yes, i bribed layne with a bagel before school today...you know, so i wouldn't have to pick him up again?
after i dropped him off, i turned my ringer on high and prayed-- the entire time. so it wasn't that relaxing while he was gone. i went to the store to grab some milk for my hoglet little girl and to hobby lobby again for something i forgot.
i went to pick him up and there he was on the playground, not under a patio table screaming. but sitting on a bench by the teachers...looking as anti-social as ever. that's my boy!
i was overcome with emotion when i saw he was wearing the same outfit i brought him in. in mommy terminology, that means... "child didn't pee on self."
the teacher said he had one meltdown when it was time to go play outside. i'm thinking, i don't care. he stayed the whole time!

enough about layne, let's talk about crafts. here is my latest craft... i like sewing things on kids clothes, but what about adults? this could be borderline cheesy, but i thought i would risk it. so i picked up a shirt at old navy and sewed some little flowers on it.
the flower is made by layering really jacked up circle-ish shapes on top of each other. i did the flower in t-shirt fabric b/c i wanted to curl up on the edges when washed. the stem is just on there with heat and bond and the edges are stitched--like what i did on the bird craft. good times.
i have no idea how this will wash up. i gave it away for a birthday gift, so we'll never know. unless i make one for myself. and i will...hello, too cute.
hopefully, the pictures are self explanatory (as far as instructions) if you'd like to give it a try.
