As I finished her crown I felt gratitude and not because I was done with this project. In fact, I enjoyed this project.
I felt gratitude for another reason. While sewing I thought to myself, if I were to purchase a crown like this I might spend between twenty to fifty dollars. I felt gratitude because I have the ability to give my children gifts that I would want them to have even though our budget doesn't include a fifty-dollar felt birthday crown.
If life gives you lemons, make lemonade.
