But did you know that when I get really excited about something I get really really "high" on life/that excitement/ and then I come crashing down afterwards? That is exactly what happened to me this past weekend. I spent Friday in a whirlwind of excitement getting ready for my grand kids birthday party on Saturday, and then spent Saturday enjoying the party and the kids to the hilt! My adrenalin was flying high. It's a natural high, although the bit of sugar I partook of with ice cream cake at the party didn't help, it added to. So on Sunday, the party over, we were home...I experienced the biggest let down I'd felt in ages. The down is always in balance with the up...so this was way down. My daughter had handed me a pile of fabric on our way out the door with the message: "Make what ever you want with this but don't bring it back here in any form, sell it." (I guess she is on over load with grandma's stuff/art). So when I finally dragged myself upright from my down and got myself to my cutting table and sewing machine I created this, and let it be known, that it made me happy to make it, and I had a very normal balanced up day today! I think it would look adorable in a kids room. I'm putting it in my ETSY store. It has a hanging sleeve for easy hanging too. Happy Bloomin' Tuesday!
