Not sure...


Well we've moved in-that was the easy part. Decorating is what has me stumped! The girls rooms are coming along. That is all except Grace's lamp shades. Just a little thing but boy does it bother me. LOL! We had ordered matching shades with the lamps but the company sent the wrong color. We've had so many problems with this certain company that I decided not to try reordering the right color shade. Instead I bought some plain white ones with the idea that I'd decorate them. 2 1/2 months later we still have plain white shades. Not that I didn't try. I glued ribbon horizontally around the top and bottom...didn't like it. Then I took another ribbon and glued it vertically...didn't like it. So, my last attempt was fabric. I thought I'd make a kind of skirt-elastic at the top and a bit flared at the bottom. Super easy, right? Not so much for me. :)
Funny thing is, I was talking with a group of moms just the other day. 2 of the moms never use patterns to sew or recipes to cook. The other mom and I admitted to having to have both. I'm for sure a pattern girl when it comes to sewing. If not a pattern I at least need a tutorial! Something! Don't just send me out on my own. Unfortunately that's what happened with these shades.
On the positive side-they're not plain white anymore. Grace said she "loves" them. She's the kind of girl who would never say anything different. As for me...I'm still not sure....
