Dr. Seuss Week

4 Mar

It’s been Dr. Seuss week at school and today they were supposed to dress up as their favorite character. Emma immediately screamed HORTON HEARS A WHO!!

We went to walmart and raided the craft section. We got shiny paper, tulle, pom poms, pipe cleaners, glitter glue, quick dry glue, and a headband! I already had packing tape, scissors, a toilet paper role, elastic and a sock on hand.

We cut out ears and taped them to the headband, then used pipe cleaners for the hair. I just twisted them together around the headband to stay.

We used tulle, a toilet paper roll, tape, and elastic to make the nose. Paper and elastic for the mask with some pipe cleaner eyebrows!

And a sock with a cut up end for the tail! The flower was pom poms glued together and glued to pipe cleaners that I made into a bracelet for her so she didn’t have something to carry around all day at school. There was a little silver glitter speck on the flower for whoville.

Needless to say she was so excited to go to school today!

Crafts: A Work-Filled Week

25 Aug

So I haven’t been around much on my blog lately and I apologize!! Between BNRing and filling orders I have been super busy 😀 Which I guess is a good thing right? So here’s a preview of all the things I’ve been working on the past few days!

I couldn’t pass up this robot material when I saw it!! It was the most adorable thing in the world!

This was a custom order! I love Dr. Seuss and she picked the best one 😉 I have one more burp cloth and a receiving blanket to make out of this 😀

I got an order for my monkey frame in yellow so it would be more like Curious George and I LOVE IT!

Apparently the monkey frames are popular 😉

Super excited about this one – I made this for a family member who is due with a little baby girl 😀

And finally!! I own my own business cards!! It’s about time right? I won’t go into how long they took me to make.. but sheesh!

It’s been busy around here! I still have a few orders to finish before I start the new things I bought but I’ll go ahead and show you a preview:

 

A burp cloth to be!

And welcome to the new additions to frames 😀 I couldn’t pass up these adorable little guys!! I have a feeling they are going to be super popular!! Let’s hope I’m right!

I also got the most adorable stamp in the world but I’ll save that for when it’s finished! It’s too cute to spoil! 😀

We are also still doing a giveaway from DDsDarlings Feature Friday so you still have a chance to win some awesome custom-made bows for that little girl you love ❤ I’m going to leave it open until August 31st! So hurry up and put your name in 😀

 


So that’s everything that’s going on right now! I’ll update with more pictures as I get the frames going and hopefully some new postings for etsy! Stay tuned – because this time I’m sticking around 😉

 

Thanks for stopping by!

Love Always,

Leap Frog – ABC Animal Orchestra

20 Nov

I signed up for this free book giveaway at www.freebies4mom.com and they sent me this book in the mail. It’s Leap Frog’s Tag Junior ABC Animal Orchestra and it’s a book to teach your child ABC’s. In this collection they have other things like Numbers, Opposites, and so on.

E already loves this book and I do too! This one and Dr. Seuss have seem to be her favorites. This book is educational and the type of book that’s going to stick around for a while.

This Tag™ Junior board book springs to life when you touch the Tag Junior book pal to any part of any page. More than 24 playful activities and 150 audio responses encourage little ones to explore while helping build confidence with books. Parents can connect to the online LeapFrog® Learning Path to see their child’s progress and get printable activities to expand the learning!

Introduces:
– Alphabet
– Music

As you all probably know by now E is only 16 months and I would have bought this book for her months ago if I knew it existed. My second favorite thing about this book is you can buy Tag Junior Book Pal that reads to the kids. I am super excited about getting this when I think she’s a little older and understands how to use it. When I got this free copy a $5 dollar off coupon came with it that doesn’t expire until March 2011 so that is PRETTY SWEET!

There is a whole series of books that go with this tag reader and I plan on purchasing all of them. If you have a one year old I would consider getting these right away and buying the book pal when they are two. These are great learning books whether you have the book pal right away or not.

I give these books and book pal 5 stars! This totally rocks!!!!!!

Hope you enjoy!

Love Always,

J
