The Chicken That Laid The Golden Eggs

It has been a really great week here in Cleveland, OH as we have had the best weather you could only dream of for March, and since the weather has been cooperating with temps in the high 70’s to 80’s, Mommy decided to pull out her Evolv Jigsaw and some wood and made some Easter crafts. 

First, she had an idea to create some “different” Easter eggs for decoration and bought a bag of those plastic eggs that you would fill with jelly beans for $1.99, and then she picked up a can of Rust-oleum Metallic Gold spray paint.  She opened them up and lightly sprayed each egg gold and after they were dry, she placed them in a nice decorative container with some moss.  Instant Easter charm for the table! 

 

Next, she took out some wood and cutout two different bunny shapes that she drew by hand and traced them on the wood.  Since her Evolv Jigsaw works beautifully and cuts through the wood like butter, she was able to make a stack of these bunnies with ease.  She then sanded them and spray painted them with Rust-Oleum Candy Pink.  The one bunny design actually stands on its own, so it was a perfect addition to a table top or bookshelf, the bunny face will hang on the front door adorned with a pink bow. 

So what do you think of Mommy’s Easter crafts?  As you can see, it has been a very crafty week over here and since the creativity has been flowing, Mommy decided to have some fun with some of my photographs too. 

I will be heading back outside later to soak up the sun and play with my toys!  How will you be spending your weekend?  What plans do you have?

Another Rainy Friday here in Cleveland, OH

TGIF, but what’s so good about it?  It’s raining here again, and everytime I go outside I get wet and then smell like a wet dog (well, that’s what I am, right?)  It seems that every time I need to head outside, it starts to pour.  So is it true when they say that when you “hear” water running, you have to pee?  I guess that must be the case, because I feel the need to want to go outside right when it is pouring the hardest.  Mommy has to dry me off with a towel when I come inside and wipe my paws to keep the wood floors clean, and I’m ok with that because I am used to it.  We started doing the wiping of the paws when I was a little puppy so it is just part of my routine now.  It’s kinda nice though, as Mommy always gives me hugs when she is wiping off my paws and I like that!  Aw, Mommy and Me time! 

Anyhow, as you can see from the photograph above, Mommy is at it again!  She is getting so proficient in using a hand jigsaw and has made some awesome items.  She has been so busy lately cutting wood tombstones as the orders keep coming in and her and Daddy are so excited that they had an idea to create these and now everyone wants one or more!   Since she has been working non-stop on these tombstones for weeks now, she put a lot of strain on Daddy’s jigsaw, and had to go out this week and get another jigsaw just in case the one she was using died on her in the middle of a project.  So, Mommy headed off to Sears Hardware and picked up a Craftsman Evolv Electric Jigsaw.  She saw it online for $29.99, and thought what a great price for a jigsaw, and read the reviews on it and they were all good.  The jigsaw has a 4.5 amp motor and has a lot of power and it comes with a metal edge guide, and the blades are easy to change as no tools are needed.  Mommy would definitely recommend this jigsaw to anyone who is looking for one. 

As for me today, I am taking it easy.  Since it’s raining outside, today would be a good day to nap all day.  I am trying to keep it on the down-low today because yesterday I got yelled at for the first time.  I accidentally pulled down the sheers and the curtain rod in the bedroom and boy oh boy was Mommy upset.  I was just jumping up on the window sill so I could look outside and I am still not sure how I pulled the sheers down, but it happened.  I made up with Mommy so we’re good.  Phew!   

I will keep you updated on the upcoming projects that Mommy will be working on as she has some great ideas for the upcoming holidays, like Valentine’s Day.  She is going to make some HUGE wood “X” and “O” to show your love with hugs & kisses that can stand on the floor or hung on the wall.  Keep watching to see what she comes up with! 

Keep dry & run between the raindrops today or you’ll smell like a wet dog, like me!
