A lil saying is coming to mind!!!!

Oh yes it is...the saying "It's raining, it's pouring, the old man is snoring" HeHe and he really is too. He loves to sleep in (when he can) when there's a storm outside and MAN OH MAN is it ever storming. Way too wet to go outside so what better way to spend the morning than to snuggle down and sleep, sleep, sleep. Of course, some of us just can't do that (muah for one) but it is to wet to go outside so for me.....well.....I'm going to snuggle down and READ.

I thought for YOU...since you're here anyway....that I would link up some of my old post on "How To" things that you might want to do. I the weather's bad or you are just looking for something to do with your hands. (working with your hands.....therapy in it's best form)

So let's get started and I hope you find one or two that you will like and hopefully want to try. The first one is for those old belts just "hanging" (hehe) around. You can make some really cute wristlet with them that can be worn by male or female. I made some for teenagers and both genders loved them.

If you are one that would like to try making a clay character yourself then here's my "How To" on making hands for one. It's a simple way and one that works really well for me. I hope this helps you want to perhaps try to make a character of your own. I guess I need to do one on making a head...hehe. There are some really good ones you can find on google. 

Now this is one for Christmas but it's still one I wanted to share with you. It's "How To" make a reindeer. I made these a few years ago for the Chazman's classmates one year and they LOVED them. I still have some of them come up to me and tell me they still wear them. Makes my heart feel so good.

So there's a few for you to try and if you would like a few more just take a wander under the old Southern Ooaks tree. I'm sure something will catch your eye. Have a wonderful Saturday and come back again real soon.

Until next time.........Hugs,
