There are few things better than being able to complete a task and say "Finally!"

CREATE Art Retreat in July, created by Elizabeth Nixon (above that lovely piece by Janet Briggs!):
Jodi Ohl at the same retreat:
Mary and I exchanged art journals one last time because an error in scheduling left us two spreads short in our Round Robin. When she returned my journal to me, I had these two new spreads to enjoy:
I always enjoy articles, blog posts, and pins about upcycling projects that turn "trash" into fabulous storage containers and display ideas. But whenever I try similar projects, they are a distinct "fail." For example, I've tried turning cereal boxes into magazine holders--a much-beloved upcycling project--and they really just turn into lopsided half-savaged cereal boxes that I've tried to shove my magazines into. Not a good look. But I managed a little upcycling project that actually pleases me....finally!
Now, as I leave these tasks behind, my daughter's sixth birthday party looms on Saturday. There is much gift wrapping, house decorating, and food preparing to be done in the next couple of days. When I get to the other side of it, I will share with you some photos of a what an Octonauts-themed birthday party is all about!
Enjoy the rest of your week!
