I love Jackie's bright wheels, which you can see here. So today I played around and made one. I think this will be a practice run, but it's still cute and soooo much fun to make. The colors are not true on here- the green is a bright lime and the purple is almost neon in real life. To make it, I cut a big circle out of a sheet of posterboard, then cut it into sixteenths and ended up with a piece that looked like a slice of pizza. I traced that onto another piece of cardboard and then added a seam allowance and that was my template. Worked like a charm.
I totally impressed my children with my circle-making skills: I can make a circle using a piece of string and a pencil. Who knew? So they each got their own circle to color and stickerize. Good times, people, good times.
Today is my birthday, and I got some awesome gifts: Paul bought me new scissors! Yay! I am probably one of the few women who would be thrilled over scissors, so he really should consider himself lucky. My FIL gave me a gift certificate to the LQS and so did my boys! (I think their daddy may have had something to do with that, because when I opened it, they eagerly asked, "What is it!? What is it!?" I also got a nice mirror from my parents, so now I need to find somewhere to hang it... that redecorating thing may happen sooner than I thought.
