DIY Fireworks Headband

Did your mom ever put embarrassingly big bows on you when you were a kid?  Mine did, and I used to die when I saw the pictures and now I totally get it.  Maybe the bows I put on my kids aren't 80's style big, but putting cute things in their hair is sooo fun! I saw this cute tutorial for making felt flower headbands by Something Turquoise (see tutorial HERE) and decided I wanted to make something like that for my girls for the 4th of July.  It's really easy and takes only a few minutes to make!

You'll need:

Red, White, and Blue Felt
Glue Gun
Ribbon or Elastic

Start off with cutting out a long rectangle in each color.  Mine is 2 1/2" x 5"

Feathers and Teepee Birthday Party

My baby turned three this week!  I love to put together birthday parties for her.  This year I decided to do a "tribal" theme because I wanted to make her a teepee for her birthday!  Ok, so I had planned to make it for Christmas and that didn't happen, but I did get it out and finish it which makes me pretty proud of myself.  I started searching Pinterest for ideas and then went to my Hobby Lobby for party supplies.

I found these brightly colored feathers at Hobby Lobby and used thread to wrap them on toothpicks to stick in the cupcakes.

Watercolor Roses Card

So, I have this dream of being a watercolor artist.  It's going to take A LOT of practice but I really want to work on it.  I just want to skip the part where I'm not good and get to the part where I know what I'm doing.  So I've been practicing painting roses.  It's probably the most generic flower but it's still my favorite.  I don't know what it is about them but they are really hard for me to draw or paint.  I did finally get the hang of it with the watercolor.
