My boys have a little tradition, and it is the Lego Advent Calendar. We order it from the lego website and when it comes in the mail; it really is the start of the season.
This year it came early, and the anticipation was just too much. They asked their dad to please hide the boxes? it was just too exciting to have them within reach, but to have to wait another 34 sleeps.
Micah told me he'd gotten a "soundless alarm clock"- meaning that he'd set his box across the room from his bed so that he'd be forced to get out of bed to enjoy his first December day.
Sam bounced out of bed at 7:15 this morning and opened his first window. It's a lego guy with wee little lego snow balls.
How can you not love this stuff?
I like what Tanya said yesterday- "I don't know about bringing sexy back, but you sure brought funky back!"
A while back, I found a summer dress at the thrift shop. It was from "Joe" which I happen to like. However, I wanted it to be a shirt, and not a dress, so I cut off the bottom few inches.
(bag inside out- pocket)I also used a pair of Jane's favourite pants that had an unfortunate crotch- busting incident. Still, no sense in wasting those pockets!
(again- bag inside out; pockets. The pant pockets, plus the area behind the pants creates a large pocket).
Other pieces employed are: upholstery samples, donated (green); and a little piece of corduroy from Mitchel fabrics. From about 13 years ago. (still love it).
I noticed that the colours on some of these photos are a bit wonky. For most accurate colour portrayal, focus on the first and last photos. The colour combo is quite pleasing to the eye.
14" wide; 12" long.
Large enough for: binder, baby gear, laptop, etc.
$25- starts her off.
Auction concludes at 9:30 pm cst. today, December one!
