Jewel up some crafty crowns!
So I was going through Charlotte's birthday party photos today, archiving them into their appropriate places, when I realized that our crown craft was an idea worth sharing -- for birthday girls everywhere. It worked out perfectly, and captivated a table full of kids for a noteworthy while. So, for anyone with a little girl's party coming up soon, here's a great activity.
These foam crowns are from Michael's. They're only one dollar each. Add two buckets of foam stickers in letters & shapes (50% off right now), a couple of adults for sticker-peeling, and a big table. That's it. Not very tricky at all, but dern successful.
The girls went for goopy, froo-froo crowns and the boys kept things fairly simple. Even Max joined in, although he was already sporting the best crown ever.
On other fronts, I'm designing another fabric collection right now and
it's nearly impossible to tear myself away for anything. Yes, partly
for the fun of it, only partly, but mostly because I can't
stand the suspense. I've been working away on one of the designs for
five or six days now and well, I really need to step out into the
sunlight. Fun design though. Unexpected and a bit cheeky.
Things are moving along smoothly with Trash Ties too. We're ahead of schedule and getting orders out even earlier than promised at the moment, so that feels good. And I've just now set up the Trash Ties photo group at Flickr, though I haven't posted any photos yet. So, go join the group, post your Trash Ties 'dos & beat me to it. I can't wait to see what you've dreamed up. Like this and this and this -- you guys rock!
The more tired I get, the more exclamation points I'm tempted to use. What's that about? ! Time for a nap, I guess. !
