Thinking Purple, Green & Gold

We are gearing up for Mardi Gras around here and I am feeling lucky to be living in NOLA where the next celebration is always right around the corner. Luz picked out these beautiful Irises for Jamesy's birthday the other day because they reminded her of Mardi Gras, and I suppose that's when I realized how much I had to do before the parades start rolling.

So, while we are not busy tracking down the elusive McKenzie's king cake, we are considering sleeping arrangements, discussing menus, working out the logistics of parade routes and SAMS runs, and trying to create the perfect MG accessories.

This year I was inspired by a beautiful MG tutu and decided I had to make one. After purchasing the supplies I stared at the bag of goods for a few days, too scared to get close enough to unload it, too insecure to even begin the process of putting it together. Jessie came to my rescue tonight and, if it turns out as cute as the individual parts look so far, Luz and her friends are in for a real treat. This craft is a bit labor-intensive but I think it will be worth the effort. I promise to post a picture of the finished product.

So much fun! Can't wait to see pictures of the tutu. I hate that we're going to miss MG (again) this year, but it's for a good cause.
