Painting 3s

I've been busy crafting.


I'm not a very crafty person, but I enjoy doing crafts! Let me clarify - I am terrible at coming up with crafty ideas and things to do that end up looking nice, but if someone gives me a project with clearly defined guidelines/goals, then I enjoy completing it. Especially if it involves crafty things like paint or markers.

I ended up creating a stencil and painting 19 of these giant number 3s last week for basketball. The coach wanted to do a kind of countdown thing (or I guess a reverse countdown), in which every time a player hit a three pointer, someone would put up a three on the wall. It was a tactic to get the crowd more involved and into the game and I think it worked. Coach's kids were responsible for paying attention and hanging up the threes during the game and they did an awesome job. They even took a victory lap around the court once waving the three of their own accord, which was pretty funny :)
These are the type of things I now have time to do since we live down here in Farmville...
