i know what you're thinking. you're thinking, "hey lauren! what on earth do FLAMINGOES have to do with christmas??!" and frankly i do not have any kind of answer for you. i just really like flamingoes... (hey--what's NOT to like about a bright pink bird??!) ...and i'm especially fond of these sparkly dimensional ones from meri meri...i bet i have gone through at least 3 or 4 packs of these in the last few years. i buy them every time i see them in a store...i never have a plan for them...and yet, somehow, they ALWAYS get used.
ok, so does anybody else do that, or is it just me? what impractical crafty things have you bought on impulse...and then made into something ♥FAB♥?
