Oh, YES She CAN-CAN!

canpin1You know how it is. You’re at your computer, gazing over the hundreds, nay, thousands of nifty projects on Pinterest, pinning and pining away. You have the best of intentions, but deep in the back of your mind, you know:

You will probably never, ever get around to actually doing any of them.

That is, unless you’re Julie! For, BEHOLD! One day she thought to herself, “I need a scarecrow for my garden!”

And she went to her favorite site for such things. And she found:

“Hmm,” she said to herself with her tinkly voice as sweet as any fairy’s. “I need to make this for free! What to do?”

So she put her thinking cap on. ‘Tis a wee, pointy thing, with ear flaps*. It worked. “A-HAH!” she cried! And she went dumpster diving. And LOOK WHAT SHE MADE!

And thusly shall Julie’s crops remain safe and free of crows.

As I admired her handiwork, I lamented that I never seemed to get any projects done like she did. Julie pointed out the dolls that I sew for. That made me feel better. Julie is kind.

Speaking of Kind, thank you all for your sweet words regarding the loss of my pet yesterday. They truly helped and were much appreciated.
