William or Will was looking at something in the dining room and was saying he wanted "happy 2's". Happy 2's? His mom explained that for his birthday and his dad's birthday (4 days apart), they celebrated together with cupcakes with sprinkles. So because they sang Happy Birthday to you......he calls sprinkles Happy 2's. Well this grandmom's heart just melted and thought it was cutest darned thing ever! Needless to say we had Happy 2's on pancakes, on ice cream, one day just for the fun of it, Happy 2's in a paper cup and I was even forced to go to Diary Queen for custard with Happy 2's.
Now to back up some calendar-wise. Way back on Fourth of July weekend my daughters came for our Third Annual Sew-A-Thon. As always we just have the best time together. I already shared the quilt I worked on but here is something else I did. I have so many trims and needed a better way to keep them. This is how some were stored.
I downloaded a pattern from Etsy for ribbon and lace cards. I printed off a bunch. I used Modge Podge to put them on comic board and after a few coats and drying time, cut them out and viola'.......I made ribbon cards for neatly storing my trims. They are roughly 3 by 5. I debated about punching a hole in the top so I could store them on a ring. I guess I can always go back and do that.
I am very happy with the result but believe it or not, I need to make some more! and probably get a bigger basket!
This should be a quick lunch-time stitch. After I finish this I'd love to start to Laundry room series.
Until next time, thanks for stopping by and keep on stitching.
