Recently my good friend and rock star Momtographer Vanessa Segars posted a link on my facebook page, and being that I have the attention span of an ant I was reluctant to click on it, but am I ever GLAD I did! I'm not really a crafter, I like to think of myself as one, but I'm not. I usually don't like them, and I'm not really very good at it. But, after watching this video, I may have to rethink my stance on the subject.

Last year for Halloween, my little one wanted to be the moon. As in the big orbital ball in the nighttime sky. Go ahead, Google "moon costume." See what you come up with. Precisely nothing that actually looks like a moon, right? So after weeks of brainstorming and days of construction, our creative two-year old was slipped into a black cat-suit, wrapped with two battery packs of led-lights and very carefully maneuvered into a giant chineese ball lantern. She was, indeed, the moon.
This time last year, I was stuck in a discount store, staring in disbelief. It was my daughter's first school Valentines exchange, and, of course, I wanted to do something special. Low on time (and funds) I bought a bunch of plain cards to decorate by hand sure that I would follow through. And then, with best intentions thrwarted, I was back in the early morning hours of Valentines day, grabbing whatever was on the shelf. Sigh - nothing says "I love you" or "Be mine" like a perforated cartoon character in a cape.
