Is there Life Everafter for Cardboard???

Today, I spent the day altering the space ship that I made for the Space Age party last Saturday. I was wondering "now where can I store this stuff?!!! (actually, I didn't even think about that part till Mr. Fabulous asked the same question when he saw me making all of it...) and then I thought about the grand kids play room... The family before us had a little boy and they painted his room an eggshell blue, and painted the ceiling a very dark royal blue and then glued glow-in-the-dark stars all over. At first I thought about re-painting but that was way down on the priority painting list, so I kept it that way. I had been collecting old globes, so I went with a "world" theme by putting up maps of the earth on the walls. So, there you go.
A few of the robots got a second chance too. We'll see how long they last.......

Adorable! Thanks for your visit and comment, are you going to enter the contest? Last chance to enter is suppose to be midnight tomorrow night, but I probably won't do anything with the post till Saturday morning so last minute entries are going to be accepted till I post. Have you visited the Scouting Web Craft resources? http://www.scoutingweb.com/scoutingweb/Program/CraftsGeneral1.htm It's where I learned some pretty neat stuff, when I was a scout assistant leader.

So cute. By the way, where were you storing all that stuff during New Beginnings? I didn't see a sign of it anywhere :)

I am counting the days until I finally take "the tour". I hear that some calesthentics ahead of time isn't a bad idea. The fact that I am the last person on Planet Earth (and apparently the Universe) to take this tour still stymies me.

See you next week!
