I was rooting around in my front yard the other day and noticing something. We have a landscaping crew as part of the HOA in our neighborhood, and they just recently trimmed the bushes and trees.
What I noticed is that although trimming was done – there were two things out of place. First, they didn’t trim my Japanese maple . . . and second, they left all the trimmings behind!
I started collecting everything to leave them a pile in a corner of the front yard, which they are good about picking up whenever I do it. I also started trimming the maple and adding to the pile.
IT WAS THEN that I realized . . . I might not want to throw all of the refuse into a pile for the landscapers. There are some good twigs and branches here that I can do something with!
And such is the life of a crafter. We probably keep things we shouldn’t. And then one day, 15 years down the road when we are organizing our craft supplies, we find those twigs.
“What was I keeping these for again?” you say to yourself.
The great news is that you’re not going to end up in that situation, because I have some twig crafts for you to do. And you can do them now, before you end up shoving the sticks into your stash for down the road.
The twigs I collected are pretty long and I’m going to make a painted stick bouquet (#8 in the list below). I’m letting them dry out a little bit now, then I’m going to paint them. I’m very excited!
