Goodwill love

Last week Matthew took Anna on errands, so I had the chance to go to Goodwill by myself, a rare treat. Anna's pretty good at shopping at Goodwill, we usually fill the cart with kids books and that keeps her entertained, but it's still nice to be able to take as much time as I want, which is a lot of time.
On this particular trip, there was a huge basket full of craft kits. So exciting!
I've never done any counted cross-stitch, but this little Christmas dinosaur was so cute, surely I can manage him. Or Matthew can do it, I think he did cross-stitch in 4-H. (Is that embarrassing? I don't think so)
And, perfectly timed given my new fondness for felt, these sweet dinosaur ornaments.
The felt was all marked, with nice clear instructions and everything I would need, even a new needle!

And some glue...which was long ago past its time, but cute! Glu-bird. Sounds like a good name for a stuffed toy.

Estimada señorita:
Es mi ilusión invitarle a seguir a lo largo de estas semanas, a través de mi humilde blog (www.molestoluegoexisto.blogspot.com), el ensayo que realizo acerca de la dulce obra escrita por el genial Saint Exupery; El Principito. Esta breve creación tiene mucho de profundo. Pero no se trata de una profundidad plomiza, suprametafísica o hiperintelectual, ¡para nada! Todo lo contrario, el mensaje del principito es sencillo, directo y preclaro.
Mi objetivo es que juntos saquemos el máximo jugo a la brillante creación del francés… sin duda esta apasionante labor nos servirá para alegrar nuestros espíritus y crecer un poquito más.
Un animoso saludo desde la isla de Gran Canaria.

Those dino ornaments are super-cute! We might have to try to make our own...
