I'm a sucker for a theme. I really, truly am. When I have to answer those "What three words best describe you?" questions, I usually put something like "enthusiastic", or-- perhaps more appropriately, "ENTHUSIASTIC!!!!!!" :)
So Riley's preschool teachers didn't know what they had in store when they asked the kids to wear red today in order to celebrate Clifford's birthday. See, we don't wear a ton of red in our house, so what's a girl to do but to rush out to Jo-Ann's and buy varying shades of red fabric?!
When I started making Riley-girl's outfit, I had no clear vision except that I wanted a variety of fabrics, some ruffles, and sweetie-bell sweats in red.
