I want candy... Cotton Candy (craft/card)

 I am a huge fan of cotton candy.  I know I'm an adult but I get excited just like a lil kid in a candy store when I know we are going to a fair because there will be cotton candy there.  I always have to talk my hubby into letting me get some.  :)  

Well we did not actually have real cotton candy so I told my daughter we could make "pretend cotton candy."  She was confused but then realized we could make a craft and had a fun time creating this project.

The project was very simple but yet fun.  All you need is toilet paper tube, cotton balls, glue, h20 food coloring mixture in a spray bottle.   

Stretching and gluing on the cotton balls... it looks so much like cotton candy.  Had to reinforce that we could not eat this because we were just pretending.  

There her tongue is out again.  Here we are adding our color to the cotton to make it look like tasty cotton candy.  

Yummy... really wish I had the real stuff!  

 We made 2 cards to give out.  I forgot to take a picture after we wrote on them.  On one of them we wrote:  "Happy Birthday Daddy, hope you have the sweetest day ever."  The 2nd card we gave to our pastor's wife and that said "You are sweeter then Cotton Candy."  

The craft did not take very long but still worked on some fine motor with using glue, stretching the cotton balls out, and using the spray bottle.  :)  

Maybe my hubby could buy me this Nostalgia electric Cotton Candy Maker off of Amazon!  :) 
Nostalgia Electrics PCM-805 Hard Candy/Sugar Free Cotton Candy Maker
Cotton Candy Express - Cotton Candy Sugar - 5 Floss Sugar Flavor Pack - 12 Oz. Containers


Thanks! I am not sure if she had more fun creating and making it or handing the card to her dad and "nana" at our church. It makes me excited that she loves to be a giver! :)

Unquestionably imagine that that you said. Your favorite justification appeared to be on the internet the easiest thing to understand of.
I say to you, I definitely get annoyed whilst other
people consider concerns that they just do not recognise about.
You controlled to hit the nail upon the highest as neatly
as defined out the entire thing with no need
side-effects , other folks could take a signal.
Will likely be again to get more. Thank you

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
