More than 3 reasons why I like the Number 3.
Sometimes 4 seems to be too many and two is not enough. 3 is just right.
I gave birth to 3 daughters.(not all at once)
3 is the “go to” number when accessorizing.
Earth is the 3rd planet in the solar system.
There are 3 options to the rock, paper and scissors game.
There were 3 bears; momma, papa and baby bear.
3 is a do-able number of small projects to do in thirty minutes.
Let’s go with the last reason for the sake of this post .
Recently, as I was looking over my stash of stuff in the basement,
I sensed some of my stuff glaring back at me, begging for a purpose,
longing to be pretty and useful. “sigh”
What’s a girl to do? I only had a limited amount of time. I had to choose wisely.
I did not have time for unruly projects. You know the kind …. starts out simple …. in fact you were told it would be simple by those giving the instructions. You were lulled into thinking you would produce a masterpiece in record time. And many hours later, your masterpiece has become a mess ter piece.
I could not deal with defeat today
Three candles…….. one clear vase…………. a beige speckled urn ……. and a 12″ by 12″ sheet of aged sheet music?????
Enough stuff for…. ummm……3 projects ?
Clock is ticking …….. 10 minutes on each project. Can I do it?
Project 1. Three old candles, varying heights, and craft sheet music paper.
Measure candles and cut paper sized to wrap around each candle.
(Using a paper trimmer gives me a much straighter edge than using scissors)
Pssss. My dark secret …I can not cut a straight line with scissors.
After wrapping candle with craft paper, secure with hot glue and tie with a piece of twine.
Finished with time to spare … I’m rockin now!
Project 2 ….. Glamorize the beige speckled urn using a can of white spray paint.
In no time ……………… really …… not kidding at all…..
I am not joking.……….. he he he
a beautiful centerpiece!!
Project 3 Change a non- descript clear vase into …… a sophisticated white vase with a clear stripe.
oops… long phone call while first coat of paint was drying. Forgot to look at clock.
Sprayed 3 coats total.. Without considering dry time ? … ten minutes for this project?
