Maybe im not meant to be a 'crafter'

Here's a shot of Kelly at Rio after the March for Babies!Last week was kinda rough, so when I need to relax or clear my mind I go to Home Depot or Lowes to the lumber section. Something about the smell relaxes me. As I was walking through the isles planning for the table i want to make this summer, I found some 12" stakes and crafting ideas started popping in, making the previous thoughts vanish. I thought I could make a crafty like fence for the entertainment center spring look. So i got 7 stakes and sand paper. I looked at the hinges and they wanted a 1.00 apiece. This was supposed to be a cheap fence (the 7 stakes together were 1.75) So I scrapped them and went to Kelly for advice she said to use wire. I went to Roberts and found wire(2.00) but really wanted hinges so I looked there and they had them for .20 each!!!! Got home and spray painted, didn't really need the sandpaper, maybe next craft. As I started to assemble them I thought i would alternate the hinges, and the first two went by quickly but as I started with the 3rd that's where the fun started. So there are some with a few holes, but you really cant see them and at 11:30 last night I thought about spraying them again to give a finished look but I really didn't care.

this is where extra holes were made.

not paying close attention to which alternating spot or side to place them.

FINISHED !!!

The blister I got from the tiny screwdriver

I tried loading this picture several times, somethings up with Blogger.

if you really appreciate my ideas so much, why put that filthy, nasty picture of me on your blog?!? I think your share of the 'craft skills/supplies fee' just went up to $20!
