You can also paint it if you want.  After they dry, you can even spray them with Pearl Glaze from Michaels or Acrylic if you don’t mind fumes…. I hate fumes, so I didn’t spray paint them.  I’m sure you can dip them in something exciting…

And we beamed at each other as we made one flower after another… We are using them to decorate our birdcages for the ceremony(http://laritajohn.wordpress.com/)and I plan to do that old ribbon trick where you dip plain ole ribbon in that glue and water mixture and let it air dry in the shape you like. I will share it after we are done…

Ok, so now for Pinterest and what exactly to use your flower power with…. I am now the Flower Lady…Yess. Yesss.  Plus there are lots of of flower making fancies that I’m sure you are going to love!!!!!!

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.

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.
