I've added a new item to Shut the Front Door.
Before I had Lorelai, I had no idea stuff like this was even necessary. I thought all restaurants gave crayons and coloring books. I thought that restaurants were probably the only place a child would get restless. I did too much thinking...stinking thinking.
Then, I had Lorelai and realized that the bottom of my chic black purse quickly ended up caked with crushed crackers (totally different problem) and broken and/or melted crayons. Every time I leave the house, I throw a few crayons and a sheet of paper in my purse, for that off chance that we might have a two-minute wait ANYWHERE and Lorelai will get bored. Have I mentioned that JD and I have passed our A.D.D. onto our daughter?
Ooh - a butterfly.
With my new obsession of sewing, I figured I could make something to fix this problem. Enter the crayon roll. I thought I was so injenius until I realized that people have been making these for years. Whatever. Mine are better. They come with the Shut the Front Door label!
I made my first roll, then second, third, fourth and fifth. I'm addicted. As with everything I've made so far, I want to keep it all for myself. I guess this is good, but it's also bad. I have about 100 things sitting here waiting to be listed on etsy, but I can bring myself to put them up there, because I love them for me.
So, I broke down and listed ONE of the crayon rolls. It's called Elephant in the Room. Is it not adorable!?I promise to list some more this week, but I also have a bunch of other fabrics waiting around to be crafted. I know you want one, right? Or two? No problem.
If you would like to order more than one, not only will I give you a deal on the shipping, I'll also give you a deal on the rolls. Comment or email me!!!Now you can keep the kids occupied, while they create their masterpieces and you can enjoy your appetizer in peace. You can thank me later. :-)
