I think it is today, is it Greta?
I made this card last week.
Bought the present last week.
Ran out of tape to wrap it up.
So it is sitting on my table...still.
I had such good intentions, always do.
It's the follow thru that I suck at.
I knew I wanted a baseball card for the little slugger but I don't own anything baseball and didn't want to buy anything new, so I thought...Make a baseball yourself.
My first baseball was actually a tennis ball.
Max helped me the second time.
Then I added the name and it just wasn't enough.
So, I made the pennant, but my first "stick" of paper just wasn't right.
Then the lightbulb moment.
A flat toothpick!!
And I had the colors in my head to start, of course. (Go Cubs!)
One day it will actually be in the mail and on its way to little Mason, maybe he'll get his goods by next year.
Seriously, who doesn't have tape?!!!
Oh and btw....I put back many items I thought little Mason would enjoy because somebody thought it wasn't such a good idea, what boy doesn't love silly string? But there is one thing comin' down that I was told, "He's gonna strangle somebody with that thing!" Just a warning....
