I taught Kristy how to make friendship bracelets. I guess they are back in style, or did they even go out?
She is really enjoying herself. She has made everyone in our family one, mine is still in the making. When she asked Wayne what colours he wanted, I thought there is no way this man is going to wear a bracelet.
Hubby is a manly man. You know the type, likes to hunt, fish (you know generally just likes to kill things). Drives a big truck, never wears pink, you get it.
So when he told Kristy the colours he wanted I thought, oh he is just being sweet, he will never wear it. But he put it on and hasn't taken it off since she gave it to him.
It just makes my heart swell with love for this man.
When I went to the quilting store last week something struck me as odd.
They are getting sewers to make pillow cases for the Toys for Tot's campaign. I thought oh I would love to do this, I have lots of extra fabric, I can whip up some and donate them.
So I enquired about it. What you have to do is buy the fabric and pattern kit for $10.00. When you bring in your finished project, your name goes in a draw for a gift basket.
I thought, what you have to purchase a kit to donate. This makes no sense to me. It seems like a marketing ploy for the store.
Now I may be wrong, but if you are going to donate a project I thought that you would use what you have on hand. This is what I did when I knit mitts years ago.
I would rather give the money to that charity instead of this. What are your thoughts? Have you encounter this, is this the norm and I am looking at it all wrong?
Its Tuesday, so what did you do today to make you feel proud?
1. Well I actually worked all day, does that count?
Yup that's about it, how sad is that. LOL
