Jampacked weekend! We were able to get winter coats, new cozy boots(ugg style from Costco for only $30!), go to a pancake breakfast and donate coats, soccer, bowling, nurse sick ones, then last volleyball of this session followed by making a gigantic spider web in the front yard.
I read about this idea on hgtv and thought about it all weekend until Sunday afternoon. Then I found some white yarn and our tent stakes and went to work. It took me about 2 hours but it was strangely satisfying and therapeutic. I could have easily stopped after an hour but I wanted to reinforce and ad more cross webs. Also, I had some white Christmas lights that I hadn't even opened. I put those up to accent the web. Some neighbors stopped by and said another neighbor had done something similar but set up a black light to accent it at night. I might try to rig that up. That would be cool! My kids were very excited by my efforts. I am thinking of also making a giant black spider for the center. i have 2 large ones already but you really can't see them too well. Best thing? it didn't cost me any money!!! Woot woot! I am hoping that it sticks around for the next 2 weeks and that some adventurous squirrel or boy try to climb it!
Read my books and finished a duvet cover that I made from sheets so that I could wash it. I had hurriedly made it for a guest and not finished or top stitched it. Now it is finished and top stitched. I also spray painted a mirror. I am almost ready with my items for my stairwell gallery.
Great weekend! So excited for Monday, NOT but I will live! -W
