My friend just started modellen fotografie and she has seemingly had her nose in the air since she started. It is funny how when people get a sudden boost in their ego, they also get an even larger boost in their attitude towards others. I have tried numerous times to contact her about our weekly night out, but apparently she has bigger and better plans with the camera. Although I am happy that she is accomplishing her life long dream, I am also rather angry that she is turning her cheek to me. I never thought she would end up as rude as she has, but I guess nothing in life goes as planned. I am just hoping that she will realize how great our friendship is, sooner rather than later.
Creating privacy for your outdoor play time – October 15th, 2013
Some parents, myself included, worry about allowing our kids outside to play alone. Even playing in the back garden, if you don’t have a wall or screen your kids can attract the attention of people who may want to harm them. That’s why my husband and I decided we were going to create a private and safe space for our kids to play. Away from the prying eyes of strangers. The use of green screensdid that for us in no time.
A green screen is nothing more than an instant hedge that can be purchased at many garden centers. We chose purple beech trees that we planted all the way around our back garden. We chose them tall enough to already give some privacy, but they had grown and thickened in just a few weeks that our kids were soon able to play outside in complete privacy and safety.
A tabletop solution – September 16th, 2013
After breaking the glass top on a small patio table I decided to replace it with a craft. This is partially because I am cheap but more because I wanted something more unique. Rummaging though the garage I had my idea. I was going to use decorative aggregates and a quick setting concrete.
This was one of the easiest crafts I have done. I used the metal from from the old tabletop as a frame. I set it on a partial sheet of foam. Then I used the aggregates that had large flat side and arranged them in a pattern, flat side down, on the foam and surrounded by the mold. Then I just added my concrete and left it to dry and cure. In two days it was ready and when I flipped it over I had a beautiful, unique table top that can stand the weather and rough guests!
