all this week has been "spirit" week at A's preschool. let me be perfectly clear here. the sole reason i had children was to participate in fun events and dress them up to my hearts desire, also, they give me excuse to craft things at the last minute. =) jk.. kinda! haha today was wear your favorite team shirt or colors. we're from the south and highschool/college football is HUGE. there are 2 large college teams in our state *one of which is ranked number 5!* but their shirts are expensive! and plus.. we're not like everybody else, we root for a completely different team.
i guess because of the 2 big colleges the stores don't think about selling other team shirts. and even if they did, i wasn't paying $24 for a stupid tshirt! so last night i went into her closet and got out a white tshirt and rummaged through my craft stuff for some paint. don't judge me... but the paint i used is from when i was a senior in high school... 6 years ago. lol. i didn't have any green so i mixed blue and yellow til i got a good color. i traced the U off of the university of miami's website onto printer paper (because i was too lazy to walk to the other room to actually print it lol). i outlined it in black marker so i could see it through the shirt and then i traced it onto the shirt with a pencil. i painted it with regular cheap paintbrushes and the end result looked pretty dang good if i do say so myself! =D
but was i done? no, of course not. i had to make some bows.. cause that's what any mad woman does at 11:30 at night when they have to get up at 5 am the next morning! lol
if yall are interested i can make a video on how i make the bows, just let me know!
i took her spider web design braids out this morning and put her hair in 2 piggy puffy buns and put in the clippies. she was quite impressed with how she looked. she's a daddy's girl all the way and it made her proud to be wearing "daddy's team" on her shirt.
please ignore that 1 bun.. her daddy had knocked it with his backpack and had it lookin all funny, i didn't notice til we had gotten in the car. luckily i had time to fix it before i sent her off to school!
