Noticing that the Tutus for Tanner tweetathon was showing up quite often in my Twitter stream, it dawned on me that we should incorporate it into our NotBlogHer Chicago party.
For a $5 donation, donors would get a fab picture of themselves in a tutu.
Of course, as the mom of two boys, I didn't have any tutus around the house. I stopped at Target and picked up two tutu, size 10 girls, the largest they had. It fit me like a garter, which is to say one leg per tutu.
So I quickly channeled the crafty and talented Kim and cut the tutus apart and sewed them together. At the party. Even though I was late. And talking to folks. And I goofed. And had to redo matching up the front sides more carefully this time. (Note: actual needle in hand.)
The first brave volunteer, Weasel Momma (before I joined the two skirts together)
We raised $65 for the cause. I'm off to make the donation.
