Happy May Day!
Actually, I only realized it was May Day this morning. It's frightening how poorly I keep up with stuff like this. Must be because my calendar is categorized only into Weekends, Driving To School days, and Days To Recover From Driving To School. Anyway, so at about 745 am, I decided maybe we should make some May Day craft-type things.
So we dipped into our massive cardstock stash (thanks to this project), printed and cut out handles, got out our gargantuan sticker collection
and made little cones. It was a very fast project- we stapled everything together and then did sticker embellishment. Our initial plan to make just six cones for our immediate neighbors exploded into a mass-production effort to supply all the girls' preschool classmates (albeit a day late) with baskets of their own.
It is a good thing we aren't in short supply of stickers, since we really used them.
After lunch we're heading out to Target to buy more treats to fill the cones, and then we're heading out to ring some doorbells. If this post sounds manic and emergency-like, it is, because the sky is threatening to rain this afternoon, and we're aiming to be out and be done before that happens. Wish us luck!
P.S. If you're a neighbor who also happens to be a blog reader (that means you, K!), pretend you didn't see this post, OK?
