I know I've been absent for several days. We've been on Fall Break, and that's my excuse. Too much time being lazy/finishing projects/crafts/dentist appointments.
And today is Halloween of all things. The kids didn't go trick or treating last year. They said they were too old, and I was secretly relieved. It's too much of a hassle thinking of how I'm gonna make their costumes every year. Evan would always come up with a random/hard character, and I would have to deliver.
Then Grace hit me upside the head this afternoon when her friends texted her to go trick or treating with them and their mom.
"What in the world will you wear?" I asked. "We're going as the 80's" she exclaimed. That I can work with, and they just had that as a spirit day this past week at school for Red Ribbon Week.
However, when she came out of her room looking like this...
What they must think of this past generation to go so over the top.
So, while Grace was in her room designing this outfit, I was at my craft table, whipping up a craft that I started with no good end in mind.
I had no idea what it would turn out like. I had an idea in my head, but sometimes the end result is different.
Our church bazaar is in a couple weeks, and our Sunday School class needed to come up with a craft for the donated craft table. This is why I was trying this out.
My supplies looked like this.
An old book. One from home, used strictly for crafts.
So, first I cut the book pages into strips,
I was pleased with the result, and now don't want to donate it to the donated table at all! I will, though, and then I'll probably make some more for my own tree.
Well, I gotta run. Time to take Grace for a night out on the town. Yipee.
