i must begin by apologizing. i've been completely slacking on this blog! but believe me it's not because i've been hangin out on the couch eating bon bons. the days have seriously flown by. so here's a recap of everything i've been accomplishing!
ps i've got about 6 drafts of blogs that just never got posted over all this stuff... i just decided i should consolidate! :)
the excitement of the snow day actually got to me too! i decided we should celebrate by making some paper snowflakes....
then i hung them from the ceiling with thumbtacks and my husbands fishing line (shhhhh don't tell!) so it would look like snow if falling on him while he napped. ahhhh so peaceful, huh? it gave us happy nap times for all of 3 days.
lately i've broken all my rules and become somewhat obsessed with girl hair accessories. i swore off bows and fluffy pink stuff while i was preggo with the crawler, but man i've become a sucker for the cuteness on my baby girl! so me and the scissors have been whipping out felties and ribbon bows non-stop. it was like i was preparing for an army of babies hair!
the feltie shown here was inspired by a super cute outfit sent by my sister.... and it just HAD to have the perfect flower for her hair!
Hand Print Wreaths
nothings cuter than tiny hands! and nothings cuter to me then comparing my 3 year old and my crawlers hands to each other. so we decided that the hand print turkeys we made at thanksgiving had to of course be followed by hand print wreaths!! and it kept the 3 year old entertained with a glue stick for a good 2 hours.... he did the gluing allllll by himself. i'm so proud.
Like a Fabric "Head Board", but totally not!
i have been wanting a fabric head board for EVER. literrally ever. but i never seem to have the right space for it. this house is even more irritating because when the furniture is oriented how i feel it should be there is a window completely not centered on the wall behind the bed. and of course the window is not centered over the bed either! and of course my husband won't let me just build a ginormous headboard to cover the problem. see below, window is a problem!!
what to do right?? well i decided i need a big cornice and a giant white flowing fabric panel below it. so i got started trying to figure out whether or not i'll love or hate it. what do you guys think?
i'm liking the direction... now to find time to build the cornice!
Initial Gift Tags
now, i don't know about your 3 year olds, but mine can't completely read his name yet. if it starts with an "h" he thinks it's him. honey, it's not. so i decided to get my tired scissors out again and make some initial gift tags to put on the kiddos presents. you know to hopefully clarify which one he should be opening. cause the crawler LOVES to rip open presents!!
we also decided to wrap santa, just so they could enjoy the ripping! i didn't think about how the tags were going to spell "Sssshhhhhh" i thought they were pretty cute, and actually the hubby did too. but at first of course he thought i was being a nut. but it did work! 3 year old easily identified which present was his, and his sisters!
gave mommy warm and fuzzy feelings! :)
Fabulous Flea Market & Valentine Decorations
i decided to completely go out on a limb here and put some of my hair accessory stock up for sale at a flea market the tiny town is having this weekend. it's their first. i'm used to a much larger scale f.m. in t-town, but this has a whopping 40 booths! and side note, only 16 have sold.... but i'm staying positive and hoping for some fun!
so i've been getting the goods gathered! and the tablescape planned. and my shutterfly site revamped. and business cards printed. and hair goodie tags made. and crafts galore finished.
a preview of my madness below!
see there's a reason i haven't been typing so much!!! but i'm back on the wagon. with a way late resolution to keep up with this blog! so don't give up on my yet! i've got a bunch of healthy recipes to throw at you soon too! i'm on a weight loss mission right now!
ya'll do me a favor, check out my shutterfly site and give me some feedback, in your spare time of course!
