Valentines: Check! Thanks for all of those who wanted to be our Valentine! We have ours done and they are in the mail. I think we ended up making about 25! If I was better organized and it wasn't so close to Valentines, I could have divided it up more so everyone received more than 1! Next year. There is always next year. If you are looking for some great craft idea's, check these cutie patooties out. Free down-loadable pattern. Very cute!
I hit some thrift shops with Mom on Saturday and had some good fabric scores. I hit the breaks on thift shopping for the last several months because I am in the 'getting rid of stuff' mode not 'acquiring more stuff' mode. But fabric, I mean fabric. I already have a spot for this. And I can always use it. Isn't the fabric under the Valentines to die for? The second pic is a table cloth with the most hideous blue fringe. But when I saw this fabric, I knew exactly what I was going to use it for.
Aren't the sheets groovey? There's always room for these. They make perfect liners for bags, or bags themselves. We scored a handful of old children's books which made for a great day of shopping.
We've read these 3 books at every nap and bedtime, since they were purchased (you can't go wrong at .25 cents per book.) I think Henry's favorite is "Bobo" which is about an elephant whose Mother makes him a blue jacket, but he falls in the muddy pond and needs to have it washed. They take it to the old Monkey who lives under the tree to give it a wash. But the monkey is hard of hearing, and puts "shrinko" in the water and now the jacket no longer fits Bobo. So he lets all of his animal friends try it on and the hippo stretches it out and then- voila. It fits the elephant once again. He is so happy he goes to bed in his blue jacket.
I love the illustrations in "Bunny School." Aren't they sweet?
I b-lined it to my sisters salon the second I got here for a long-overdue haircut. I think she cut off about 4"? I so needed it. I hadn't cut my hair in about 6 months and it was getting pretty bad. This ought to last me a while, so thanks, Annika! I love it. I can't rave enough about what an incredible job she does, so if you live in Utah, b-line it to her salon, Aerolab 217 E Broadway, SLC UT 801-364-4092.
