Making ordinary things beautiful

Bet you can't guess what we're going to do tomorrow!

As expected, the consignment sale brought good deals on a pile of white onesies, all in different sizes. Scratch that off my list. We bought rubber bands, gloves and some Rit dye and we will be tie-dyeing tomorrow, probably in the kitchen (where there's no carpet). I learned to tie-dye from my 11th grade Chemistry teacher Mr. DuBose. I left that class with two spiral-dyed t-shirts, one of which I wore to have my wisdom teeth removed the following year. Ouch. (Is it strange I remember that?)

I also tie-dyed with my friend Megan in our church circle. As a matter of fact, we tie-dyed our underwear. Megan is pretty deep and came up with a lovely Christian reference: God takes ordinary things and makes them beautiful for us, and that's what we were doing. We took our ordinary white underwear and made them bright and beautiful. At the same time I made Suzi this little onesie:

Wasn't she a little pumpkin? She was just four months old. I hope the t-shirts we do tomorrow will be this good!

Sounds like fun! I'll trade you. I am going to house clean this afternoon. :( I wish I could afford someone to do the basics week. I just don't have the time!
BTW- what are doing up so late?? LOL
