Getting my craft on!

So... in case you are wondering I got my camera fixed.  Now don't laugh too hard... my rechargeable battery was dead. AND... the charging station had an extra one in it that I didn't know about.  It took the young-looking guy about 5 seconds to figure it out - even though he "has never seen one of these cameras and their store doesn't sell them and the technology is probably outdated and I'd be better off buying a better camera if this battery died again". Ummm...Yeah... thanks young-looking-guy, i'll try to revive the dead money tree in the backyard this weekend.

Anyhoo, now that I have a camera again, let's get back to blogging.

Yesterday, while I was trying to keep little A out of the mud-pit called a backyard, we went to my fave dollar store.  We picked up a couple of things...

And then I put my almost 4 year old cutie patootie to work. 

I took the the floral foam and cut it to fit the terra cotta pot and took apart grass thingies (about 5 bunches) and cut them down to the size that I wanted.  And then little A started sticking them on.  It took him long enough for me to drink my tea and watch the Y&R- about an hour of silence!  In case you are wondering... my kids love it when I put them to "work".

Here's the finished product.  The total project cost about $8.00 (plus tax).

Not bad for an almost four year old, huh? 

Hopefully next week I'll be able to post about my backyard, but for now here's a quick pic of my front yard. 

And that's just one side!  The other side has about 5 more construction trucks, diggers and bobcats.  I can't even park my soccer-mom-van in the driveway.  They've promised that everything will be done by next Wednesday!  Kids finish school on Tuesday... I need more craft ideas!!!
