Let me show you all Exhibit A
Say hello to all of Caroline's eyeliners. Alllllll 34 of them. 32 of which are in the same shade of BLACK. Now, why does one need 34 eyeliners? Great question. I have no earthly idea. I think I must have some subconscious quest to find the perfect eyeliner, which results in me buying every single new black eyeliner that comes out. To be honest, I had no clue I had this many, until Kevin was giving me grief over returning from the grocery with yet another black eyeliner pen. While trying to prove to him that I didn't own as many as he thought, I totally and completely shot myself in the foot. Needless to say, I'm officially on eye-liner lockdown. Dear ole Kev challenged me to not buy any more "of that black paint stuff" until I was out.
Ohhh, okay- thats my ticket to getting early parole! I'm sure some of those bad boys are dried up by now, right? False. Soo utterly false. And lets review how Caroline shot herself in the other food.
So, I proceeded to test out every eye liner to check on their usability status. As you can see, that uh, didn't quite work out well for me. The Universe is clearly playing a cruel joke on me because out of all 34, not a one was unusable. Just perfect. Well played, Kev. Well played.
So, clearly, I've had to find something else to occupy my time versus continuing my mission to find the perfect eyeliner. In turn, I have gotten pretty obsessed with what we decided to do for my niece for Christmas.
At 3 years old, Riley loves loves loves to play dress up.
Super cute, right? So about a month ago, we were at a craft fair, and some woman was selling these Tutus for about $40 a piece. I was beyond tempted to buy one of them for Riley because it was done in UK colors. (Come on- Riley's generation are the future UK fanbase, so it just makes sense to invest in them early :) ) However, I resisted because A) I thought the price was ridiculous and B) the Tutu had very little fluff behind it. I kept telling Kevin that I thought I could probably figure out how to make one. So last weekend, I marched myself to Hobby Lobby & figured out what I would probably need to make one.
Low & behold, a plethora of Tutus were born!!!
How fun are those???? And not to be out- done by the weak UK Tutu we saw at the craft fair, I constructed this little number for Riley to wear on Game Days.
My one issue lied in the fact that I didn't have a 3 year old around to model my handy work, soooo I had to kind of get creative to see what they looked like....
Hudson, along with Kevin, was none too pleased by his new modeling gig. Homeboy refused to move with that on, and literally glared at me the entire time. Hrmmph. Whatever, boys. As long as this girl likes it,
thats all it matters :)
Anyway, because I took a ridiculous amount of enjoyment out of making those for my niece, I've decided I think I'm going to start selling them. No worries, yall- I'm not gonna be charging $45 or anything along those crazy lines. They'll definitely be under $25, and possibly even under $18, depending on the size needed. I'm dying for some feedback, so please feel free to let me know what yall think!
Mmmkay- thats it for now!
