|These are the last four soaps using the bolder cup outline...better, no?|
I also am working more on my plastic purse idea, and decided to try some ribbon embellishment on a scrap of plastic I had left from previous projects. I think it turned out quite cute....very free and springy and vibrant. I tied the ends together, glued them so they wouldn't fray, and then tucked them under the knot never to be seen again. I think it works.
I returned home today, and I was sooooo cold as it was a below zero day here in sunny Minnesota (the sun means that it is too cold for stupid clouds and there is absolutely NO moisture in the air at all). I promptly got under the electric blanket in my bed, and remained there shivering until my husband got home. At which point I was harassed (mildly) for not noticing that it was 50ish degrees inside the house. Our heating element in our furnace broke, and it will be a few hours before a replacement one comes via my uncle who is in the heating/AC business (seriously, thank GOD for family....thanks, Bill, you are a life saver). Hubby built a fire, space heater from the garage went into our bedroom, the heated blanket went on Sylvia's bed where both kids will be sleeping soonish. AND, I am now done blogging in the STILL 50somethingdegree basement. Peace out! And pray for all those who are homeless this evening!
