¡Viva Argentina!

I'm not a crafty person. I admire crafty people and I like to send them money for their wares on Etsy. Bob wears beautiful handmade Halloween costumes every year lovingly crafted by his Godmother, Jen. Mr. Rosenberg helps when Bob has challenging arts and crafts homework. I can only help a craft look like it's been homemade by a third grader. That's right at my skill level.

This season I am team mom for Bob's soccer team. The kids have chosen the name "Argentina" for the team. Their uniforms resemble Argentina's football team uniform, and Argentina is the home of every boy's favorite player, Lionel Messi.

At the start of each soccer season, each team is required to submit a homemade team banner for the banner competition. In years past, there has always been an artistic and crafty mom on our team who volunteered to make the banner. Not so this year. I'm sure you can see where I'm going with this.

I will be making our team banner.

I spent the morning at the craft store buying 8 million pieces of felt.  I bought PVC pipe. I threw some glitter in the basket. I bought a glue gun. I BOUGHT A GLUE GUN.

I have nine days to make this Argentina banner happen.
I will be crafting.
And it will be glorious.


  1. Aren't Argentina's colors light blue and white?

    1. They are! The Argentina team logo has light blue and yellow and green and white. Putting it all on a dark blue background with white lettering and an Argentine flag. At least, that's the plan anyway...

  2. Pinterest is your friend when it comes to crafting. :)

  3. You can do it! Can't wait to see!

  4. I'm not crafty either, but you will do great! The glitter is a fabulous idea!

  5. I love you stepping out of your comfort zone (I am not crafty either) but YAY. Can't wait to see it.

  6. I hear music...
    Don't cry for me, Argentina...

    You'll do great.
