While the girls were working on their ATC cards for the swap (due in the mail this weekend) I worked on the hair ribbon thingies I had been meaning to make.
These are modeled off the fancy hair bands with ribbons given to the girls for a birthday or Christmas gift from I think a family member. I don't remember because I am bad. They have become pretty popular. The middle child also wears them as bracelets, which means baby does, too. They have pink and lavender ones and I thought it would be cool to have more. They look better when they are monochromatic (not to be too controlling, but you know what I mean) so we went with green and blue.
Here they are finishing up their cards. I feel sort of silly posting ribbons tied to rubber bands (the bands are made by Goody and available at the drugstore, the ribbons came from the fabric shop) but they were so well received, I thought I'd show them. They would make such sweet gifts too. A homemade shrinky dink charm would be cute—attached with a jump ring on the band. Oh, we should do that!
And so random, but we have the fraggle CD turned up way too loud right now and there is a duet with Mokey and Gobo that sounds just like Meatloaf.
