Every year our ward does an auction as part of the Holiday Dinner and people donate services (like babysitting or computer help), homemade goodies, and handmade crafts and use the money to do a Sub-for-Santa. And every year I think, "Oh, I could make this or that..." and then wait until it's too late to start another project.
So this year I decided that making a few holiday hair bows would be easily do-able. (That, and I am trying to live down my attempt at helping last year that can only be described as The Great Turkey Debacle of 2009... a day that will live in infamy forever... at least in my mind.)
So I gathered up all my supplies, set up a workspace and got to creating...
...and before I knew it a couple of hair bows had turned into 29.
And I don't want to stop!
I am loving making something that can be finished in a few minutes as opposed to the hours and hours that I have spent slogging through a cross-stitched stocking for my son and am still no where near done. The stocking looks great and I know I'll love it when it is finished. It's just nice to get a little instant gratification now and then to keep me motivated to keep crafting!
