Crafty inconsequential randomness in all its glory

I totally forgot....
...to share our papier mache lanterns, didn't I? I got a wild thought not too long ago, after seeing this post from Kleas, to make some papier mache lanterns for our new back porch.
Of course, me being me, this consumed me for several hours.
They did look pretty drying on the laundry line however. Like our own little hot air balloons. Unfortunately I forgot two of them on the line that night and woke up to them lying on the ground in soppy piles because the sprinklers got to them. Note to self: DO not leave papier mache drying outside overnight.
But I do think they turned out pretty cool. And even look nice in the afternoon sunshine.
Ross also strung up some little outdoor lights to bunch up inside the lanterns.
Ahhhh...it does the soul good to get your fingers sticky sometimes.
Wife to a VERY understanding man (even if he does roll his eyes and duck back into his garage way too much); mother to three maniacs,crafter, professional volunteer, crazed maniac in her own right...yep, that about covers it for now.
It's about crafts, family, gardening, life....really whatever the heck I want to talk about. I am wordy, messy, opinionated, disorganized, lacking in focus, manic, craft obsessed...and pretty much this all spills out on the pages of this blog. You've been warned!
