Today, I did something unspeakable - I went to Kmart. I just went for some hooks. Err, but I came back with some completely different hooks and a shadow box. It could have been worse. There was a lot of stationery that I was fondling. And I held a few picture frames.
The hooks are a work in progress. I rushed into painting them and I don't like what I have done, so I may have to rethink them. They look...pretty amateur. The shadow box however, has turned out rather nicely. I put some hooks in to hang her necklaces and one in the side for her bracelets. Don't look too closely to see where I put some in the wrong spot. Nor where the screw end came through the other side, so I had to cover the holes with washi. Hm. Note to self - DON'T RUSH.
And today, I was Bad Mother and sent her to school in the wrong uniform. I am also keen to get her to practise reading and to be more independent, so I have turned the magnetic side of her easel into a little noticeboard where she can put up every day what is going on. I just need to make a little something to hang off the easel to store the magnets. What do you think? Is this going to revolutionise our household?
