Yesterday was a good creative day. The Dr. Seuss unit at G's school wraps up today with Hat Day. G had to make a Seuss-inspired hat from his favorite Seuss book. He chose to make a hat inspired by the "Iota" character from "If I Ran the Zoo".
He was supposed to do the majority of the work on this hat. He tried and tried and had a major melt down. So, finally, i drew it, he colored it and i cut it out. We worked together to turn it into a hat and there was peace in the land, again.
I spent a little time after the kids went to bed making these gift tags for my shop. I still need to add the ribbons to them:
I have had my eye on this cup and saucer at Anthropologie for months.
It's not that it was expensive, but there are so many other expenses in my life, that, at the time, i just allowed myself to drool over it at the store and then walk away. Well, last week, i went to Anthropologie for some inspiration with my sister and mom. I LOVE that store! To my surprise, it was still there and on the sale shelves. After more drooling and walking away, yet again, my sister bought it for me when i wasn't looking. Wasn't that sweet of her? I don't know where i'm going to put it yet, but i know it has to be somewhere i can see it every day. It just makes me happy.
A VERY happy last day of winter to you! Good bye, winter...don't let the door hit you in the bum on the way out!
