Felt Flower Headband Tutorial sq-12

Felt Flower Headbands – Made by the Kidlets!

Ignore her not-enthused expression… she was actually really excited about this headband. We’ve been growing out Lila’s bangs for the past two months, and it has been endless bobby pins, shaggy dog looks, and hair accessories.

GreenWorks Summer-4-2

Strawberries & Cream Popsicles, Sundaes and Making a Mess

I love the freedom of summer.  I purposely left our lives as unscheduled as possible this summer so that the girls and I could get into hijinx. We wouldn’t be limited by start times and end times – we could take on a project and see it through the day.  We were sent a package…
