Arts and Crafts for Crazy Old People!

When things get boring around here, it only takes a couple people to dream up something.

Such was the case earlier this week. Lee and Karen had gone to the store and purchased craft supplies with a specific project in mind. Once home, they laid it all out on Lee’s picnic table and talked some of us into participating.

As I’ve told you before, it doesn’t take much to entertain us :)

Jolene, Karen, Lee and Karen Q hard at work. A ribbon here, a jewel there…

We had several visitors stop by to see what we were up to. One of them said, “What is this? Arts and crafts for crazy old people?” She was right on the money :)

You’ve all heard of the redneck wine glasses that have become so popular recently. Well, we took it a step further. We created Red Solo Cup Redneck Wine Glasses!

No, we weren’t drinking! But we sure were laughing!

Behold, our wonderful works of art :)
