With my recent bow making kick, I have settled into Michael’s as my second home. Last week, I pulled up in their parking lot with the kids and heard Carson ask, “Hey mom, are we getting more ribbon?”. Poor guy. Anyway, it struck me that I lacked an aesthetically pleasing way to display my handiwork so back to Michael’s we ventured. This time, I purchased a blank canvas. I have never felt as artsy fartsy in my life as when I purchased that sucker. Except maybe when I created that enormous paper mache gorilla back in middle school. Does paper mache even exist anymore or was strictly an entity of the 90’s? I digress.
So I painted my canvas, hot glued some ribbon and rickrack (another love of mine), and voila! A bow board! Easy peasy and oh so cute, if I do say so myself.
Oh and check out the cupcake bow!! Though I am in complete denial that we will be celebrating Mary Grace’s first birthday soon, I could not resist this ribbon when I saw it. See, mom, I do dress my daughter in something other than polka dots, thankyouverymuch.
