Day 228 – A bit of utilitarian creativity today. My daughter loves her (cheap Target) comforter but it is too thin for cold nights. So I sewed a top sheet to the back, leaving a slot at the bottom, to make it into a duvet cover that will hold a down comforter. (Taken with Instagram)

Day 237 – How hard can it be to create a magnetic chalkboard to cover the ladder on my toddler’s bunkbed? The chalkboard paint was a lumpy mess, so I sanded and sanded and sanded – and sanded. The end result is a magnet board with a distressed patina. (Taken with Instagram)

Day 189 – Altered an XL t-shirt into a bolero. I just cut and tied the sleeves to create the fringe. (Taken with Instagram)
