Iron Craft 5 - Hey Buddy, Can You Spare a Dollar?

You would think with my love for the Dollar Store that this project would be right up my alley:

For this challenge we are taking a little inspiration from Project Runway and giving you a dollar store challenge. Show us your thrifty side and what you can make with supplies from the dollar store. (courtesy of Just Craft Enough)

I had big plans, but somehow things have gotten away from me in the past few weeks.  The online shop is doing tremendously well and I've been busy catching up with everything.

So I kinda crapped out and made a little project in the two weeks I had, instead of going big.

What did I make out of some elastic, two squishy balls and some embroidery thread?

Ta da!

What on earth is that you say?

It's a fun new hair accessory.

I don't know why I thought that wearing happy face balls in my hair would be fun, but it totally is!

And Terry gets a kick out of saying, "Tawny, you have balls in your hair" about 256,964,394 times a day.

So mature.

The kids think mommy is very pretty when wearing them.  And it makes me feel happy too!
