Forgetting our grocery bags last week turned out to be a good thing, although you might not have believed it if you happened to have spotted some wildly dramatic lady in the parking lot last week letting out an exhausted d word when she realized she had forgotten them...again....
But thankfully for the good of her saintly children :) she managed to pull it together, embrace her imperfection (and abundance of paper bags), and put a few bags to work. We are making ornaments this year for presents, and these angels are the latest. They take no time at all, and can be made with things that you probably already have around the house.
Then we flipped them around so the design side was in, and Maddy took over with the sewing:
Oh, and PS, a little gloating--I won my first ever giveaway!!!! I checked out Ally's blog, last night just before going to bed, and I couldn't believe it! I was so excited I couldn't sleep...which absolutely exhausted Rich was extra thrilled about. I kept telling him, "I won something!! I won something!!! I WON something!!!" I think the light fixture is really cool...Rich shared my excitedment for about 2 seconds before showing him the picture, to which he responded "It looks like a wigwam"--total buzz kill Rich! The girls like it though, so I least I have someone to share my excitement :)
