Express yourself.

I channeled Martha Stewart today.

Not the money-hungry corporate entity, but the 'Take 300 one-inch squares of coordinating material and stitch them together to make a keepsake washcloth' Martha Stewart.

Matthew has to wear an angel costume for the Christmas pageant. I was actually going to go to Party City and see if they had leftover Halloween costumes. I go back and forth. Some days, I'm super mom. Other days, it's whatever easy and fast food. Today, was the former.

I took several white coat hangers, formed two into a pair of wings and covered them with sparkly snow blanket. That was then edged with silver garland. Coming off the middle of that is another hanger that goes up to a halo surrounded with silver garland. Then a white pillowcase became a 'gown' with neck and arm holes and a silver garland belt.

God help him. I hope somebody else has this flimsy homemade angel costume and Matthew doesn't look the fool. He'll be a well-loved fool, but this IS Plano. Talk about channeling Martha Stewart!
