And me receiving yet another "I'm working past bedtime" phone call I decided SCREW IT. We're in survival mode. And for me the fastest way to get off the treadmill and feel like I'm actually being productive is to do something, anything, that won't be undone in 10 seconds. So I turned to the google, found this tutorial from Sew Much Ado, pulled some shirts out of the bags to donate, and within 15 min had turned this:
Yay scraps! About an hour and a half after I finally got her down I had this:
Cute, easy, basically free, possible to accomplish after even a late bedtime, and best of all not going to be immediately undone. Exactly what I needed to feel human again.
Of course I violated the cardinal rule of "always let the toddler pick out their own outfit" while trying to photograph it so what I really ended up with was this:
|NO CHEESE. OFF. (translation: stop taking pictures of me in my misery and get this skirt that I did not choose off of me)|
|Look it's my doggie!|
|I love my SLEEPY DOT.|
|The sunglasses (aka EYES) were clearly her own choice.|
|COPTER BOOM WEK (translation: helicopter, boom, wreck. she says this every time she drops it. hilarious)|
Oh and I'm trying to participate in the online blogging communities more so....
