The Flowers are fall, the darkness is fall, the rain is fall but the temperature is Swedish summer! Little strange but hey, I'm not complaining!

Thought I'd show a little of the papercrete process. First I take lots of newspapers and office paper and shred it (luckily my office has a paper shredder, maybe not common in this digital age)
Then I pour water over all of it and let in soak for a week. If I'm in a hurry I pour boiling water over it, then I can use the next day. I mix it with my concrete mixer, or if a smaller batch, the paint stirring attachment on my drill. This is how it looks all mushed up.

Ok, ok. How in the world can I keep up with everything? Instagram, Facebook, etsy, Pinterest. (Plus of course, work, housework-yuck, I don't do it! workout, Skype with grandson and daughter far away) so the blog has suffered. But I'm going to try to improve!
This huge flower pot is papercrete, made from old paper, concrete and perlite.

A special thanksgiving today 27 November, my Emily's 27 th birthday. Still dark here in Sister Bay but soon I will wake K and drive to Green Bay and pick Em, Seb and little Noah up. And at home, William is trying to get things ready for the 1st of advent!
