It's the Thought

...that counts, right? I spent a good deal of my morning making my daughter a bow board for her mysteriously multiplying bows.


I covered an OLD cork board with batting and the fabric and carefully stapled it so that the lines would be perfectly straight. I cut out coordinating ribbons and stapled them on the board and hanging down from the board--making sure that they, too were perfectly straight.

I must admit, I was pretty pleased with my end result. "Cute!" I thought....

THEN....

I started adding the bows....and bows....and bows....and bows. I ended up with this:


Do you get my point, here? You can't even see the cute fabric or the super straightness of all my lines! So, I decided to share it here so that somebody will have seen my handiwork.

It's the thought that counts, right?
