100 Happy Days #2
Years ago, when my girlies were younger, they wore all kinds of pony tails–up, down, one, two, and side ways. Finally there came a day when they just didn’t use all the kid stuff to hold all that hair back, but for some reason, I just couldn’t part with the beads. I’ve kept them in a pretty jar with a bright pink lid, for years and years.
Now, to my delight, Miss Chompy can think of nothing better than to sit for an hour and string the beads to make a “beautiful necklace for Grammy.”
If only it would fit over my big old head.
A bracelet, perhaps?
Either way…it makes me happy.
Quite proud of myself for the supreme slipper fest that has been going on around here lately. The snow keeps coming down outside and in a house loaded with tile floors–well, let’s just say that we’re all wearing out our socks just trying to keep our feet warm. So, the slippers will come in handy. I even added elastic to the top of these ones so that the kids can put them on easier without needing to tie and untie them all the time.
Next up, a pair for the bitty-boy. We may just need to find a way to glue them to his feet though–as he seems to think that socks are an evil invention created strictly to torment him. I’ll figure out a way to make them work.
Just one teensy problem…
Santa brought me a pretty little distraction.
I mean….back to work!
Even if you can’t understand anything this little Russian cutie is saying…the message is still crystal clear.
Isn’t the Christmas season magical?
We positively LOVE Masha and the Bear!
Miss Chompy made a tower out of the kid’s ancient Duplo Blocks and put a happy little lady inside. She thought about it for a few minutes and said, “Hey, she’s like Rapunzel…only with not good hair.”
Hmmmm….let me just put on my Crafty-Grammy cap, I thought. So I cut a long strip from a plastic grocery bag…tied a few knots…
and snapped it in just below Rapunzel’s window, in the back.
Next, Chompy stuffed all that “hair” into the room with the girlie…
Instant. Repurposed. Princess.
Grammy of the year award…
