What Have I Been Up To?

My newest project is a tire garden. I had old tires donated to me, which is a bit tricky because they are all different sizes. I had to prop some up to make it more level. Now I just need three more cans of paint, one more board, and start filling with dirt. Three tires already have stuff planted in them. I will show the final result, when it is finished. I am still working on the crochet wall hanging for the fire dept, here where we live. I have not decided, yet, how I am going to do the logo. I have never crocheted a logo before, so it could be interesting. I took about 400 pictures yesterday, of my resin pieces, and jewelry. I got some really good shots. I did get to sand some of my pieces, to last night, and will have new pieces in my Etsy store soon. That is what I have been up to. How about you?

Because we homeschool, learning to recycle and upcycle is a fun way to learn about the environment. Thank you!

That looks like such a fun project! What will you plant in them? Taking hundreds of pictures is something I do too. I tend to be a bit picky when it comes to photos. It's crazy bc I only end up using like, five or six out of them all. Have a great wknd!

I know me too, lol! It is hard to get good pictures without a really expensive camera, especially for shots of small or fine things like jewelry.

So far I have a Christmas Cactus in one, and Bleeding Hearts in two others, but they don't seem to be doing so hot. It is still early though. I have not decided yet what to put in the others.
