Repurposed Coffee Can – Chicken Coffee Canister

I’m starting to think this week should have been designated a “repurposing” week instead of Mason Jar Crafts Week since I have only finished one Mason Jar craft so far this week!

I have two of those on the go, so stay tuned.  For now….

I have been accumulating coffee cans for us to repurpose in the craft room to hold all the crap/craft supplies we have.

While I was sitting around waiting for a service technician to fix my internet yesterday, I thought I would get to work on a coffee can I had base painted to replace the one I keep our coffee in now.  The paint on that one is starting to peel so it’s time for a new one!

Bath Bombs  – Part #1

And since it went fairly well, there will be a Part #2 lol.

I was really concerned when I started these.  I have read many horror stories about them disintegrating, not sticking together,  sticking to everything they aren’t supposed to and more! I will admit, I did have the sticking to everything problem… well, at least sticking to the molds!

May the 4th – Episode #2

“Truly wonderful, the mind of a child is.”  ,,,,, Yoda, Attack of the Clones

Do you like my “Episode” reference lol?  The space geek in me just can’t help it!  Do you have a favourite Star Wars Episode?

Apparently being such a space geek is hereditary.  Kim (and hubby) are both space and comic book nerds and Dillon is a semi nerd.  In his infinite wisdom one day, he admitted to me that he heard something on the radio one morning, a call in show, asking people to call in with their best Wookie impersonation.  He proceeded to tell me about how he had been practicing lol.  Not to call in, but just to see if he could do it!  I of course spread the story through out the family… again.  He has a habit of telling me embarrassing things he probably shouldn’t considering my sense of humour!!! Poor guy lol!

Ok, back to May the 4th…. today’s Episode will be making Pool Noodle Light Sabers!  Another very easy, kid friendly, Star Wars craft.  I am sure the kids would enjoy “battling” with these in nice weather…and in saying kids, I am not designating an age group!

May the 4th – Episode #1

“Difficult to see.  Always in Motion is the future.”        … Yoda

“MAY THE 4TH” BE WITH YOU….LOL.

I know, it’s pretty cheesy, but there are a lot of us self-proclaimed “Space Geeks” out there, and some of those Geeks will celebrate this occasion, especially this year with it being the 40th Anniversary of Star Wars!

Painting – Decorative Painting – Kim

I learned to paint a long time ago… well, I was given a few lessons from a friend who was a great decorative painter in exchange for dying her hair lol.  Her grandmother had just passed away and that was usually their thing, so I would have done it painting lessons or not.  I am so glad I didn’t pass on the lessons though.  It has opened my eyes to a whole other creative outlet.
