Click on the picture above for additional Day 16 creative goodness!
I had every intention of posting yesterday. Mother Nature had other ideas.
We were in the line of storms that brought 60+ mile an hour wind gusts through as colder air pushed our way. When the rain hit it was going sideways. Shortly thereafter, this tree that’s been on the property forever & a day snapped. I’m not sure Bob & Bob (our double composting bins) survived.
Luckily (or maybe not) it missed our old chicken coop which is falling apart.
And there’s more! The electricity went out. It was out for 7 hours! Part of the problem was a couple of houses down the road a pole was leaning badly.
We bought a generator earlier this year due to the electricity going out during a bad rainstorm & water poured into the basement through the sump pump crock! But enough of that! Here’s what I managed to finish up today.
Ultimately, I used puffy paint (I could only find white) to create corn. Puffy paint doesn’t get as puffy as I thought it would.
I’m not as happy as I would be with the corn kernels, but I’ve spent way longer on this darn thing than I intended.
Next up, I put a few splats of paint on the Gourd Trouble Doll.
That’s all I’ve got to report from the Flatlands of NW Ohio. I hope your day/evening is full of awesomesauce!
