Neffy’s Baby Shower!

Neffy's Baby Shower!.

Neffy’s Baby Shower!

I couldn’t wait to make something for this shower!    I decided on diaper bouquets and I painted an umbrella much to my hubby’s dismay.

Just a cute diaper.


You know I can’t resist my aluminum foil. Sorry, I went to the craft store and they wanted $5.74 for one styrofoam ball! I had to keep thinking…keep thinking… And the pack of skewers were $4.00. Keep thinking. Luckily I had the floral picks already, and they were long enough. I got two sizes.

  The umbrella is well…very artsy.  We are trying to figure out how Neffy is going to get it home.  We also decided it would make a great guest book.  I just give them the sharpie and they signed the umbrella.

Oh My Air Freshner Doll Pictutorial- Um…Moderately Easy

I can never get enough of these dolls. They look great everywhere and make nice gifts. I’m willing to make a kit for $10.00 plus shipping for anyone that wants one. The kit includes a pre-made skirt, hat, arm, face, and some leftover fabric.  You just need  glue gun, and a Renuzit Air Freshner in the fragrance of your choice. If you want to go it all on your own, I just ask that you please send me a picture or comment so I can enjoy your creativity.

A fresh face is always so nice to start with.

It would help if I combed my hair first before I put on a hat.

Ribbon Cord Headband- Easy

Image

This was nice for the girls to do, and I get to wear one of them.  I was hoping I had more things to braid in, but the basic braided thing works and I like the versatility of colors that can be used. Sky is the limit with these headbands.  I went to visit Joann’s Fabric store and was so surprised to see all of the jewelry making supplies, and the new sewing machines.  Raine said:  Ooh Mommy, I love this store.  What’s so funny is that she has been in there or others with me many times, but this time she saw it differently. She was really wide eyed, touching the fabrics,  going from aisle to aisle and stopping at her favorite spots.  I was excited for her.   I hope she was inspired.  My favorite part is always the candy at the register.

The Impossible Woman

 

The Impossible Woman  

She only knows from within herself…

The person she used to be….

The person she destined to be…

Who’s that Lady?  

A child that longed to be a woman…

The woman that yearns to be a child…

Isn’t that wild?

But no one really gets to see all of this soul…

Shining are her eyes like sparks of gold…

We see pieces of her and we think we know…

But alas, it is only the picture that she dares to paint for you… 

Behind the smile… it’s not always what you think

But take the smile because it could be your missing link….

To your own destiny.

Behind her tears of the past brings incredible strength

For the suffering and the pain that she still has yet to know…

And she is never the same because she has never known all of herself

At the same time.

Because she is the Impossible woman….
