These days it seems like it's impossible to get any projects done.
im. poss. ible.
BUT, once in awhile a miracle happens and I actually begin and finish and project.
This time, it even happened all on the same day.
It started when I went to play group. It was an unusual day for west Texas.
It was raining.
Just a little bit, but it gave us a chance to use our new umbrellas. (at least for something besides shade) I was surprised to arrive at the park and not find a single other person.
No one else from our really large group was there.
I thought it was good to let my kids experience rain, especially since we hardly ever get any.
I can't imagine a childhood where you never get wet playing in the rain.
I must be the only mom who feels that way.
After about a half an hour, I got a text from one of the mom's saying that due to the weather, we would have playgroup at her house.
So, I went there and there was only her and one other mom. We let the kids play, and I noticed that she had this really cute thanksgiving banner hanging up.
I looked at it closer and realized that it was all made out of paper.
Holiday paper. Tied together with jute, and various fall colored ribbons tied in between.
I realized that I had all the supplies for it at home. I had even contemplated throwing out all my holiday paper the week before since I know I'll never actually finish another scrapbook in my lifetime.
So, I threw the idea at the other moms, ran home and got all my supplies and and we made these banners while the kids played.
Best. Playgroup. Ever.
