a day in the life of @ 612...

In the life of a girl with too many craft supplies,
and so many ideas,
and so many flowers sitting on the table waiting to be used...

there comes the moment when it all makes sense.

Around here it seems that moment arrives with a chid in tow...
"Mom, I need a present for ____________"
you fill in the blank.
"Do you have anything we can make"

(it's like they know I work best under pressure or something!)

Today was such a day.
Believe it or not, I didn't have to make a single flower for this bib necklace
that I put together for Danielle's friend's 21st birthday.
D-"Mom can WE make something for Carly?"
M-"What would WE make?"
D-"I don't know... she loves all of your flowers though"
~nuff said.
I like this girl already!
D- "oh and I need to leave in about an hour or so..."
D- "I love you!!!"
I'm such a sucker for a smooch and I love you and a good challenge.

by the way... you know why the WE in this drama has been highlighted right?
I did mention the sucker part, right?

 This little project has given me a whole new appreciation
for stockpiling my supplies.
(also known as making tons of flowers without a definite plan for them)

I really must go through my stash and see what else I can come up with!
I can thank the fabulous land of blog for this inspiration!

so here goes...
Thanks to all of you fabulously creative bloggers who have shown us your anthro inspired creations,
otherwise I honestly wouldn't have known the first thing about bib necklaces!
Today I am the coolest mom on the block

and it feels sooooo good!  ;O

Happy Saturday!
