It's been a long day.

I was at work today for 11 1/2 hours. That was about 10 hours too long. I am going to bed. And I hope I don't wake up for at least 11 1/2 hours. I think everyone should sleep longer than they work.
Who is with me?

I agree you should sleep longer. I'm all for sleeping when as soon as it's dark and not waking up till it's light. Great for the winter.

Some days I wish I could sleep all day. Wouldn't that be nice?

So, I was going to tell you how I made the letters, but it wasn't the best way, and if I ever made something like it again I would do it differently.
See, I had seen the idea in a magazine originally, but for the life of me couldn't find it again. In the magazine, I think they had kindof embroidered the edges of the letters, and it was all sewn onto a banner.

I printed the letters on my computer, glued it to cardboard, then cut out the letters. Then I spray glued the fabric on top, cut around and made little darts so I could fold it under and glue-gunned it to the back. You see?

But, it was so much work for nothing really. If I did it again I would just use patterned paper. Then I could just print the letters right onto the patterned paper and glue that to heavier cardboard, then cut it. That would eliminate the whole long glueing fabric step, which was kindof worthless since I didn't ever do the embroidery anyway.

Well, there you go, another long comment. ;) Let me know if you don't understand something.

You guys made very cute M&Ms.
