I don't want to alarm you or anything but a few days ago I did something so shocking and perverse I can hardly say it out loud....
I made something.
I know! Take a deep breath, I was shocked too. I am what the French call "Les Incompetante" when it comes to do with anything that can be found within the walls of a Michaels or Hobby Lobby. But desperate times call for desperate measures.
It all started this weekend when Aidan suddenly and without warning developed a terrible allergy to Spring, apparently. Her eyes are red and watery and she keeps rubbing her aforementioned tons of hair into her eyes and causing a lot of goop. She has managed to lose every bow I have bought her. (Yes, SHE lost them, I have never lost anything in my life, I don't know what you are talking about)
Since she was obviously miserable I rushed out to buy her some bows at the usual place (they're the only ones she doesn't pull out of her hair). They were running low and I was suddenly struck by the idiocy of buying a $6 bow. Those bows are made out of ribbon, hot glue, and alligator clips. Not golden dust and fairy wings. Then I saw a bow holder selling for $35 dollars. This bow holder, I kid you not, is a piece of wood with ribbon glued to it.
So I went to Michaels and Hobby Lobby and eventually Ulta to gather all of my necessary supplies. I could have just gone to Michaels and Ulta but this is my first time. For under $20 dollars I was able to get enough stuff to make 20 bows and a bow holder. And here it is...
I made this in 10 minutes. The dragonfly even came pre-painted people! Embrace the hot glue gun!!
