Mom, I need...

.... to make a lanyard for Ms. Diane. I need to give it to her TODAY.

This is how my 10 year old greeted me this morning.
.
Before school.
.
Before work.
.
Before COFFEE.
.
Today is the last day of the school year for my kids. Ms. Diane is the after school care supervisor. She had 2 other ladies that work for her. So, I couldn't just make a lanyard for Ms. Diane. I had to come up with something for the other 2 ladies as well. Bracelets work great. When you make them the right size. The first one (green one in the picture) turned out too short. I don't measure, I just wing it. And occasionally I pay the price. Such is life.
.


I think they turned out rather nicely. Melissa picked the colors. And the design for the lanyard. She also had time to string the beads onto the wire before I kicked her out the door to catch the bus. I had to. I STILL haven't showered. Did I mention I have to work today. Guess I'll be late. Oops. Anyway, Morgan (13yo) starts school later, so she pitched in and designed the blue butterfly bracelet. I did the mulit-colored one. (Big surprise there, right?)
.
Not bad for a before-work-last-minute-project.




And here are the finished gifties.

Gotta go jump in the shower now.

Can't get to the office late AND stinky.

Oh my gosh, how do you do it? These are marvelous and they're going to love them, I love them, how could they NOT love them? Inconceivable!

You even wrapped and made the packaging pretty.

I didn't know you knew how to make lanyards! Good grief you're talented!
