What the hell is it about quarantine that makes me want to get crafty?
I am NOT a crafty person. My art skills pretty much stop at the preschool level.
I usually scoff at repurposing old shit to make art. But here I am – 6 soup cans deep in making tin lanterns.
Don’t worry – I have zero plans to open an Etsy store and even if craft fairs were still happening, I am not that ambitious. You are completely safe from me trying to sell you anything!
I love arts and crafts. I do. I have just never really been that type of person. I feel like if I can buy it already made, why do it myself?
I’m just SO FRIGGING SICK of laundry.
And school work.
And we live in Ohio. So even though it’s Spring – the weather is acting like it’s going through menopause. One day it is sunny and warm – the next, it’s low 50’s and our heat has to be turned on.
So, I suppose with how cooped up I’ve been, getting my crafty bitch on was inevitable at some point.
I’m actually proud, though. I’ve started making things that I never dreamt I was capable of.
Shout out to my hubs for teaching me how to use some tools I needed!
And my lanterns look good!
I’m feeling an awesome sense of accomplishment that I haven’t felt in forever. I swear to God, I was in tears after the first one came out so nice.
Quarantine has turned me in to one crafty, sappy, blubbering bitch.
With that in mind – it is not lost on me that your 10 year wedding anniversary is “tin.”
…I scoured Pinterest to find a tin craft that could be an anniversary gift to the hubs. Something I could use my new skills to make.
I did find an idea.
I tried and failed miserably.
I guess I’ll stick with lanterns for now.
