OK, it probably seems like i'm not really doing anything related to my march challenge - the little free library. and that was kinda true for a while, but mostly because i felt overwhelmed with the construction part (which in my brain equated to the non-creative part...actually it felt like a math problem and i'm really bad at math) and what i wanted to think about was the decorating part. plus i wanted to create something cool for my dear friends...duh!
simply: decorating = art/fun. building = stress/the chance of screwing up fairly badly.
but wait! i found out that my awesome cousin cindy (props to relatives) freaking LOVES to build things and has offered to help me follow the plans (found at the little free library website) to construct a library that ahnna and bob will not be too embarrassed to have in their yard. well, hopefully they will like it after i do the decorating part AKA "sara flair"!
so to recap:
this is where the tiny free library is going to go...minus the snow.
this is ahnna and a cabinet we are not going to use in the construction. psych.
we have a build date set and i have decorating ideas percolating in my head! plus, now with cindy's help, i'm really excited to see how this project is going to come together.
stay tuned, yo!
on an randomly related note, when visiting ahhna, her family decided to adopt the creature from my february project. (which had been living in the backseat of my car!) they have gone on to name it "mokiki" and i could't be happier. live long and prosper mokiki!
