Glasses Need Love, Too

It's "Woven Wednesday" and it's Caryl McAdoo here with you today to share a CRAFT!

Okay, y’all don’t laugh. One day soon I’ll have something way more cool to share, but for today, I have my eye-glass case do-over to share. I keep reading glasses everywhere. I think I started wearing them the very day I turned forty. They are important to always have close. J

See, the first reason I did this is that the case is green, and that’s my WAY favorite color. You can’t always find green. So when the little plastic liner on the inside of this small glasses case busted up as they usually do, I elected to give my little fold-up glasses’ case a makeover.

Well, I did my big one, too, but I can’t find them for pictures just now.

So, stripping the brittle broken liner out was no problem. At Hobby Lobby I bought one piece of green felt. It was like a quarter. And as I’m always blessed and highly favored, as I browsed those awesome aisles, I found a little bag of green pompoms on clearance. Twenty more cents!

I cut the felt to fit then glued it in place. Next I glued each little pompom around both ends. Maybe one day I’ll add some bling if I can find some soft bling. And the rest is history J tee hee hee. I just love my fancy little glasses cases every time I get my glasses out. I’ve done a lot of craft projects, but I can’t think of one that’s made me smile more J

Y’all be blessed and walk in the favor of the Lord!

And hey, if you need a wonderful read for your mid-grade reader (that you and your mother and brother will enjoy just as much), check out THE KING’S HIGHWAY, book one in the Days of Dread Trilogy. It’s a dystopian novel (60 thousand words) written to bolster the faith of young believers that in all circumstances, God is with them and watching over then, and will keep, lead, and guide them through it all…including the Days of Dread.   

With airplanes falling out of the sky and all things electric rendered useless after a mysterious flash, skills instilled by Jackson’s Marine father move front and center. With a fierce determination to keep his thirteen-year-old sister McKenzie and nine-year-old brother Cooper safe, the high school freshman is compelled to leave their Irving home in the shadow of the DFW Airport.
    Thrust into a lawless, chaotic world, he’s guided by an ever-changing cryptic note that leads his growing troupe along the King’s Highway in search of their grandparents. Bullies, Russians, wild animals, gang-bangers, and kidnappers thwart their progress while a lack of drinkable water and food is a constant concern. Will he ever find a safe place?    eBook    Print   

Award winning author Caryl McAdoo currently writes four series: the historical Christian ‘Texas Romance’; a contemporary ‘Red River Romance’; The Generations, her Biblical fiction and a new mid-grade Days of Dread Trilogy. The prolific, bestselling novelist loves singing new songs the Lord gives her and painting. In 2008, she and her high school sweetheart-husband Ron moved from the DFW area—home for fifty+ years—to the woods of Red River County. Caryl counts four children and sixteen grandsugars life’s biggest blessings believing all good things come from God. Praying her story gives God glory, she hopes each one will also minister His love, mercy, and grace to its readers. Caryl and Ron live in Clarksville, the county seat, in the far northeast corner of the Lone Star State with two grandsons, Christian and Benjamen.

  1. I wear glasses. I am always putting them down which means a hunt around. I need to take a leaf, green, out of your book. LOVE the pompoms.

  2. I gave up trying to keep up with my glasses. I have a pair in every room and one in the car. Sigh.

  4. I wear my glasses most of the time but keeping up with my cell phone is another story!
