Of course, I had to add the bonus challenge...my 8 year old had a Tom the Turkey project due the next day.
Have you heard of Tom the Turkey? He is a turkey that needs to be dressed up in a disguise so he can escape ending up on someone's dinner table. Lucky for him, he is just on an 8 1/2 x 11 inch piece of paper, so no one would want to cook him up anyway, but he did need a disguise none-the-less.
DH took one look and said, "You have got to be kidding me! You are the crafty one in the family! You should be helping with this!"
Unfortunately, I had to go, so I just left the both of them with a pat on the back, kiss on the forehead, and words of wisdom...you guys will be fine! I am sure at this point DH wanted to give me the bird, but instead he just sighed.
You might be wondering why it took me so long to blog about this little project. Well, there is good reason.
I arrived home at 9:30...DH was watching TV. He seemed fine...no obvious battle scars, kids were in bed and the house was relatively picked up.
"So, how did Tom come out?"
"Fine," he replied, almost cocky, "but I could not find any colored paper in your craft stuff."
***ALARM RED, ALARM RED, ALARM RED***
"Ummm...you needed colored paper? Well, what about the construction paper the kids have upstairs?"
"Oh, they have that?" he questioned.
Well yes, I thought, of course they do!
"Yeah, I just went and grabbed some from this bin here. Sorry, it kind of fell over and went everywhere."
"Um hum"....with a ton of control in my voice, as if my dear son's school project was worth more than my pretty, pretty papers we all know I have a little addiction to. And then I saw it...still in the cutter...the evidence. My heart skipped a beat...they used my Bazzil shimmery cardstock! On a TURKEY!
Dang Bird. I only wish I could find him...I would stuff him something fierce! Unfortunately for me, he is hiding out somewhere in a MegaMan costume made of shimmery Bazzil cardstock...
