MAKE-DO PT.5 & RED RIBBON WEEK

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 24 ,2012


 TECHNICALLY the Make-Do challenge is over


check it out

pt.1  pt.2  pt.3  pt.4    pt.6
but over here in my neck of the woods,
 we got 1 more week to go.
YOU HEAR ME?!
 You all gotta hold on 1 more week hahaha

 I will say though,
I didn't shop for anything,
 except food.

Not shopping wasn't hard,
it was knowing I couldn't in theory,
that made me want to lol.

Does that make sense?


here

Its like the child who is oblivious to their surroundings.
A parent/adult usually points it out,
advises them NOT to wander off
 & subsequently causes the child to be curious about it.
That was me.
But I didn't "wander off", I promise!

 I got to flex my Make-Do "muscle"
and prove that I still got it.

here
 GRANNY YOU still got it!!!!
lol
Check out THE SISTERS FOUR to learn about their experience
with the Make-Do Challenge.


Aside from NOT shopping,
I've been happily busy with lots of activities.
