It's funny what inspires us to be creative.
I was going through my stash of stickers and found
these Martha Stewart labels. I loved the edges and thought to myself,
these would make lovely little lace collars!
I made little faces to go with them, chose papers and colored pencils.
and came up with these little ladies. And I couldn't resist naming them
and adding a few 'tongue-in-cheek words about each one!
I also added little 'satin' mats from the dollar store!
Betty smells like lavender, gives you a hug every time she sees you,
listens to your problems and tells you how wonderful you are.
She makes the world's best chocolate chip cookies and,
although she's not that much older than you,
you want to call her Grandma.
Her beauty is - well, annoying - but she has a heart of gold,
so you try to overlook her assets.
She cooks like a dream, is generous to a fault
and can be very funny.
Just don't expect to be the focus of attention
when you walk down the street with her.
She looks like a young girl, but is actually 33.
This is the only dress she owns, and she would prefer to be in jeans
and a tee shirt. She has series tickets to the Red Sox, a golden retriever
and a cape cod house she painted herself.
She drives a jeep and is happiest when fishing with her two nephews
at the family cabin on the lake.
What can we say?
She has been treated like a princess her whole life,
so she see nothing wrong with
wearing a tiara to the supermarket!
She loves to read psychological mystery books,
has three cats and, although she doesn't smoke,
has an extensive collection of ceramic ashtrays.
She is down-to-earth and completely honest,
and could be the best friend you ever had.
As you can see, I became quite caught up in these ladies.
Do they remind you of anyone you know?
Hope you are enjoying a terrific day!
