I am an unfinished work, and so are many of my projects. This blog is just an odd collection of things I make and do.

Especially for You

This is not my artwork.

Our school/employer did a fundraiser event for Especially for You, which provides free mammograms and medical care for women in need in the community.

My husband volunteered for the airbrushed "tattoo," but he was wearing a long-sleeve shirt with a tie, so the only place he could think of was the top of his head.

He let the artist have free rein, and spent the rest of the day looking like this, which amused and impressed his students.  I'm so proud of him!  I am also proud of our school, ITT-Tech, for being willing to support this event.

Notice the pink tie too. All the staff was asked to wear pink. He had to borrow the tie from our son.

Measuring a Child

I am near the completion phase of a project, but I wanted to double-check the measurements, so I sent the following to my daughter-in-law so she could measure my grandson for me. 

If printed on an 8.5x11 inch sheet of paper, with no margins, the ruler should be accurate.

As it turned out, two things happened before she got this printed:

  1. She went to a fabric store and got a measuring tape.
  2. I went to a store and found a similar item in the same size and measured it.

If I had thought of that first, I wouldn't have gone to all the effort.  But I did, so I decided to share it in case it helps someone else.

Now I just need to finish up the project, which I will post when I am done, before I send it to him.
