To make mistakes is human; to stumble is commonplace; to be able to laugh at yourself is maturity.

New Bike Basket

My daughter's poor, poor bike basket was so SAD!! It was torn and over used. She can keep some pretty funky stuff in there and I can't see it to throw it out. For almost a week, she had an OLD apple from the neighbor's apple tree in there, I didn't know it until I saw it smooshed up against the side - YUCKO!! That was the actual motivating factor in getting rid of this "thing".

I found this basket in my garage while cleaning it out. At first it was in the donation pile, then I had a better idea! Spray paint it and replace her old bike basket/gross plastic holder-thing!

It was really easy to do, just spray paint and use some Velcro strips to adhere to her bike. The can of paint didn't have as much paint as I thought so there are some bare spots. She didn't care though.
It is a perfect size for her doll! We had a great ride while walking the dog!

Thanks for looking.

Wine Coasters

I created a couple new coasters with wine sayings. Hoping to sell them in a crafty store nearby. (Cross your fingers!) Made 2 sets to display at the store. I know a couple of them are the same sayings, couldn't find additional sayings to replace all 4. Anyone know where to get more cute/funny sayings?
This last one is just for me! I thought this was pretty funny. Most days neither the house nor me look good!!
The back of each coaster gets a cork backing. Just in case anyone was wondering what I did to the back of each one. Very easy to apply, just use my favorite Mod Podge to adhere. Love that stuff!
Thanks for looking!

Have a great day.
