If there is one thing that makes my day brighter is it to bring a smile to the face of another person. Today I did just that when my granddaughter arrived and spotted her pony headbands that will be shared with her friends at her birthday party this weekend.
The hardest part was assembling the unicorn horns and that wasn’t hard at all. I set the headbands on the kitchen counter to show her mother but the little one spotted them first and squealed with joy. She asked if she could try one on and have me take a picture of her wearing it. I thought that was a great idea as then I would be sure to have a photo to share with you.
Now that’s a happy face. 🙂 Mom liked how they came out as well and seeing how much this little one liked the headbands I think they will go over well with her friends and have the desired outcome of providing lots of imaginative play hours for these children.
In other news, with my sporadic blogging of late I completely forgot to share a gift I received that brought a smile to my face. Elaine (My Next 20 Years of Living) caught the decluttering bug after the holidays and decided to go through her stash of yarn. She then packaged up a wide variety and sent them to me!
This was such a wonderful gift to receive, thank you, Elaine. Money has been tight as of late because I’ve been helping my son with his bills while he gets caught up after being laid off before Christmas so things like yarn are not a priority at the moment. In the box I found stretchy yarns perfect for crocheting socks and I’ll use a bit of the other yarns to crochet doll clothes for the children to play with when they visit. So many possibilities. 🙂
