Day 9 of AEDM

Click on the picture above for additional Day 9 creative goodness!

So, I skipped day 7 & 8.  I knew weekends would be the difficult days to show up.  I’m trying to fit lots of things in a day & welp, the weekends are usually for extra projects that need doing around the house.

This weekend we cleaned the chimney & furnace.  The weather was in the high 70’s, unusually warm for these parts & perfect to get ‘r done.

I am DIRTY!  The Hubs doesn’t look near as dirty as I do, however, I will vouch that he was just as covered in the stuff.  For those that are wondering, we have a dual furnace that burns both propane & wood.  When the wood goes out, the propane kicks in.  It’s saved us a pretty penny over the years as The Hubs gets free wood from work.  It took quite a few scrubs to get all that off.  I’ve made a mental note that no matter how comfy a tank top is, it’s not a good thing to wear when cleaning chimnies or furnaces.

Today, I worked the Queen of The Cafeteria Ladies crown.  I’m so close to being finished!

I added Aileens Tacky Glue to the Modge Podge & acrylic brown paint mix to give it some layer & more drip texture.  I’m sad to report that as it’s dried, it has flattened out & didn’t look near as good as it does when first applied.  Oh well, the gravy is done.  I placed the corn kernels into the wet stuff & we’ll see how well they stick tomorrow.

And, every self-respecting Queen must have a scepter to go with her crown, eh?  Well here’s what I came up with:


Here is a close-up of the flies, because I can. They are so gross but look good which is a strange thing I never thought I’d ever ever type in a sentence but here we are and it’s 2020 so what do ya expect?

That’s all I’ve got to report for today. I’ve got to figure out how to squeeze some time in tomorrow as there’s a lot going on. Have a super evening or morning or pleasant dreams if you’re still a snooze in dreamland, which ever the case may be!

  1. Wow. I thought I had it rough mopping my basement studio floor. You had it much worse. Thankfully, you had help.

    Your lunch lady crown is turning out great and the scepter is a HOOT!!! This is going to be so much fun, especially when you present it to her.

    I apologize for being so late visiting. It’s been a very busy two days here, too. So glad you had time to be out in the warm weather. It’s turned cold here and I suspect by now it has in your area, too.

    OH, meant to say you and hubby could pass for chimney sweeps. 🙂
