One day I could hear my son Aaron laughing hysterically in the next room or our office. Then I heard him say “MY MOM DESIGNED THAT?!!!” I was cringing, not knowing what he was looking at. When he told me it was the Santa Toilet Cover I laughed right along with him. Isn’t that the point of it sometimes? – just make people laugh and it’s all worth it : > What do you think?
I posted this story on out Maggie’s Crochet Facebook page in August of 2012.
