GLO and LESLIE: DO NOT READ THIS POST. IT WILL RUIN YOUR SURPRISE…..
I saw these cute things last week in some little girly trinket store. Of course, when I see them, who do I think of?? None other than THE Gloria Hampe, and her Host Family prodigy, Lester.
Along with my mailing ministry I am trying to maintain to the wonderful people at the JH Ranch, I thought this would be the perfect thing to send to Glo and Lester.
First, I checked out the price tag. OVERPRICED. Second, I called a local store near where I live and they only had ones with the initial “L”…no “G’s.”
After singing my sad song to CT3, he said, Lauren, you are creative…why don’t you just MAKE them. Hmm, the wheels started to spin. I can be slightly creative (at times) I thought, but then there are always those times that it ends up looking like a 3 year olds craft-project-gone-bad-but-really-cute-cause-they-are-three-and-they-tried type thing. Although, the fact that I am not 3, people just think I have made a mess and am not so crafty…
I pondered for awhile and today at lunch I did a Michael’s drive by and got the goods. The vote of confidence from CT3 drove me to do it, and I will say the project came out pretty good (even if I say so myself!!)
I made one for Glo, one for Lester, one for myself (trial one) and one for Mom. Surprise Ma. You will read it/see it here weeks before you get it at home, but at least you will have it to look forward to!! Glo’s and Lester’s will go in the mail tomorrow and I don’t think they read my blog…If they do, they will see their surprise and will ruin it. If you read it and are near them, DON’T tell them!
Anyway, what do you think?? You likie?? I am thinking of going into business with these puppies…feel free to begin posting to place your orders. Seriously.
