burnt fingers.

1. Yay for technology! Jared and I digitally spent the morning as he was sick and forced to call in.2. A friend whom I owe many favors bought this 1970's box-frame with a butterfly and wheat-y things in it. She asked if I could it make acceptable to hang on her wall.
First, I had to tear the wheat stuff out.Then I had to figure out what to do with all of the torn parts on the matting. I don't typically pursue crafts and even feel I lack an aesthetic eye for it, but I dutifully pulled out the ol' glue gun and my bag of buttons. Hopefully this is crafty-cute? I'm not fully certain...

Laura, you should see the stuff i've been doing with my insects. . . I just finished a piece that has butterflies and keys. . . The buttons are a good idea.

I love it! Now I want to use buttons too. It looks wonderful. You should definitely pursue it more :)

Isn't technology great? I remember chatting with Daniel for 2 whole years! Crazy huh?
