Starfish Hairpin

First off, I have to apologize for disappearing on you guys for half a month (yikes, was it really that long?  Sorry…)  My family had a bit of a crisis, but thank God everyone is healthy and happy once again.  I was constantly thinking about getting back to my readers during my absence.  But day after day was continually filled with chaos, and I never got the chance.

There’s something you should know about me.  It’s one of those things that’s just NOT mentioned in my family, especially around my sweet, darling little parrot daughter.  I can clearly imagine standing in a busy line moments before Maddy decides that today is the day for me to face my ultimate humiliation…

“My mommy’s a trash digger!”


Yeah… It’s a problem, I know.  BUT I JUST CAN’T HELP MYSELF! Especially when my trash digging ends up looking as cute as this:
