Okay I would be lying if I didn't tell you that I had learned about these "looms" a few weeks when I so graciously volunteered to help with Elle's Halloween party at school. Background: I get off work early the day before Halloween and head to Elle's school (in stilettos, a high waisted skirt, and a black blouse) to help all the teachers and "room mothers" put on a fun Halloween party for both kindergarten classrooms. They have stations sent up - bean bag toss, throw the ring around the witch hat, make a ghost out of tissue paper, etc... Guess which station Mrs. Black Sweater Stiletto Kotte gets? Oh the station where you put powdered sugar donuts on yarn and the kids limbo and try to eat the donut off the string without using their hands - fun? Mwah ha ha... Do you think my station was planned the minute I walked in the door - UM... HELLO??? Anywhooo... I had fun, Elle loved I was there, and yes I rocked the donut station in the stiletto's like this heel wearing mama should:)
Back to the topic: at the party the kids had on these bracelets and/or necklaces. I told a few kids how cute they were and asked who made them - to each replied - duh, Mrs. Kotte - me! It's the "rainbow loom" - the whaaaaaaaaa? I let it go - later on that night I asked Elle about the "loom" and she said she heard of it but had no clue... So... here we sit... 2 weeks later, 2 invites in, and no loom? Guess what I will be doing during lunch - hunting down a dam* rainbow loom for her party this Saturday... and in the evenings I guess I will be teaching myself and ELLE how to use this darn thing. Oh... midterm you are going to have to wait - I have to learn to make a "Rainbow loom" ensemble. I heard Youtube is your best bet - WHAT? Ain't no-one got time for this... This is for the girl who STILL doesn't have her IPOD Shuffle set up...
Guess what's on every one's Christmas list this year? I hope you like rubber band accessories!
