Some days, my work environment feels like Cafe Disco. Thank goodness for the co-workers who help make my job fun!
For those of you who are not fans…you should be!
Michael: When I am breaking all the rules, I’m break dancing.
Michael: Rules be damned, I want to have lunch with these people.
Michael: I am accounting on you to go to lunch with me.
Pam: If you don’t take out his battery, he just keeps going all day.
Oscar: Please don’t refer to yourself as our daddy.
Michael: Funk is the problem. And the solution.
Stanley: I would like the memory of a day uninterrupted by this nonsense.
Michael: You all took a life here today. The life of the party.
Kelly: Cafe Disco. More like Crappe Disco.
Dwight: It’s the most annoying thing. It’s like children singing Christmas carols.
Andy: I’m not sure, but I’m pretty sure I’m in a dance-off.
Michael: Cafe Disco is dead, but I can still hear the music in my head.
Angela: I didn’t come here to get wet and wild.
Michael: A lot of people doubted Cafe Disco at first, but it is a magical place.
Novelty gifts for my cafe peeps were definitely in order this year! Aprons all around!
Sylvia is a funky-stylish lady with multiple admirers within the school setting. She has an affinity for anything animal print, and is a self-proclaimed cougar.
My Inspiration: The lady from Bitchin’ Kitchen-Who doesn’t love to cook in 5-inch high lace-up patent leather stilettos? This show really intrigues me…it’s like an accident and impossible to turn away from. Nadia G. is such a caricature of….I’m not quite sure…your typical Russian Jersey bad-ass sorority girl? Regardless, I have to admit, the lady has style.
I had my eye on this pink leopard fabric for the apron however, there was less than a yard of it left when I finally made my way to the fabric store. Who the heck would buy this, and why would they need a whole bolt of it?
The Reality: This was the alternative to pink leopard fabric. Not quite as funky, but equally….animalistic.
Here is the back of the apron.
And here is the front. I went to grab Josie’s stuffed jaguar because I felt so…..
Cruella De Vil
Cruella De Vil
If she doesn’t scare you
No evil thing will
To see her is to
Take a sudden chill
Cruella, Cruella De Vil
Lorena, on the other hand, is a more serious soul. I think some days she likes me, and other days she barely puts up with me. Despite the deep sighs, eye rolls, and thinly veiled tolerance, I adore her anyway. The inspiration for her apron was something teal and earthy.
I wanted to make potholders too. After looking at purchased patterns, I finally came to my senses and realized that there must be something free on the internet instead. I found this awesome potholder tutorial. I LOVE the internet!!!
And for the truck-driving, wilderness-loving, yarn-spinning, child-wrangling male in the group…cowboy ties,
Maybe I’ll make him a manpron next year so he doesn’t feel left out.
(He wouldn’t let me take his picture. What a curmudgeon.)
