’m about to swoop in. I’m not gonna be a vulture. A vulture waits until things fall apart, then comes in with the solution. But I’m not waiting. I’m gonna swoop. Like a hawk. A hawk grabs the rat while it’s still alive."
"So are your coworkers the rats?"
"No, no, no. They’re helping with the rats. They’re mongooses. Mongeese."
