keeping up with the jones's

Angie and Erika are always crafting 'hair stuff'

i have been wanting to create some things for a while now.  last night i dragged jenelle around with me to find some ribbon, tool and feathers...

walmart had virtually NO ribbon, and they don't sell fabric there either so no tool....

we went to michaels and found too much tool, some feathers (where is a good place to buy feathers?) and ribbon at prices slightly higher than wal-mart... but i just wanted to make something.. so we decided to buy it. 

while standing in line, these two ladies asked us if we had a coupon, we didn't come prepared so we didn't have one, so they offered us not one, but TWO 40% off one regular priced item coupons. 

Then... our cashier (the store manager) told me that there wasn't 1metre of the light ribbon, i told him i would take whatever was left, he struggled trying to compute the price and then just ended up giving it to me for free.  It was a 'hair-stuff' making miracle! (a lot like a christmas miracle for those sisters who were christmas shopping with us)










we worked on a few things for about an hour, and we'll have to do it again when Jamie is around.  but i think we did okay for our first attempts with ribbons and tool WITH feathers.

Where to find feathers?

Try Grandpa's supplies for making fishing flies. I have great memories of watching Grandpa pick out "just the right feather(s)" and crafting "the right combination" to come up with the "perfect" fishing fly to catch "THE BIGGEST FISH".

Those look great!!!! I wish we were there!

You should check out that fishing supply store!! Just don't take candi with you or you might have to pay for a hook becasue it is attached to her finger.

I don't know what I'm impressed with more, your stylin' hair accessories or your crafting miracles...

I'm not "surprised" by the great job that the two of you did but, I am surprised by how people supported your "habit".

Just like I think about Grandma's "popcorn snowmen", I think about Grandpa's tray's of feathers and watching him tie flies.

Teach me. Can I come make them with you?
I LOVE the ones you wore to church today! They are so cute. How do you attach them to the bobby? Glue?
