Sugar Grandma

My kids have been adopted by what I lovingly call the “Sugar Grandma.”  She brings them gifts for Christmas and on their birthdays and spoils them while their own grandmas live far away.  Sometimes she even spoils me.  Take a look at what she spotted for me in a second hand store.

Apparently it wasn’t the most popular machine of it’s day, but it is a beauty!

Oh Grommet!

“Oh Grommet!” is costume room talk.   I’ve been busy working on costumes for a big show.  One of the tasks was 250+ grommets in belts.  When frustration set in, “Oh Grommet” came out.

These dish towels are a little reminder for the other costume mamas of the fun we had and the hours upon hours that we spent making the show come together.

The Teacher’s Chair

The Teacher’s Chair

My daughter has an amazing teacher!  Her theme this year is: Yet.  When the students say they can’t do something or are fearful of something new, she’ll tell them, “You just don’t know how to do it YET.”  She also had YET in big letters popping out of her classroom wall.  The teacher asked me to embroider the theme on her director’s chair for the students to have a constant reminder.  (I apologize for a semi-blurry picture.)
