I’m trying to motivate myself into blogging more often. I have become quite the slacker in recent months. Ok, so I’ve always been a slacker (a preemptive SHUT UP to my brothers who probably don’t even know I HAVE a blog…), but I haven’t taken the time to post here at badlycrafted.com that I should have in recent months.
So what made me blog today? A 5 Hour Energy drink along with a bottle diet Mt. Dew for starters. And then my friend, Sarah, did something clever and I thought I’d share it.
I’m always looking for ways to ‘art’ things up. And most of the stuff that people take for granted (as in “oh I’ve been doing that forever!”), I’ve never thought of. Anyway, I’m rambling here…why don’t you people stop me from rambling? And by people I mean my mom because she’s probably the only person that still reads this blog (hi Mom!).
Ok so Sarah put up something on FaceBook and I asked her for pictures so I could share it here because I just thought it was very clever. She took an old Altoids tin and made it into a purse-sized first aid kit. She’s been bitten by the modge podge bug in the act of doing this. Welcome to the addiction, Sarah…soon you’ll be searching for things and reasons to use modge podge. Oh hey, btw, I found a recipe for making homemade modge podge. I’ll have to make some and test it and if it works I’ll share it here at badlycrafted.com.
Here’s what Sarah made (and yes she knows I’m putting this up here. I only ambush Than with non-permission type posts here):
So cute and clever! Makes me want to go buy Altoids and make one myself. I like the cute little graphics she put on the top. I’d probably mess it up trying to add fake fur and something sparkly. I’m seriously going to do this though.
Thanks Sarah for such a clever idea and a reason to break out the modge podge (and for letting me put it up here). Its an addiction that never goes completely away, you just run out of things to use it on. LOL I’m trying to convince G that I need to modge podge things onto his computer monitor. He’s not buying it. Party pooper thy name is G!
So now that Sarah is into the whole MP thing, I wonder….we could be MP buddies. Randomly MPing things… Until one day we take it too far…like how I’m about to go off into one of my weird (yes I realize I’m weird. I own that) “what if” rants….
Newscaster: “…and finally, police have caught the ‘alleged’ criminals who’ve been modge podging things all over the Valley. The crime spree started small with city STOP signs having “…in the name of love…” glued underneath the word STOP on the signs and progressed until Police cars were being covered in flower wallpaper and pages from Martha Stewart Living magazine. Apparently one of the criminals is obsessed with that magazine.
As the criminals, two Valley women, were being led away in handcuffs the short, smurf-like one was screaming, “BUT we were just trying to make things PRETTY!”. We’re told that a psych evaluation will need to be done on that one. The other criminal gave a bit of trouble as well when she started yelling, “Don’t you know who I am? I’m THE NEW BOX TOP FAIRY! I’M FAMOUS I TELL YOU…FAMOUS!” Both women appear to have been breathing in too many modge podge fumes for far too long.
We’ll keep you up to date as more is learned about this bizarre crime spree.”
Sarah will never speak to me again after this one….
