I totally asked for it. Tonight, as we were sitting down to dinner, I asked the kids what they thought I should title my post for today. I asked if they had any good names for my dog I created out of driftwood.
“Dog?” asked my daughter. “That doesn’t look like a dog. That looks like a fox!” and from there my kids circled the dinner table singing “What Does a Fox Say?”
Does everyone know this video by now? The kids are going wild for it. It is the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever seen or heard, but just like a car accident, I just can’t help but peak and maybe sing a little!
So that is it. Even though I designed it to be a chevron dog it is now 100% fox.
Funny how that works.
Last night I posted my Granny Chic winter head wrap. It was too dark to get a photo of it on, so I took one this morning.
This was wild. My mother has my self-portrait from day #1 of my creativity challenge. I didn’t put two and two together, but as I was walking out of her house I saw it and thought to myself “this is totally freaky.” I inadvertently created the same wreath for my head as I had in my painting over 300 days ago. I had no intentions. The wreath in the painting was a floral wreath I wanted to wear to my first holy communion. My mother, still in shock that I didn’t want to wear the veil like all the other little girls allowed me to wear a crown of baby’s breath. Totally not what I wanted. I wanted red roses, mums and sunflowers just like I had seen at a hippy wedding back then.
Hey the heart wants what the heart wants. Now I have my wreath!
On my car ride home today I created a more tame version of a head wrap. This prefab was still a little to simple for my taste, so I added some yarn and sequins.
I also had enough time to make two other large flowers. I was going to add them to my scarf, but then I remembered some of these hats I had at home. Now I have some overly-bedazzeled head-gear.
I am ready to take on the cold!
