Crafeteria is here...

as is what appears to be some strange stomach virus-like thing. Cripes! Sighs, sips tea and clenches glutei. Which oddly enough rhymes with TMI.

At any rate, I'm no stranger to the Law of Sir Murphy...I should've known when my less than $10 display came out like this there'd be some turn of events!

Stubby beer bottle covered in leftover tulle from the gold themed X-mas bin and ribbon from a recent gift exchange. Glittery ball thingie NEW! Cost: $3.00. Twine bust also covered in same tulle and ribbon, bracelet pillow sewn by moi from corduroy and other cotton fabric scraps-Cost: FREE!

Last year's brass goblet and glass plate creations, polished and now seated atop the brass colored chargers from our dinner party 4 years ago. Cost: FREE! A runner made of more corduroy fabric scraps; I added the lace, a recycled embellishment from a recent purchase. Cost: FREE!

Last years's tablecloth, I removed the duct tape and put in an actual hem! Cost $3.00 for matching thread.

Now to do something with these jewelry making hands of mine, lest I scare the patrons! Wish me good health and luck for tomorrow!

If you are in the Phoenix area:

Crafeteria is at 10 W. Camelback Road, 6:00-10:00 PM




Peace and Indie love

i just learned via facebook that a cousin of mine and her children way in detroit are also dealing with some stomach virus drama. seems it's nation wide!

Well, well, well...you never know much about someone until you read their blog!!

You know me as Musty Boxes Ephemera, but really, I'm Gerushia's New World! My art and my vintage photos go hand in hand.

What I really want to note is the fact that you "unschool". I rarely come across someone who knows the difference between homeschooling and unschooling.

All three of my kids have learned naturally at home. My two boys did go to an old fashioned kindergarten and a few weeks of first grade. That was it for us. My daughter has never been to school. My sons are 21 and 20 and my daughter is 16.

I am almost giddy to hear that you are an unschooling and natural parenting family.
