Strange Wednesdays: Death Star Catchall Tray

I’ve been losing my phone constantly in my own house, a consequence of having a black phone, couch, end tables, nightstand, bookshelves, and so forth. I bought a gray tray to keep track of my phone and other small black items I keep misplacing, but it was a little plain.

To make it more interesting, I decided to stencil a Death Star on the front. I found this one here, but you can really use anything that strikes your fancy.

I taped it in place and traced it with a pencil first, then filled it in with a sharpie marker. The perfect craft project for the middle of the work week; fun, easy, and quick.

Now hopefully I can keep better track of alł my black belongings.

Floodwaters are still rising in the Carolinas after Hurricane Florence, here are the best ways to help:

Donate money to the Red Cross. Monetary donations help the organization assist those affected by a disaster with the specific resources and help they need. You can donate at the Red Cross’ website, over the phone by calling 1-800-Red-Cross and by texting 9099 to give $10.

Donate blood. The storm has disrupted many scheduled blood drives, and you can help hospitals make up the difference.

Bring clothes to The Salvation Army, Goodwill, or other local organization that regularly process clothing donations, like Crisis Assistance Ministry in Charlotte. They sort donations and give people affected by a crisis vouchers to choose what they need, allowing organizations like the Red Cross to focus on other areas of disaster recovery.
