These were some of my favorite childhood games. When we had to stay inside for recess on rainy days, I looked forward to playing "Heads Up, Sevens Up", "Simon Says" and others, but my favorite game was, "Button, Button, Who's Got the Button". I'm playing that game today except the button in question is a 4 x 5 inch rectangle of extra thick pellon and the players are me, my husband and two children, ages five and two.
And I'm posting today to say that my favorite childhood game is no longer "Button, Button, Who's Got the Button" because 4 x 5 piece of stiff pellon has driven me to madness! Last week I cut out four 4 x 5 inch rectangles to make fabric postcards. I made one and then got distracted with fabric stationery with every intention of coming back to the postcards. And I did. I made two more postcards with the fabric for the fourth one cut out and ready to go, but my last of these little buggers is missing. This stuff was one of my crafty splurges (that's code for it was bloomin' expensive), and I am DETERMINED to find it! I've asked the three other players - husband, Peanut and Monkey. I've turned my house upside down. I've looked through fabric piles. I've even rummaged through the garbage, and I don't have a clue where it could be.
Aaaarrrrgggg! Where could it be?
What have you lost lately? Please someone tell me I'm not alone in this madness!
Craft on . . . I will if I can find this little rectangle!
I try to teach my kids good manners. I'm not sure how successful I've been though. But when I hear them say "please" or "thank you", I know my persistence is paying off. I try to use good manners on my blog too . . . giving credit where credit is due by linking back to projects or ideas from other crafty bloggers. I ask you to do the same. If, in some rare instance, you are inspired enough to blog about something I tried or use an idea you find here, please link back to me (if it's my idea) or the original blogger. Feel free to use my original ideas and tutorials for personal use only (gifts or self) not for profit!
