Ants invading our tiny home

Firstly, we have a damned ant problem. Three days ago I spotted thousands of black ants milling aorund the beams above our heads at night and surmised that there is an ant nest behind one entire plywood wall. It is most distressing as I hate ants. Getting Ant Rid there is a nightmare as there aren’t any horizontal surfaces for the poison to pool on. The first night we put Ant Rid, the next morning there wasn’t an ant to be seen walking. But plenty of carcasses to vacuum up. Today, they’re back.

More Ant Rid. I hate ants.

On another totally unrelated note, I’m totally enchanted by these gorgeous bookmarks on oh so crafty and am inspired now to create them.

How often have you seen gorgeous one-piece earrings? Where its partner is lost? I have one piece on my dresser tray that I love for its sparklyness but never found its partner.

I dug out my box of things, and looked through my stash of ribbon… and got the beading pliers out…
