I know for a fact that Ruby has these desires every now and then. Like when we had a 'discussion' about why she couldn't have plastic High School Musical Party Bags that she'd seen in Tescos. 'But EVERYONE HAS THEM, Mummy!'
Everyone who knows me knows I would NEVER allow that to happen. And I'm sure all of you out there agree with me.
After Ruby's momentary lapse of sense had faded she agreed that a handmade party bag was the way to go. And after we found these fab scarves (pink - tick) in Gap reduced to £1 each (price - tick) she was more enthusiastic than ever.
What's more, she has had so much enjoyment being part of the process, than simply handing money over at the checkout. This morning, along with her friend Sadie, who knows all about homemade is best, we've cut out the fabric, chosen ribbons and threaded them through for the ties.
I think she's rather proud of the outcome and will love handing them out tomorrow filled with all our handmade goodies.
(Thankyou all for your feedback on the keyrings...I think the consensus is that I can go ahead AND that people might actually buy them!)
