Tis the season to be Jolly!!!! I took that to the next level this year and made a DIY ornament headband for my daughter.
Let me be honest... I waited till the night before her school Christmas program to go dress shopping and so my daughter and I were out shopping till 9pm and then I still got home and made her this adorable Christmas ornament headband! CRAZY only a little bit... LOVING my sweet girl is worth it.
If you own a hot glue gun then this headband is already half way done! Pick up some smaller ornaments and plug in the glue gun and start decorating the headband. I ended up making two because it was fun and I thought they were so adorable that I plan on wearing one next week before we are on Christmas break. Make it as simple or as crazy as you want it to be. Use different sizes for an added dimension!
I might have been a little sleepy but when she woke up and saw her headband her smile and excitement for her concert increased at least by 10! :)
I was so proud of her as I watched her perform her songs. Hands down her songs were the best songs! :)
You are a one of a kind girl that keeps me on my toes and brings me joy each and every day. I am one blessed mom to call you my daughter. Watching you scrunch your nose during the program reminded me of your sweet innocent giggle. I thought you had to sneeze but nope you have the same nose twitch your daddy does... you both scrunch your noses or move your lips when you concentrate....it truly is adorable! I love you with all of my heart.

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly. I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos. Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you. This was a super easy one for those little hands. I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting. The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper. EASY, but they enjoyed it! :) It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge! :) I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
MY MEMORIES SUITE Review and giveaway! (#1 rated scrapbook software) The above is one of the scrap pages I have created. Super easy and super fast. I only took a couple minutes to create a 8 page photo book. I am still going to do some more with adding more embellishments! The below is one I created all from scratch and it only took me about 5 minutes! :) SO EASY! Here is a great video explaining more about the product. There are also tutorials available on youtube.com I am not sure if you are like me but I have spent hours online trying to upload photos to the web to place them into something I was trying to create. THE BIGGEST BONUS to My Memory Suite is the fact that it is downloaded to your computer so you do not have to wait forever for a picture to upload! It made my experience much quicker then other programs I have used online. The scrapbook software was very easy to download on my computer and did not take long to learn how to create. :) One feature t
