I picked up the last three ingredients to make a recipie my husband asked me to try.
Hopefully this weekend I will get a chance to try to make copy cat caramel delight ccokies.
This was how I did my daughter’s hair for wacky hair day.
Last night after her hair was washed I put in bandans to curl her hair, I crimped the other half before removing the curlers.
(don’t mind the photo editing, I thought I would play around with it and make it a little wacky too)
This week at school my kids are having a wacky week to celebrate the birthday of Dr. Seuss. One of the days is wacky hair or hat day, so I thought I would share the wackiest hat I ever made. It may not be the most appropriate for school but you have to admit it is pretty wacky,
I made this with a little help from my husband (he did all the cutting and hole punching) for my father-in-law. All I had to go by were very vague instructions. I am thinking of making some with soda cans for the kids next year for wacky hats for wacky week.
I know baby shower 1 of 3 may sound confusing, but I have one this month, another next month, and a third soon after that.
For the shower this month I had allready cut the burp rags and blanket from flannel I bought at Joann’s.
Today I sewed the blanket.
I started with the right sides together, and sewed most of the way around all 4 sides leaving enough room to turn it right side out. Before I turned it I trimmed the corners a bit.
After turning it I used a zig zag stitch around all 4 sides.
Of course I tested it out wrapping up one of my daughter’s dolls.
This blanket is about 41 inches square.
After many complaints about being bored on a too cold can’t go outside kinda weekend I gave my daughter the rubber band loom. after a coupl of bracelets that led to the kinds fighting because they didn’t have their own.
Apperntly every thing cool takes 2
So I bought another of the same brand of loom. Now they can each work on their own or combine them for something bigger.
I don’t remember when or where I got theese earrings.
I like the charm but don’t really care for that style earring hook. The good thing is I usually have spare hooks.
So I switched to fish-hook style earrings.
Swtiching the hooks on the earrings only took a few minutes, and now I will probably wear them more often.
