Remember Wonder Woman?
I think I was seven when I first saw her and her amazing headband.
She would stand with her hands on her hips looking totally amazing with her hair blowing in the wind and her cape streaming out behind her and she’d stare bad guys down and look them in the eye with all the disdain of someone who rocks four inch heel boots and a giant over-sized bronze belt. Then, in a blink of an eye, she’d reach up and grab that headband and send it swirling across the stratosphere and knock that terrible no-good guy flat on his back.
I wanted to be her.
I wanted to have superpowers.
But more importantly……
….I really really really wanted that headband.
Yesterday I came close.
It wasn’t a headband and I wasn’t really facing any bad guys and that style wise that belt might be a stretch (literally) with my yoga pants and WalMart t-shirt.
But my bobby pin and I rocked a Christmas tree like we could leap tall buildings with a single bound.
Wrong superhero reference.
We decorated this entire tree by making all the ornaments and shopping the Christmas boxes up in the attic.
You see the fabric line is LIVE. I know….right?
In stores as we speak. Thousands of bolts of fabric winged their way across America to shops from Alaska to Texas.
Can we pause just a moment and let that sink in?
I think my right pinkie shook just a little in disbelief as I typed that sentence.
And to celebrate I did what any blogger does when it’s 20 degrees and I’m in the middle of decking the halls….
…..I decorated a Christmas tree.
I made simple easy ornaments like this one with wire and fabric.
Or this one.
And I made tons of these easy to make rag garlands for the tree and I’ll be sharing all these tutorials soon.
Then I shopped the Christmas tubs and came up with white snowflakes and stars and simple red ornaments and raided the trim stash for pom pom trims and finished it off with fabric as the tree skirt.
It all came together in a couple of hours.
And when I stood back and looked at the tree I was amazed.
Super powers….I’m telling you.
You can see the entire line of fabric and all the local stores that sell it here (we are adding new stores every day).
And you can order it online here.
Or maybe I should just sell those super power bobby pins instead. 🙂
