Stain Glass Craft

Submitted by: Ashley

Materials: Paint, glass, tape

My 7-year-old is bored out of her mind. She has been “homeschooled” and I have tried to find different crafts to do weekly to keep her entertained. This was our stain glass window project. We used washable paint and painters tape to create our designs.

Bidet Saves the Day

Submitted by: Melissa

Materials: Ceramic, electricity, water

Until recently I barely used our washlet—maybe once a week. It had been my husband’s idea to install one when we moved into our mid-century home. Of course now, with our dwindling tp supply, it’s bidet to the rescue. And it actually forces me sit and contemplate.

Crisis puppy Toby + local need for masks = Toby on facemasks

Submitted by: Bertis Downs

Materials: Facemask made of dishcloth, screen-printed and hand-sewn by people here locally in Athens GA

We got a new family puppy, a crisis puppy. She’s a Beernesedoodler named Toby and she was so cute I thought she’d be an excellent facemask model. So I asked a local screenprinter and a local seamstress to help me out and a few days later, here’s the mask. So far I am the only one I have seen wearing one but they might catch on anytime

My Essentials Survivor Kit

Submitted by: Ronette

Materials: Gloves, mask, tissues, thermometer, corn cushions, lidocaine

I am not on a stay-at-home-order because I am in the healthcare profession.  I love what I do not matter what the situation. My isolation is my work. I would have it no other way.

I Miss my Mommy

Submitted by: Yang

Materials: Clay sculpture, fresh cut bloom

Monkey Mama Sculpture from Taiwan alongside fresh bloom from Mom’s backyard in Fremont, CA- cut & given to me the night she left 3/30/20. After 42 years in California, we sent Mom back to Taiwan for safety from COVID19. It’s a huge relief to know she’s in a country with zero new cases for 2 days now, but we miss her terribly. Couldn’t even hug her goodbye at the airport. Her zodiac sign is a monkey.
