Happy Tax Day!

by Erin on April 15, 2009

Okay, no one is excited about Tax Day, but here's a fantastic dress, made entirely of tax forms, to distract you:

Tax Dress

(thanks to Kariann, Renee, and Lisa for the link!)

Also: the winner of the pockets haiku contest is …

Pocket—something there?
Feel doe-soft ears and paw pads;
Kitten stowaway!

The winner is Shay, of Little Gray Bungalow! Congratulations! (Kittens? Always win.) Shay, email me for your copy of Singer Perfect Plus and the coupon for $10 off your order at MOMSPatterns (thanks to Jen).

Hahaha, that dress is fantastic! Perhaps a mite itchy … but still a great concept.

Krista April 15, 2009 at 10:37 am

Duh, it fastens in the back with IRS red tape. LOL!

Gobsmacked. Seriously. I never so much as won an essay contest when I was a kid!Thanks, Erin.

I love that dress. It is so pretty and creative. I liked Krista’s job about IRS red tape, LOL!

Oh, I loved that haiku! It was my favorite. Kittens are just irresistible. :)

Even that dress couldn’t solve my dearly beloved’s foul mood today! Not-Happy Tax Day to You!

Favoloso!! Love the soft pink color — how did they do that?Finished my taxes a week ago — whew!

Oh, excellent! Congratulations, Shay! Anybody who brings in kittens brings in teh winz, as far as I’m concerned! I loved your haiku!

Oh, I just checked out her website, where she explains it:”I mostly used the beautifully pink Child and Dependent Care 1040A forms plus some paler pink Individual tax forms.”She’s selling it on eBay. So far, the bids are at $306 and counting! Proceeds go to the great organization Heifer International.

YAY for Kitten Shay! Too cute :)I like the weaving too on that dress.

Oooh! I just added my mom dads pic from 1962! That is so cool!

Oh, I would love this dress! When my mom was little they would buy dresses made out of paper for fancy occasions (you know how hard kids can be on nice clothing). You could only wear it once or twice, but you would look fabulous at a fraction of the price!I wish they would bring that back. I’d have more closet room… I can’t seem to throw anything away, and I hate wearing the same thing over and over again…
