PS Do you know how hard it is to draw the world in chalk? Very. It took quite a few tries. Sheesh.
First gather two sheets of your favorite tissue paper (or whatever you find in your gift wrapping stash such as polka-dot craft wrapping paper), fold the first one in half and half again and cut out a rectangle. You will now have four equal rectangles. Hooray! Now if only I could get chores done in a fourth of the time...
Next cut a triangle out of the bottom of your four rectangles at the same time.
Now do the same for the other color, using the first as a template.
Repeat above steps until you have as many as you would like.
So there you have it friends. Go make a pretty banner. And it doesn't even have to be for Valentine's Day...
I am off to make sure Mr. C had a better day today. He has recently discovered that the world can be a cruel place sometimes and that life is hard. It has been really difficult as his mother to watch him hurt and battered about and to know that I can NOT make it go away with just a hug and a kiss. I can however encourage and talk and listen. *Sigh* I hate watching my kids hurt. It is dumb. That is truthfully why I love Valentine's Day and other holidays. I like to take those moments and really tell my children what they mean to me. And to give them a little extra boost...a little something special to make them smile. They have to go out into the world and get knocked down and pushed around, so hopefully a few special notes of encouragement and fun times will help them through the not-so-fun ones. I hope.
