In Which I Ruin A Perfectly Good Craft

They are so cute this way, though, aren’t they? 

 I know what you’re thinking:  what the heck happened to your ladybugs?  They look like they were gnawed on by hungry dogs (or a hungry Em)!  What happened, dear friends, is laziness.  I’m not embarrassed to be honest with you.  I did not use black paint for the dots and half-moon.  I used a black Sharpie.  And the black Sharpie scraped my washable paint right off, so the original lid color (aka blue) showed right through.  The ridiculous part is that once I realized this was happening (immediately), I did not stop.  Nope, I just kept on going.   Not my best crafty moment.  But like I say, you’re used to it by now! And if you’re not, stick around.  I can screw up grilled cheese.

The only problem with these little cuties is, once you make them, what are you supposed to do with them?  Probably use acryllic paint so you could leave them outside to adorn your herb garden.  I have neither common sense nor an herb garden, so I just have four plastic lid ladybugs.

I guess we’ll leave it up to him!
