Testing 1, 2, 3...


So my little sister Kathryn Olivia turned 8 years old this past Sunday. I cannot believe how fast the little darling is growing up. She is a complete girlie girl and I love to spoil her with pretty things. She is still my little baby.  I am so excited about going home TODAY because it means I get to give her the birthday presents I made for her! I like to think that I'm testing my "I-make-cute-things-for-my-little-girl" skills. One day! (Sigh)

I found these cute scrapbook flowers at Michael's...

All I did was hot glue some bobby pins to the back and voila! I have some adorable hair pins for my little sis! They look so cute and vintage-y!

My next "test" was inspired from the fabric flower headbands sold at Anthro and the like. All I did was twist the fabric into a flower shape and hot glue into place! So easy!

It seriously took 2 minutes to make. I love quick cute crafts!

I loved the result so much that I made two! Katie and I will match now!

Don't tell anyone, but I've worn this headband everyday since I made it. Shhh!

I'm not sure why, but I keep waking up with new crafty ideas in the middle of the night. I can't decide if I like it or not. Is it a curse or a blessing? I have yet to determine.

Later this week I will show you guys the ruffle table runner that popped into my mind saying, "MAKE ME!" at 3 am the other night. It is another "quick cute craft."

OMG...how weird both of us posted about head bands today LOL!!!! I think that deserves a follow ;) I am so addicted to these things. I pick my outfits around my head bands all the time just so I can wear them like every day!! I haven't made my own yet but totally plan on it!! My daughter and I will soooo be matching and I love it!!!

Your bobby pins look great!!!!!!!
