I May Have Gone A Little Overboard

So I saw a tweet the other night from someone who found 90s Nickelodeon fabric at their local JoAnns. “Cool,” I thought, “I’ll look it up tomorrow.” Fast forward to yesterday and me trying to find that tweet again to be sure it really said JoAnns, because I couldn’t find anything other than Ninja Turtles and Paw Patrol.

I decided to just do a regular search and found that there were at least three different shops on Etsy offering it for about $7 a yard. I’m assuming this is probably better than I will be able to find it if it really does exist inside a JoAnns store anyway, so I bought five yards. There’s at least going to be a dress out of it. As well as some other things, I’m sure. I’ll get the whole outfit going.

Don’t Let Me Loose in a Closing Office Supply Store

I’m going to start by either informing or reminding you that I am a nanny. I don’t work in an office. I’m not even some type of freelancer who does office work at Starbucks. I watch children for a living. And yet, I spent fifty dollars at the Office Depot that is closing and has everything on sale this weekend.

That’s a full set of Sharpie pens, a bunch of felt tip pens, two different kinds of Post-its, some book tabs, and some electrical tape. So they are things that are necessary. Sort of. Still probably a little overboard.

Snug and Cozy

Well, my camera is anyway. It is way too warm still to be thinking of snug and cozy for anything else.

Speaking of my camera, I have a new one that takes awesome pictures and doesn’t run on a pack of AA batteries a week. This camera, if you happen to be so interested. It was on a good sale last week. I’m not taking a picture of my camera. That is just too weird.

You know what I did take a picture of? The cover I made for my camera. A few pictures, actually. Like this one of the front:

And this one from the side:

And this one of the soft inside:

I used a plain cotton for the outer part, and some faux fur on the inside to make it nice and cushioned. I added a button and some suede thread for a looped closure. The way the flap covers the top, I can use the wrist strap of the camera to carry it in the case. A quick and easy way to have a camera case that didn’t cost anything and is much brighter than the cases offered at the store.
