My God is a Big Green God

I know that title sounds like something I may have overheard from my pre-schooler, but it isn’t. It’s something that’s been on my mind lately. How God isn’t intimidated by junk. He is the greenest God out there with His dedication to the three r’s: R…

Tiny Tin Can Topiary Tutorial

Been making stuff again. This is actually one of the simplest things ever and could easily be a child’s craft. It literally took five minutes to do the basics of this thing. It would take a child longer, and you’d have to do the glue gun part, but st…
