I have a blog quality control supervisor who lives at my house.
Actually, I think she is quality control, publicity, and community outreach all rolled into one.
She is a fashionista, an artist, a cheerleader and on any given day….she could give Warren Buffet a run for his money.
And today, she totally supervised the number pillow project of 2012.
The number pillow project all started with this pillow.
Bless that pillow’s heart.
I don’t think the upstairs was ever really comfortable with hosting such an inferior member of the pillow family.
And at this point, it’s going to be an uphill battle to see if the playroom will ever recover.
So when I saw these tote bags for only $4.99….with the EXACT numbers I had been trying to recreate, I knew this was the way to save face with the pillow community.
I could make these tote bags into pillows.
The pillows I originally imagined. Beautiful number pillows….from a simple tote bag.
It was my chance for a do-over.
The numbered pillow project….take two.
Quality control supervised the entire project closely.
She watched to make sure I cut off the handles correctly.
And watched as I took a picture.
She carefully observed to make sure I cut the tote bag into two matching squares……
…..and took another picture.
Quality control was there when I sewed the seams for the pillow and turned it inside out and stuffed it and sewed up the open edge and took it to the playroom…
….and documented it all with the camera.
And as I stood in the playroom admiring the new pillow…..quality control spoke up,
“Ummm….mom…..you are a photogenic mom.”
I quickly turned around and smiled at her. Photogenic, huh?
Was it the eyebrows?
Or the hair.
That was it.
It had to be the hair. I mean….I just got a cut and color.
“Thanks, honey,” I said. “You made my day.”
She looked at me quizzically and furrowed her brow….searching intently for the right words to explain.
“Yeah. That’s it. Photogenic. And you know why you are photogenic?
Because you’re a photo mom.
A photo mom…you know….a mom who’s always taking photos.”
And then, satisfied her job was done….she walked away with a smile on her face.
A photo taking mom……that would be me.
I’m just sayin’.
If the blog thing doesn’t work out…..
……I could have a really bright future. with Olan Mills.
