Sometimes the best way for me to shake a crappy mood

Is to make a big mess.

My oldest wanted to craft something. She snuggled up to me, and said, "I'd like to do something with ribbon and paper."

I replied, "How about ribbon and fabric. You can make a purse."

Screaming and jumping and Yippie! abounded.

It was fun... She invited a friend over, and they spent the next thirty minutes gluing the ribbon on. There is still a huge mess in the kitchen. I suppose I should get it cleaned up.

The finished product turned out pretty spiffy, I think. My girl is the tall one.

Where'd she get this idea, you ask? This is what I've been making in my spare time...

The fabric in the center is what I used for the lining. I didn't glue the ribbon on, I stitched it. Pretty cool, I think. My latest is black fabric with pink ribbon. Very Audrey.
