I keep apologizing for not visiting my favorite blogs, but I have no way
to visit you unless you leave a comment. All my art blogs and their
icons are gone. I've left various questions on Blogger Help, but they
are not helping or helpful. I just appreciate your visit, and when I
get a comment from you, I will return the favor. Until then, I'm in the
dark. TRYING hard not to whine, but if this had happened any other
month, I would not be as stressed. After all, this month is all about
One thing we want is to shred our sensitive documents, so they don't get in the hands of thieves and scam artists who can use the information to order credit cards, buy automobiles, etc. But once you have shredded this information, where do you put it? Mostly, I use it around plants in my garden, but today I'm going to create a bird's nest.
I began with equal parts water and white PVA glue (Elmer's for those who live in the US). I have my gloves handy
because I don't want to have green hands when I'm finished. I added some of my handmade shimmering mist to the mix.
Like mixing flour and water, you add bits at a time until the mixture is consistent and holds together properly.
Instead of kneading, you will form the ball of papers with your gloved hands.
You ask why I call this part 1. It's because the nest must dry and I can't do anything to it until it does. Short and sweet, this is Day 9 of 22 leading up to bEARTHday and I used some shredded papers to make a bird's nest.
If you visited yesterday, you read that I dropped my camera and jammed the lens cap. I took it to Lawrence Photo and this is the kind man who saved my life.
OK, maybe not my life, but it sure felt like it at the time.
He took this photo before he handed the camera back to me. Apparently, this is his mascot. It just goes to show ANYONE can take a great photo with my camera.
I've become obsessed with this Wichita flag, ever since I learned about it. While driving all over Wichita, I've seen several of them.
Thanks again for your support. I am so, so sorry I'm having all these problems trying to find each of my friends I want to leave comments to. Please realize I'm doing everything I can think of to get my "Blogs I love to visit" back.
