Me: "Don't you love this?" The girls: "Yes."
Me: "I really think you guys should buy this for inspiration. Put it on your board. Look how neat these are."
Them: big pause...."No, not right now." I rolled my eyes. I really wanted to buy it for me. I have a thing for paper, fabric & little dolls. I just don't have any time. And I have plenty of magazines.
It's spring break this week. Yesterday, I had two hours to kill while the kids were at the movies. Again, I was right there by the fabric store.
Me: "I'm right by the store, do you want me to go buy that magazine?" Bella: "I really like it, I don't know." Ugh....I think I just wanted adolescent permission to buy it.
danitashop is the cover artist for the magazine. Now I have her address, would you like it? Just joking, Danita.
Pictures from her blog (hope she doesn't mind, I need to email her):
Well, I am buying that magazine tomorrow -- if it's still there, it will be our giveaway for Thursday or you can have your pick of any other pattern or magazine.
See, now I have permission & justification.
