So glad to have a 3 day weekend (thank you George Washington)! I have lots to do and only finished one thing! I had covered a wreath with white grosgrain ribbon about a month or so ago and have been looking at it ever since to determine how I was going to decorate it. I finally decided tonight to make it an Easter wreath. I searched the web for inspiration and decided to cover it with pink Easter grass, small plastic Easter eggs, and a little pom-pom Easter Bunny head. I think it turned out great if I do say so myself! I will take a much better photo of it tomorrow so I can post it on my Etsy site. But, at 9:00 pm at night I’m lacking the natural light that comes in through the windows during the day. I will probably hang it on the front door to take it’s picture tomorrow.
I was going to make a trip to the store today to get some black latex paint to make a second attempt at painting some styrofoam balls to make Minnie Mouse heads, but I took my mother to see an awesome performance of Alvin Ailey’s Dance Company at the wonderful Fox Theatre in Atlanta today and it was way more important than black paint. I will be making at least one Minnie Mouse head as a demo to show a friend for her daughter’s upcoming 1st birthday party. I made Minnie Mouse head invitations for her based on links she sent me from the web.
I will also be cutting out lots of large triangles to sew together for another friend’s child’s birthday party. They will be made into “penalty flag” goody bags. I will make a handful tomorrow moring and send her a picture to see if we are on the right track.
The awesome thing about not having my own kids is I can help other people with birthday celebrations all year long and not just once with a child of my own.
And oh gosh…I have a kissing ball to finish – I’ve been putting pretty pink and green ribbons on my styrofoam ball. A teddy bear to finish. A teddy bear to rip seems out of and fix up. Two full aprons to make (my first attempt at the full aprons) – one for mom and one for daughter. I wonder what else is on my unfinished list – this surely can’t be all of it!
Well…*fingers crossed* I actually get stuff done!
