We were snowed in this past weekend, and by Day 3 I was starting to get a little stir crazy. The fridge and freezer were cleaned out, laundry had been done, and several projects had been started and cast aside out of restlessness. I stuck my daughter in her high chair with some pieces of felt and glue while I unraveled a scarf for yarn because I couldn't get out to the craft store for some of the other projects I wanted to try.
Or couldn't I?
|This is just so cute!|
But. I knew my nearest Michael's didn't have the green tulle ribbon with dots. Or it didn't last week when I looked.
But maybe it did now that Christmas is a little closer. And maybe if I dressed up my little girl in such a Christmas-y outfit I could finally take a good picture of her (translation: any picture with her hair out of her face and her pacifier out of her mouth). And then maybe I could get some Christmas cards out before Christmas!
And maybe the roads were mostly clear enough that I could put on non-pajama pants and brave the slick spots and bad drivers in order to check out the tulle selection and spend my evening making a tutu!
But then I imagined the look on the AAA tow truck driver's face when I explained my motive for getting out in the ice and inevitably got stuck in a ditch somewhere--or worse. And I imagined how long I would have to wait in my car for a tow. And once I reasoned with myself that I could pack measuring tape and a pair of scissors to make a tutu while I waited for rescue, I realized that cabin fever had completely eaten my brain and I had no business operating a car in any kind of weather.
So.........maybe in the next few days?
Because this is adorable and needs to happen in my home.
Maybe you're crafting and travel prospects look a bit better than mine. I hope you're staying safe and warm with plenty of power and important supplies like glitter tulle!
