Just so you know I will almost do anything for beads. NOT! (whoa flash back). I have never celebrated Mardi Gras because I have always thought of it as an "adult" party. I never understood how a day of confession led to a carnival of debauchery but I guess you got to have something to confess before Ash Wednesday, the beginning of Lent. But this year I have decided to jump on the band wagon and have a bit of my own sharpified party.
I was looking for ideas on what to do that would be kid friendly and I came across this. So feel free to donn a mask and join me in my virtual party. I have also come across a recipe that you can use to make beads for your own beaded necklace.
What ever you decide to do today have fun. Tomorrow is the beginning of Lent (if I understand correctly). I'm not catholic but It would be interesting to me to see if I could give up a vice for 40 days. I don't know what I will give up yet but I think pop should be at the top of my list. Wow that sounded a little "eat drink and be merryish".
