Normally, I only blog about projects that involve rubber stamping, but today, I thought I'd share with you what has been taking up all my time and keeping me from my stamping.
My kids were both in marching band all through high school, and when they went off to college, they joined their universities' marching bands. Band has been a huge part of our lives for the last 10 (?) years, from Jr. High all the way through. (Although, they both decided not to continue this fall, and it has probably been harder on me than them!)
We also give the kids a special ornament each year that ties into something they'd been doing or that they really liked that year. So, when my kids were in high school, I wanted to give them marching band ornaments. They had other musical instrument ornaments from previous years, but since they were both in high school marching band, I wanted something that was specifically related to marching. I searched and searched and came up completely empty handed.
Not one to be easily daunted once I have an idea in my head, I decided that I was just going to have to make them something.
