Unemployed and entertained...

Well, due to unforseen circumstances, my job was discontinued last Friday. I honestly expected there to be a couple more weeks to a month left for me to work and was more than a bit shocked/taken aback when it happened, but we're muddling through. But, my lovely and darling step-daughter, Tara, took me to Starbucks after retrieving my stuff from work this morning as a belated mother's day prezzie and we hit Hobby Lobby. I had been hoping to try out a tutorial I saw which involved making Bandana Dresses (thanks to Trey and Lucy.) We found some Bandana's and coordinating ribbon and here we go!

These are the Bandanas we picked out (Pink for Sadie and purple for Jude - The checked ribbon is to go with the pink and the polka dots with the purple)

This project would not have been possible with out a kick ass Starbucks Drink (something to do with toffee chip mocha something or was sinful)

Also there to help was my New Girl Elna.

This is my middle girl in the final product. Whatchoo think? Ain't it cute?!

And just another one of my girl cuz she's just so danged cute.

I'm hoping with some time off I'll get some projects done around this house and maybe share them with y'all. I've got another dress to finish and another bandana shirt/dress to make for my youngest gal tomorrow. Take care all!


  1. I LOVE those dresses! Sorry you had to go to the HL without my great discount :)

  2. I'm sorry about your job! The dresses are awesome though!
