Blue Hairbows

I picked out what my girls were going to wear to church and then realized I needed bows to match, so I found a tutorial on how to make precious bows. I was SO excited about this because the tutorials were printable - which is good for me because my computer is not in my craftroom (and I don't have a laptop), so I'm always looking at the first couple steps, then going to the craft room, then coming back to the computer for the next couple steps. THANK YOU Ten Cow Chick for making them printable.
I varied a little by adding another layer of ribbon in each bow, but I did all the steps in the tutorial.

MZ's bow was the exact measurements TCC used

N's bow was an inch smaller

I'm finally back into the swing of things.
This little princess joined our eternal family almost 7 weeks ago and i'm slightly obsessed with her.

During naps yesterday, I realized that I needed something for ME - I had missed crafting like crazy. So I sat at the computer deciding what joyous craft I would tackle.

I found THIS link over at Dragonfly Designs and decided to try it.

I got my supplies - all things i had at the house

my flowers looked homely

So i pulled out the big guns!!!

I wonder if I've ever made a craft without sparkles

Here's the pillow on the porch

I had to take an overall picture because i was so proud of my craft and my hard yard work today.
