I got another letter done. After a discussion with Julie I decided to just do the first letter of each kids’ name. If they want their entire name after Christmas we can cut them out and decorate them together. I think that is a great idea!
I haven’t decided if I’ll darken the edges yet. Don’t you just love the robots? Scrapbooking paper has taken all the work out of this project. I kinda want to cover everything with scrapbooking paper now!
On another note – I’ve decided to scrap the blue wool coat because I was looking for warm jackets in the closet and came across this one! It pays to be a pack rat!
My dear neighbor gave this to me years ago. It is wool and that is a real fox collar. The wool is really thick and still so flexible! The collar might be a bit over the top but it would look kinda dorky without it. Well, I’ll wear it for a while and see how it all feels. It musta cost a fortune back in the day – it still has the Dayton’s tag in it. Remember Dayton’s? (A store that we used to have here in Minnesota) Well, I put it on this morning and my kids didn’t laugh at me and my hubbie said it looked nice. Now, did he say that cause he meant it or cause he is afraid to let me loose in the stores to shop for a coat? I’ll have to give it a good clean today as we have “Christmas in the park” tonight. We’ll be lucky if it reaches 10 degrees. I think I’ll be glad for a thick wool coat!!!!
