A Bonafide Daddy's Girl

[Image Source]
It's true.  I don't deny that I'm a "Daddy's Girl."  This evening a major feat was tackled - I got my taxes done.  Yippee!  I n-e-v-e-r wait this late, but since the government decided not to shut down last weekend, I decided to do my part and hurriedly got my information in before the deadline.  (Just kidding.  I would have done my part anyways, being a good citizen and all.)

Anyways, after we left the accountant's office (this was an out-of-town trip), my dad took me to Wal-Mart to look for piping.  And he didn't complain or anything.  No, I still walked out of Wally World without the piping, but I was impressed that they still had a fabric and crafts center and some piping to choose from.  Instead, I decided to purchase some cotton fabric in the color I wanted and I will try to make my own "makeshift" piping, seeing that I don't have any cotton cord.  I also found one other item for my small quilt-like project.

Armed with Easter candy for the kiddos, a new accountant with an appreciation for the arts and crafts (yes, he even told me some places to shop for unique fabrics because of the diverse population in that city), and a Daddy with a listening ear, I feel truly blessed.

p.s.  On a side note, I'm really itching to take these afro twists out.  They have been a major time saver, but I miss my own hair texture, so I will persevere through the end of the month.  Then, out they go.  It will have been 2 1/2 months.  :-)

Happy Crafting,


  1. Congratulations on completing your taxes! That is something I dread every year due to the boringness of the paperwork! ~Val

  2. It's funny that you mentioned Hell-Mart's craft section. I was just there yesterday and was so disgusted I thought about posting about my disgust. I am mad that they no longer carry bolts of fabric. I got some of my best stash from there. Years ago I got a whole bunch of knits for $1/yd! Now it seems that they (and chain craft stores in general) just want to sell cookie-cutter supplies. How is it crafting if everything is pre-cut, pre-designed and pre-created for you? Sorry to rant...okay, I'm gonna go post about this now.
