I was a SAHM for many, many years to four beautiful kids! I currently work full time and teach a card class at least once a month at my local senior center. My kiddos aren't so little any more...they are 28, 25, 22, and 19. I homeschooled until they went to high school and loved almost every minute. I married my college sweetheart and we're celebrating more than 25 years! He is wonderful and puts up with my cluttered crafts that seem to take over just about any flat surface in the house. We are dedicated sports fans for the kids; some people think we're nuts! We are super excited to have four beautiful grandchildren with soon to be five!
My daughter has her senior prom tonight and she went with a big group! Looked like they were going to have so much fun! The theme this year is a masquerade ball, so I got to make her a mask. I started with this:
I spray painted it gold and then went to town with it. I had way too much fun and she was very pleased!
Her dress was an olive green color and it went very nicely with the mask. The black design is done with a sharpie; the flower and peacock feathers are put together with a gluber (two really); I used green stickles for the lips and around the eyes, and lots of bling from my stash. The beads around the top were glued on and were just a string of beads directly from the store. I love it!!
