Sister for Sale

For Sale

One sister for sale!

One sister for sale!

One crying and spying young sister for sale!

I’m really not kidding,

So who’ll start the bidding?

Do I hear the dollar?

A nickel?

A penny?

Oh, isn’t there, isn’t there, isn’t there any

One kid that will buy this old sister for sale,

This crying and spying young sister for sale?

My middle sister is truly a middle child, and would often sing this song on cue. What am I thinking, she still sings this song on cue!
She has a new place, and asked me to come and help her. She did not, however, tell me that she would put me in charge of a canvas. I knew she had a plan, but did not know what all she meant by her plan. She had two frames, some canvas drop cloth, and asked me to bring some stuff to her to complete this project. She made her own canvas, and sweetly informed me that I was in charge of the bigger one. Oh my! You would think with all the blog purusing that I do, I would know immediately what to do, but no, I did not. So, off to experience JoAnn’s crafts. Had a great time picking out fabric, ribbon, and paints. We had such a good time, we did not think about how much we had spent until we got the register. I had to order a sprite at dinner just to settle my nervous stomach. Brook was a trooper though and continued to have faith that everything will work out all right. Here is her project:

Brook’s Canvas:

Can you tell she was in Gifted Art?

I so think that my sister could make these and sell them. Considering that we stayed up to 4 a.m., I am thinking that she probably won't. What a good time that we had!

I will share the other canvas tomorrow.
