I'm basking in the glow that is my mom's visit! She is organizing my mason jar lids as I type ~ bliss! I'm also taking advantage of her bonding time with the kids to get a head start on some crafting projects I've had tucked away in the darker recesses of my idea book for ages now. One of them is a wall hanging to darken the kids' rooms from bright as day bedtimes and way too early wake ups. Right now we're using flannel blankets that's a little more shabby than the shabby chic I'm going for.
Now with jar lid sorting has been taken off of my daily to do list my brains have been freed up to come up with many, many more puns. I'm a pun making machine - a pundit. A corres-pun-dent. An entre-pun-eur. Which brings me to peel back and expose my latest nerdy layer. Are you ready for this? Brace yourself:
Have you ever heard of Fiverr? It's the place where people share what they would do for $5. Brilliant! I couldn't resist, I had to play along. I thought to myself while my mom was colour coding my tuperware containers; "hmmmmm... what could I offer for five bucks?" and so I listed my pun making services.
Yes, you too can have a punny blog post title for five bucks! Yes, I realize what an uber nerd I am but I always love a good pun challenge. We'll see who bites.
And here's my window cover about 80% complete. I still need to get at it with a felting needle to make the sun a bit sunnier. Ack, maybe I should just take a felting course... Wait a minute, my friend Nicole is offering a felting ecourse at the end of May!
Here is some more information that Nicole has sent my way:
Nicole used to run a weekly 'mama craft morning' where mamas would all gather with tea and babies and make sweet little things with natural supplies under her guidance. 'Magic Fairy Wool - online class' is an extension of those craft mornings.
In this class you will learn how to work with beautiful plant-dyed wool fibres, gently twisting and knotting them around themselves to create little birds and beasts and gnomes. You will also learn how to make a wool picture. This work does not involve any felting - wet or dry needle-felting - and is suitable for beginners and experienced crafters.
Nicole is excited to offer a reader a spot in the class (the hand-dyed by her mom wool may be purchased at her etsy shop: Lebenskuenstler.etsy.com)! Please leave a comment if you would like to be entered and I'll draw for the sweet spot on Monday morning. I hope you really needle a felting class these days. Ha! Get it?
True Random Number Generator 21 That's you Cynthia ~ congratulations and have fun! Thank you everyone and your entries were so pun to read :)
