Tonight I chose a quick project because I had to second coat my floor from last night and do a final coat on my cabinet doors. No, really. This time it’s final and I’m going to beg John to help me hang them tomorrow night. I know it will be Valentine’s Day, but it shouldn’t take long and we’ll still have time for a nice dinner. I bought a couple of steaks to use as bribery. That should work, right?
I found this cute idea for a Washcloth Rosebud Bouquet for a new baby gift. Wish I would have seen this before the baby shower! Here’s the link: http://www.etsy.com/listing/74035331/new-price-washcloth-rosebud-bouquet-baby?ref=sr_gallery_34&ga_search_query=gifts&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_ship_to=ZZ&ga_min=0&ga_max=0&ga_page=14&ga_search_type=handmade
It’s actually something you can order online, but I figured that I could make something similar. I bought a couple of packages of cute washcloths at the store tonight and hurried home to get started.
This project involved making another cone like the one I tried the other night with the nuts. This involves one of my favorite craft tools – the hot glue gun. There’s almost nothing that a hot glue gun cannot do. Never doubt that two things can be attached with one of these babies – including your fingers, so watch out for that.
I didn’t really have any instructions, but it looked simple enough. I made the cone and glued on the matching ribbons. Then I rolled up all the washcloths and arranged them artfully inside. I think it turned out pretty cute and will make a cute gift for the baby – who is now due within the next two weeks! We’re getting very excited now!!!
I also want to say “Happy Birthday” to Jordan. I hope you read this (just ignore the part about the baby gift) and that you are having a fun last birthday before you become a mom. Next year, you and the baby can celebrate together. I can’t wait!
