the weekend was spent in a blur of playing 'catch up' with laundry, cooking and vacuuming up used dog's hair...in the mist of this drudgery, i mentioned to my man that my dottie angel 'hang tags' were eating into a lot of my creating time. "no problem" says he, "there are enough of us in this house, let's get the kids to help. it won't take long"...this is the scene when asked ~
our #4 falls to the floor weeping "i don't want to make slips"
our #3 stays very quiet and then does a great disappearing act
our #1 replies that "quite frankly this family is all nuts and i can't be around you all a minute longer" and disappears to her room...
so me, my man and our #2 started making tags 'conveyor belt' style, for your visual pleasure i give the stages in pictures...
several hours (and aching arms and wrists) later, my man turns to me and says "you're right Tif, it takes forever, we need to find a better way"...and from out of nowhere comes hope...(i'll keep you posted on the results)
and in case you thought i had forgotten, Thing Number 4 - CRUSHES. in my teens i had a huge crush on Kevin Rowland from Dexys Midnight Runners. these days i have several crushes...Orlando B. Johnny D. and Colin F. they keep an eye on me as i put the dishes away, lurking behind my cupboard doors...according to my man, he looks as good as any of them!
