Cyber Monday + Massive Shop Restock = Funday!

Just wanted to let you know that my Shop is fully restocked! More bags than I have ever before offered at one time - so exciting :)

In addition, there are 9 Limited Edition Holiday bags now available in both One Skein Bags and Sheepie Sacks. These are Very. Limited. In fact, I just listed them last night and already a couple are down to the last one...

And finally, I'm jumping on the Cyber Monday Madness Train and offering Free Shipping on all orders  (US residents only) today and tomorrow (deal ends at midnight PST on 11/27). The coupon code to enter at checkout is CYBERSHEEP.

Pot O' Gold at the End of the Headband, er, Rainbow

Right. So just when this poor little blog of mine thought it could relax and retire- Surprise! Here's a new post! And I cannot think of anything even close to a clever transition so why don't we just jump in.

My kids are celebrating St. Patrick's Day at school today and all week G had planned to wear green ribbons in her hair because her school uniform is decidedly not green. However, last night I received an email from her teacher saying that today was a Free Green Dress Day- no uniforms required. G was very excited but decided, somewhat inexplicably, that this wardrobe change required a change of plans for her hair as well. That, since I'm wearing green, mama, I need something other than just a green ribbon in my hair.

O-kaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay, not sure of the logic there but far be it from me to figure out the inner workings of a six year old mind. Being the pushover I am *ahem* I said sure, I'd come up with something shamrock-y, St. Patrick's-ish for her hair. Probably a headband of some sort.

Here's what I came up with:

Not too shabby for a spur of the moment project and - BONUS - I had everything on hand to make it (please excuse the iPhone picture, I'm shopping for a new camera).

Voila! Fun, festive Pot O'Gold headband and one very happy 6-year-old--- all achieved in about an hour while catching up on Project Runway All Stars, no leprechaun magic required.
