I usually have at least 10 projects that I either just started, am half way finished with, have supplies for and haven’t started yet, or am thinking about at any given moment. I have so many ideas and things I want to do but nothing gets done when I only get to work in nap length periods at a time and Coop just learned this great new trick where he only naps for 30 minutes at a time and wakes up at 6:30am ready to P A R T Y. So yeah, there’s that.

Anyways, my kitchen table has been littered with an almost complete pinata, a thrifted birdcage destined for the flower bed, a hot glue gun, and fabric scraps, for longer than I’m ready to admit. I don’t have a lot of space around here so the kitchen table usually turns into craft town anytime I need to get something done. And lately nothing’s getting done! I’m a girl all about lists, so when I’m adding more to the to do’s then I’m actually doing I just feel off. I need to cross things off that damn list. It’s good for my soul. So when I found a little tin at the thrift store with birds and flowers and other old lady things that make my heart sing hiding behind too many mismatched coffee mugs, I knew exactly what I was going to do with it. It was a project I could start and FINISH in the same day. That almost never happens anymore.

It was easy, it’s cute, it smells good, and most importantly… it’s done! Take that, list!
