My mother came bearing two as gifts the other day. TWO of them!! My mother will often do this --she is a very generous person. When she sees something she thinks we will enjoy (her/me/ my kids), she picks it up and surprises us with it. We are all very crafty people in our house, you see.
I thought my mother did this out of love. Then, I tried to USE the Rainbow Loom. Now, I think she may be trying to kill/ blind me for life. I've spent the last few days trying to figure out what I could possibly have done to piss her off so badly, but nothing. . .NOTHING that would warrant the Death Device that is the Rainbow Loom comes to mind.
But then. . . then one loads the rubber bands onto the loom and tries to manipulate them with the crochet hook thingy and BLAMO!!!! - Rubber bands are flying everywhere-----around one's head, at one's cats, in one's eyeball. . . .
This thing is supposed to be geared toward kids in the 8 years or above bracket. Holy hell - really? What kind of magic powers do kids have that make them able to use these things????
Hmph. Well. . .my mother (in all honesty) is probably NOT trying to kill me.
I think I need Rainbow Loom lessons from Jen's daughter.
PS - Had a lovely day with Mel and my mom yesterday, warming up for Madrona. We made a road trip out to Tolt Yarn and Wool. Really can't say enough nice things about that place <happy sigh>. There were a few nice acquisitions made, but more on that later. . .
