Craftiness

Shaleigh is very crafty!   When situations come up in her life she is sure that creating something amazing will make it even better.  (I wonder where she gets that from Hee Hee)  So, she is on the student council at school.  Remember this post.  Today they are taking their pictures for the yearbook.  So, of course, Shaleigh needed a new accessory.  She and I headed down to the beloved craft room ( I really don't get to spend enough time down there) and proceeded to CREATE.  This is what we came up with.  The flowers are made of gray stretch knit and liquid fabric starch.  She then wanted to add some sparkle so out came the brads.  We glued it to a cheap-o Dollar Tree headband and Wallah (is that how you spell that??) a headband is born.   It was really fun to spend time with her doing what we both love so much.  Of course I will remember these moments long after the headband is gone.  I just hope Shaleigh remembers too.

Very cute! She will remember spending time with you, I promise! She will remember because you didn't just go to the store to buy something. Time is the best thing we can give them!

So cute! You guys should make them together throughout the year and sell them at craft fairs or something. You are both so crafty. This is the kind of thing that makes me want a daughter someday!
