Witch Hat for Lexi
Boy, I have read a couple of blogs lately where people have written about some pretty serious stuff going on in their lives. I haven't commented on the blogs because I can't even imagine what I might say in one or two sentences that would make anyone feel better. I do keep those people in my thoughts and prayers. And having been there myself in one case, I really can say that tomorrow is better and each day after it gets a bit lighter and easier although the hurt never really ever goes away. Even though they are virtual scrapbooking friends, I really do care and hope things get better.
So, today, I thought I'd post something light and something small. It will make a small person smile when she gets home from her weekend at the Grandparents house. She had to have this hat a while back that we found at a local drug store that was going out of business.
I then found these huge blooms that you can pin onto something at another store and thought I'd bling up her hat just a bit. I added some cheese cloth that I inked with a lime green and sprayed with some homemade glimmermist to get the color to flow. Then I pinned on the three flowers and tied on my cheese cloth ribbon. It's so pretty! I am sure she will love it.
I'm not sure if they dress up in 5th Grade at this school or will even let them wear a hat but regardless I'll snap a few photo of her in it. I think the entire hat cost me less than $10 due to the flowers being on sale and the hat being discounted quite a bit due to the store closing.
And, do you see that pumpkin in the background that is orange! Not anymore! Shirley and I added a modge podge treatment! I will post that tomorrow!
