|Another clock refashion.|
Yesterday was a hard day. It started out great. Saturday had been super-productive and had gone smoothly. We had accomplished everything on our to-do list and were feeling good about life.
Church was good. The worship was uplifting and the service was the sharing of various short-term mission groups that we sponsored this summer.
On the way home from church. I scraped the mail box when I backed into the garage (I back in every day multiple times...sight). Now we have another nice dent in the car. We came in. Hubs and I were tense and the girls were excitable. We hear a crash in K's room. The bed that we put together for her yesterday collapsed (for the record we discovered that it was a design flaw and hope to get it the company we ordered the rails from to do something about it).
While getting ready for lunch. I spilled a full glass of iced tea - that was the moment when we knew we needed to laugh.
Last night we had a picnic for the parents of students so that we could get to know each other and the teacher. My camera began to have issues (I had noticed some things while doing a photo shoot on Saturday but attributed them to other things). Turns out my shutter needs repair. :(
However, by the time the girls went to bed and Tim and I talked over the day we were able to calmly decide what we wanted to do and make a plan and even be at peace about all things. :)
The clock at the top of this post was tricky. I wanted to glue the face in because I had to remove the rubber seal when I disassembled the face. Unfortunately, that led to some weird things and it took several attempts and the scraping of glue to accomplish.
Of course, now it is glued in, I am not changing it. However, I am not sure about the light green seed beads I interspersed with the ivory. What do you think?
I will be sharing this at:
