Blowing in The wind

Yes, how many years can a mountain exist
Before it's washed to the sea ?
Yes, how many years can some people exist
Before they're allowed to be free ?
Yes, how many times can a man turn his head
Pretending he just doesn't see ?
The answer my friend is blowin' in the wind
The answer is blowin' in the wind.

Today's craft challenge for Her Craft Krea8tions was to make something that "blows in the wind". Each design team member received beads, chimes, nightmare fishing line, a jingle bell, and a twirly thingie dooie (that's a technical term!). Everyone was encouraged to add things from their stash to make it their own and to go "green" without buying anything additional!!!!

With this all being said, everyone and the fishing line were not on "speaking terms". Lynne Kirsh had knots galore and would give up and pitch it and her one cat would return it expecting her either to throw again or finish ... your guess is as good as her's! Several never ever want to see fishing line again!!!!! Thus, the grand prize will be 100 yards of fishing line .... ha ha, just kidding!!!! It will be a surprise package to one lucky recipient that remarks on everyone's stop along the way!
I would love to show you beautiful wind chimes hanging from a tall weeping willow tree in the middle of a peaceful lush green landscape....Yep I'd love to but it's not gonna happen, because first of all I dont live near anything like that and second my wind chimes project was anything but beautiful. But as fate would have it, my mangled , knotted, tangled mess had tangles and knots in the the wrong places. My disaster of a project met its death as the end knots released and the beads fell and rolled into the darkness between my front porch slats never to be seen again.
      Since I feel like I cheated you out of a pic and a project due to a hungry front porch...How 'bout some blog Candy ??
Leave a comment on ALL my DT Sisters blogs , of course our DT Blog as well as this one, leave a way for me to contact you and one randon winner will be chosen for a Sweet Little Treat...Have a Great Day!!
