Arts and Crafts Day

So we’ve recently moved into our new apartment. I’ve got my own studio ; a place where I can shut the door and hide the mess I make, because creativity can be messy and , boy, can I be messy! My husband can attest to that. I had a particularly creative day (you should see the state of my studio). First I decided that I needed a couple bookends, so that I could have my favorite reference books and magazines on my desk within reach. So off I went to the hardware store a couple blocks over and bought a couple paving stones.

Then while sitting at the new desk my dad made for me, I thought ‘I need a pencil holder.’ Of course it couldn’t be just any old pencil holder. So I went through our recycling bin and picked out a bunch of cans…and this is what I made with it….

This was a pretty productive day!
