Still Crafty After 50
Cheryl Ball and I were on one of our local TV stations today with 9 recycling segments. There was plenty of prep work before our arrival at 5 a.m. this morning. Throughout the five hour show we teased, chatted, crafted and even got on camera doing stretches. I am soooooo tired!!!

We've been back at work for not even an hour and we've already gotten word that they want us back - GULP! next week for 9 new segments...

My favorite was making a fountain out of old records - it only takes 3-5 minutes for a record to melt in your oven at 200 degrees. Here's the link - it's the recycle material video

Or here's the same project on youtube

Another favorite project was silhouettes on plates - the instructions will be up soon!

Hey Chica,

I went back and posted the segment - it was a two part project and they only posted one, so you don't get the whole fountain 'experience'. Check out the youtube video for the ENTIRE story.

Love the picture of you!
