No, I have no idea where all our forks have gone

I should know better than to go to any kind of craft show. Or rather, I should just give myself permission to burn up the credit card buying one of everything that catches my eye. Because I’m gonna end up spending at least that much trying to recreate all the cool things I saw when I get home. Probably closer to double, because in addition to materials, I can guarantee I’ll have to buy at least one weird tool per project, and before all is said and done, I’ll have to go back for extra materials because the thing didn’t turn out quite like I remembered on the first try.

So, dearest hubby, if you notice one of those Victorian warming pans you were planning to sell at the antique fair has disappeared from your inventory, and we are running out of forks faster than usual, then you’re probably also going to find a new soldering iron in the tool chest. And hopefully a cute turtle garden ornament in the front flower bed. You’ve been warned.
