Baby Shower Ideas

Baby showers are the ideal time to get creative.  My daughter is having a baby very soon and I decided to make a onesie with matching headband.  The iron on transfer was easy to apply and I topped it off with a lady bug inspired hair clip that clips on easily to any headband.  I'm also attaching a picture of the beautiful cupcakes made by her very special caterer and good friend and the darling sucker bouquet that was given as a shower game prize.

Vintage Barbie is Back

Vintage Barbie is back.  I spotted this at the Toy Store and it brought tears to my eyes.  What memories.  I had a Barbie case very similar to this one in another color.  I stood there remembering way back to when I loved playing with Barbies.  I won’t say what year it was.  My first/vintage Barbie with the blonde pony tail, doll case and clothes were accidentally thrown away when we moved years ago. I plan to add Barbies to my toyroom for my little ones who come to visit so they can experience the Barbie fun.

Foamie Hair Clips How To

Little girls headbands with clip-on bows, flowers and felt creations are so popular right now.  I put together several hair clips for the little girls in our family.  Here is an easy How To for making them.
Please contact me to order clips and headbands.

Step 1 - Purchase Tub of Foamies at your local craft store.  Also purchase some Tacky Glue. 

Step 2 - Choose desired flower shapes for each clip.  Purchase hair clips at your local craft store or beauty supply.

Step 3 - Glue different size flowers together with tacky glue and top with a decorative button.  Let the glue dry and then glue the clip to the flower.  Place some wax paper inside the clip so you don't glue the clip together. 

I also made some hair clips using silk daisies from my local craft store.  I cut the stem/wire off and glued the hairclip to the back of the flower.  These can  be worn as a hair clip or clipped on to a headband.

Easter Mantle 2012

As soon as I took down the Valentine Mantle I decided to put out my Easter decorations.  It's a bit full, but I like it.  Kinda yummy and whimsical at the same time.  These decorating treasures were gathered over the years from various craft stores and boutiques.  Happy Spring everyone....
