The first step of any crafty undertaking is to gather your supplies.
|Not pictured: excessive amounts of LaCroix|
|Sam, all tuckered out|
|Erica is normally really good at math. Today was not a normal day.|
|Dharma Mojo: the aftermath|
|Coffee: breakfast, lunch, and dinner of champions.|
Now, time for serious stuff: painting! Kids, always use spray paint in a well-ventilated area. Unless you live in Michigan and it snows all the time, then go ahead and start painting in your basement.
|Small basement, very little fresh air. This might be a bad idea...|
To keep busy between coats of paint (and to make sure your brain doesn't fry from the paint fumes), start working on your sewing projects! And remember, it's always good to wash, dry, and iron all fabric before cutting and sewing.
|Action shot! Look at those moves!|
|This fabric is so beautiful, it would be a sin not to sew it into our new tablecloth!|
If you've been sitting in one place too long, try to sneak in some quick cardio to get the blood pumping.
|Pinning, sewing, and hemming like a boss.|

Since that's done, maybe time for another coat of paint?
|Too much paint, not enough fresh air.|
Then test drive the table cloth. Is it up to your exact specifications?
|Is it an inexpensive Halloween costume?|
|... or a people eating monster?|
