Somehow, I recently ended up becoming the proud owner of a nearby friends craft stash declutter. Why he had 763,286 craft (popsicle) sticks in the first place…I dont know. But when he said “Do you want them”? Naturally, I Said “Um, yeah”! Of course I wanted them. It doesn’t even matter that I had no clue what I would do with them, but that doesnt really matter. She who has the most craft crap, is truly happiest.

I’ve always wanted to learn to weave. When I was in elementary school an elder from the Navajo Nation came to our school and taught us how to weave. While I kind of remember sone of the basics, I do need a refresher. Of course, this one isn’t being taught by an elder from one of the Navajo Nations, but it does involve popsicle sticks and I seem to have an abundance of those. So that’s what we are going with today.
