Happy Wednesday! Here we are experiencing a "new norm" in our lives. I am sure that navigating this norm is as hard for you as it is for us. I left school last Thursday for break looking to enjoy my much needed break. We were told that break could be extended, yesterday much to our surprise the governor of Kansas closed ALL schools till the end of the school year! Rest assured I will still be paid and will continue to receive my benefits, which is a relief. But we don't get to see our kids, our rooms and our coworkers. They are working on online learning for my kids not sure how that will look. No graduations or proms either! We had a mini family trip scheduled for earlier this week, that was canceled but Mr. Ken kept his days off. We got a couple of projects accomplished since we are isolating ourselves. On the positive side, I have some crafty fun to show you.
Facebook is bad, I joined a pg ad now have a bazillion craft ideas. This was one. Dollar Tree metal tub, lots of cotton balls and an Easter duck from the Easter tub. Love my duck in the tub. He is hanging out in the bathroom of course.
I have had these in my stash for awhile, at the time I bought them I had no idea what I wanted them for. Flashforward to a couple of weeks ago, on FB of course I saw a video of a gal making carrots out of hers. Ding ding that's what I'll do. So I did.
Ta Da, aren't they cute? Will add more to the tray when I get my Easter decorations out.
Here's one of the projects Mr. Ken and I finished yesterday. Before above.
After: I like the greenery but it is so hard to keep dusted and I wanted something fresh so we made a "lid " for the opening. Now the area is a bit more versatile. So with all this unexpected time off, surely the laundry will get caught up and other projects I want to do may get accomplished too. Wishing all of you the best as we travel this road together. Maybe blogging will pick back up! Ha! Ha! ~Keep on Dreaming~
I am Missouri born and bred but Kansas wed. Mr. Ken and I will be married for
20 years in Dec of "19! Time flies when you are having fun.
My job takes me back to elementary school where I work primarily with students with Autism and in the summer I play! During my playtime, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, crafting, cooking, reading, gardening and blogging to name a few. I also enjoy watching football both pro and college. Go TIGERS!
