    Sun prints revisited 

    Sun prints revisited.

    This is my nomination for the best craft of summer. Great idea for family on hot days or for vacation bible school, any kind of kids’ camp. There is a link to the “how to” on the post.

    Hope you will check out this reblogged tutorial posted on a Tuesday, especially if you like crafting and art fun with children. This blog has a great amount of fun stuff.

    Pinstrosity and Fire Pots. 

    Have you ever heard of Pinstrosity? Well if you have not it is a great site for the rest of us that do not, a lot of the time, get our Pinterest DIY ideas to work or look at all like the photos or the promises made. It helps the self esteem to know you are not alone.

    Any way I made a little fire pot for the 4th and I cannot complain too much since unlike many flops on the site, I improvised with my materials. Like many on the site, it was not a total flop though, just not as nice as expected or not as perfect.

    The fire pot did light for me. It was not hard to light. It did not shoot up and cause any emergency room visits. It also did not stay lit long enough to do a smore like they are supposedly set up to do. I really did not make it for that anyway. It was just a simple fun thing to do for the day.

    I am sorry, my photos did not turn out to show it. This is what happens when a kid takes them, it happens too quickly to get the photo and you have a Cheapo camera that does not do well after dark.

    Thoughts on a Thursday- Firepot for the 4th. 

    fire pot 001

    fire pot 002

    I am not sure how this will work when I light it tonight since I used several directions and what I had. Will it light? I just hope the lighter fluid keeps from exploding. I had no charcoal which most of these called for. See what happens. Stand Back. I know nothing about using lighter fluid.
