When genius strikes!!
It doesn't happen much..truly hardly ever....that genius flash of light...but sometimes it strikes. And Amen if you are actually awake and paying attention...because WOW...the happy dance is sure to follow! But, hold on, you need to think Super Slow Motion Happy Dance with no jumping or bouncing, no helicopter head, no attitude bounce, no gangnam style pony dance motion because this post-concussive brain thing of mine prohibits any sort of Ellen DeGeneres moves. I'll just keep my seat on the sofa and send my right fist up in the air with a softly spoken celebratory, "YES"! We'll call that my dance.
Here's the 411 on the flash of genius:
I was completely inspired by the adorable Sock Sorting Game on Miss Mary Liberry's blog recently. I pinned it to my "Flannelizing Soon" pinterest board and planned to make socks with heart designs. Fast forward to today- I remembered that I have mittens with hearts ...already made - see photo from a previous post!! So my laundry basket will have Mittens to Match!! Genius!! *pretending to do a happy dance*
So, I have small plastic tub for my laundry basket: It looks like this:
I'll place the mittens in here, but they're at the library now, and I am still at home. (hence pretty felt in my mini laundry basket) I can't wait to do this game!
Inspired thinking continues! Library Quine's Currant Buns, (check here) are dressed up for Valentine's day at the bakery shop! Please follow her link for the song, it's great...and new to me. Library Quine has a template as well - very cool. Have to love our Flannel Friday Family.

Big and round with a heart on top
Along came a boy with a penny one day
Bought a currant bun and took it away
Four Currant Buns in the ....
Alrighty then...maybe I have overreacted a tad! Maybe this was an Ah-ha moment and not Genius. But the temperature is ridiculously cold in Connecticut and the wind is howling and all things came together after my physical therapy appointment today! I am thinking, ahhh....
Thanks for visiting Piper Loves the Library. She's all snuggled in bed for this deep freeze and waiting for me to read her a good book. Any suggestions for Valentine books?
