I planted out my kitchen garden today. I bought some tin buckets at Ikea and they’re a great size for my little herbs. I made these mini signs from some balsa wood that I painted with chalkboard paint. I glued some pencils on the back. I think it would be a nice gift to make for someone, the little herb bucket with a couple of the signs.
I hope they survive the summer!
I’ve had these nativity scene pieces for a couple of years and I think they’re beautiful but they seemed a little lost without a roof over their heads. I found some bits of wood in the shed and started to botch something together. With a little help from my boy and my Dad we fashioned a mighty fine barn for baby Jesus and crew.
Mister E helped me make a little sheep from a dolly peg, some twigs, pipe cleaners and cotton wool. Then we made a star out of some twigs and twine. I love making things that are meant to look rustic and imperfect. The sheep was fun to do, I think we’ll make him a few friends.
