I spent a grand total of $3.75 at the craft store. Some retail therapy. They didn't have the yarn I wanted, so I just bought material to make Owen a belt (which turned out quite passable, thank you). I do have this bit of cheer to show off, though:
This is my new Big-Ass Flower Brooch. I LOVE it. So dressy and wacky all at the same time. It's really huge. When I choose the right coat to pin it to, I'll show you just how Big-Ass it really is. Big (trust me).
