I am officially 50 today, but my big party is tomorrow
and it's no mere "let's do lunch".
There will be "hats" and party favors!
A couple days ago I spent the evening making hair fascinators.
I have a gross (a case!) of cardboard Mickey Mouse ear headbands that I remade
into sparkly party wear by tearing off the ears and adding
salvaged ribbon, gold foil doilies, feathers and mylar curling ribbon.
In other words, "junk" I had on hand. :)
Too much is never enough.
And somehow I had enough materials (and energy!) to make 20 of these
in one sitting.
Not to be left out, Rebecca requested a special one for herself,
with plastic gems hotglued to the band.
She was happy to model it for you.
She wore it to school the next day and now all of the girls (and a few boys!)
want her to make one for them too.
I have plenty of headbands and can probably find some
Christmas ribbon stashed away somewhere,
so it's possible that I could fill their requests.
I'm out of plastic gems, but the ribbon is sparkle enough.
These were so fun (and cheap) to make, I could happily make more.
Wish I could say that I have less to pack now, but ribbon doesn't take up much room.
And I still have about 80 Mickey Mouse ear head bands!
It's official now.
We are moving in two weeks and I have yet to pack anything!
I'm more concerned about celebrating my birthday! ha!
I'll still except "50" photos if you find any.
I'll be 50 all year!
