I am Grumpy Cat in human form, and I HATE being like that!
So, just to cheer myself up, I'm doing a little photo dump. Yesterday I came home from school and was energized by the fact that it was FRIDAY and I didn't have to get up at o'dark thirty the next day!! I had enough energy to finally power drill the casters onto the Bambino's craft cart that I have gussied up. Last week we painted it with the perfect grey chalk paint, left over from a friend's bathroom vanity makeover. I made a vinyl stencil with my beloved Silhouette machine and painted the name of a relative from long ago who ran a European grocery import store in East Boston about 100 years ago, and then used the mod podge transfer technique to apply a vintage grocery graphic to one side. (Love the GraphicsFairy site! Go check it out!) The Bambino and I looked at vintage Italian advertising images and he picked a few of his favorites to slap on the sides next week.
The finishing touch was putting on the casters, which was ridiculously hard. (Or maybe it was just because . . . I was being Grumpy Cat?). At any rate, it got done, and then the BEST part was how long the Bambino wanted to spend drawing on the bottom of a crate with a Sharpie. Who knew that would be so utterly entrancing?!
Moral of the story: unexpected joy (Sharpie and a crate) can be granted even unto a Grumpy Cat in human form. Thank you, Lord!
