I'm feeling Crafty!

I have to work Sunday. A double shift on a quiet weekend would be 16 hours to build shit.
I'm thinking that won't go over too well. What a waste.
I have a couple of ideas in the works and I need to find the time. Next Thursday Olivia is having some teeth pulled so I took the day off. I know that she will feel like crap but maybe keeping her busy will help.
I was dumping some old clothes in the bin in the center of town, while there I found 3 sets of small shutters leaning up against it. Oh no, these need a good home! I wasn't sure at the time what to do with them but now I think I am going to make some outside decorations and try to use the pots the girls made. Over the years I keep getting small plants with pots that are painted by the girls. Unfortunately they have died or moved to bigger homes so what do you do with those cute little pots? Recycle baby.
My plan is to paint the shutters in different colors and mount the pots on them with a clamp. I think I may also need to buy some sealant to spray over their paint so it doesn't wash off in the rain. Again, I am a self taught crafter as you can see so I am guessing at this point.
Add flowers and Viola we are done. I will definitely add my own photos but this is the gist.

Listen people, I have a drill and I am not afraid to use it. I should add, I barely know how to use it so I am also a bit dangerous, be warned.
