Have you ever had a bad craft day? Well, I had one today and I have to tell you, it's not so much fun. This post will make you laugh and cry...from laughter!
I made this super cute bracelet last night!
Totally FUN, right? So I woke up and started working on another one for a tutorial. Well, it was a colossal bust...literally. It busted open. See.
So needless to say, I took a brake from the fabric covered bracelet. It is salvageable, and there will be a tutorial...some day. :)
On to craft project number two, a banner for Father's Day! It's Keith's first Father's Day and I wanted to make it really special! I thought an "I love Daddy" banner would be perfect! Then I had a stroke of genius! I thought, "Why don't I make this two-sided?" I decided to put I "heart" Daddy on one side and Freedom on the other. I "heart" Daddy can hang until Father's Day and Freedom could be displayed for the rest of June and early July. Holy cow! What a great idea! See take a look.
And now here's the other side.
My stroke of genius turned into a very, ugly blond moment. :) Freedom turned into Modeerf...not really a patriotic word. When you put the start of one word on the back of the start of the second word (does that make sense), it doesn't work out so well. :) I can laugh about it...now.
I will definitely attempt the two-sided banner again because it is pretty fantastic. I'll just be more careful next time! My day wasn't a total bust. The I "heart" Daddy banner turned out perfect and I learned a GREAT lesson! :) LOL!
