You guys would be so proud of me!

I totally let my girls help me with a decorate-y craft this weekend.

Okay maybe to YOU it’s not a big deal. But I am a total control freak and typically keep the house-decorating crafts separate from the kids crafts. I know, ridiculous.

You should have seen how happy they were. It was absolutely worth it! 

Anyway, we made a really simple pink and gray tissue paper tassel garland. It’s really nice to have a wee bit of color in the house – it’s been pretty plain since the Christmas decorations came down!

Some of you know how much I love the feel that garlands and banners give a space – you know, like there’s  a party starting any minuteWell add this one to all the others I love!
