How do you make Easter last all year?

While I was in Colorado I found fancy scrapbooking letters in the clearance section of Hobby Lobby (Why can’t we get a HL?!)that said EASTER.  

I wanted to put them on something but Easter was past and I didn’t really want something that would only be seasonal.  So I stared at them until I realized if I left out the E’s, Easter spells STAR!

I appliqued the letters to a purple tshirt that was screaming for something decorative. 

Purple is good but pink and purple together is better.  I know because Pretty Girl has a pink outfit and a purple outfit but usually combines them.  Now I just need something for the pink shirt.  And a niece or daughter with an “E” name because I have two extra Es.  (Can you think of a better reason to have a kid?)

And just for interest sake….have we reached the point in society where it’s ok to be frugal yet?  I seems to me we finally have unless you’re buying fabric.

The shirt and pants each cost $1.  The letters cost 10 cents.  So total outfit cost = $2.10.  Why can’t I look cute for pocket change?

    So is that a craft? Why don’t you just start buying all your clothes at a thrift store so you can brag about it to all your friends?
