This has been going in since January and I'm about at my wit's end. Eating out, microwaveable meals, no counters to put anything on and nothing but a toaster and microwave have aost killed me-- BUT not having a kitchen sink has been the worst. I will never take a thing in my new kitchen for granted again!
Countertops are to be installed next week, then it's tiling the backsplash, appliances hooked up, cabinet lighting and finally the floor!!! I can do this... I can do this... I can do this...
I sewed this dress for Scarlet last year and was so sad that Halloween was over because she couldn't wear it anymore. Well, when I found out we were having Wednesday Jones, I KNEW another Halloween frock had to be made. This is what I came up with. I'm in love!
So I needed to come up with a craft that Scarlet could make as a gift for the opposing cheer squad, but I wanted it to be something she could totally do on her own and that wasn't expensive. I then saw these masks at Michael's and KNEW just what I'd do!!!
Here’s what I came up with:
So here is what Miss Scarlet did and did so well!!!
1. You will need a giant Pixie Stick, a glue gun, some Halloween ribbon and a kitty mask from Michael’s.
2. Take the paper off of the top of the Pixie Stick.
3. Punch a hole in the mask.
4. Thread the ribbon through the mask.
5. Tie the ribbon in a knot.
6. Using a glue gun, attach the mask to the Pixie Stick.
So this is the PB chalkboard that sat in Scarlet's room for years and boy, did she trash it. I don't know exactly what she did to it to destroy it so, but it is not pretty.
So last year it was sitting in the garage "throw away" pile and I kinda felt sad about that so I took it and put it on my porch and it's now one of my favorite ways to welcome the kids home from school or ring in a holiday!
Oh, and the fact that I'm not even kind of an artist doesn't stop me from drawing away on it! Bad doodling= love anyway! ;)
