One Year of Axel

One year and there are still too many words, thoughts, feelings to even begin.

Spring around here.

Happy second day of spring!  With the weather warming up a tiny bit and the sun shining, even Axel is feeling the need to be outside after being cooped up all winter.  It is almost as if he has never experienced the great big world before and it is fascinating to see Spring through the eyes of an {almost} one year old.  

We are almost recovered from the worst... ear infections.  I would rather clean the aftermath of the flu than deal with the pain and helplessness of earaches I've decided.  But my prayers were answered and the two of us finally got some sleep.   

Half days at school means we need something to do up in here.  Stitching cards and SHHH mom I'm concentrating.  For two hours.  Its the little things I tell ya.  
I have a hot date with my boyfriend tonight, Need For Speed.  He's lucky I like fast cars.  But I'm feeling lucky too.  So there might be FroYo involved.   

Spring is off to a fabulous start.

11 months of Axel

Those chubby fingers.  Those mile long lashes.  That ticklish baby belly.  His barely there hair.  

Eleven Months.  Seriously.  I can't take that it is to this point already.  I'm not ready for 1.

Adventure Valentines

I know its kind of last minute but in case you didn't know thats how I roll.  I created some adventure themed Valentines for Greenies.  You can head over to the Greenies facebook page for a link to a PDF or you can save the images from there and share them with the adventure-ers in your life.  I hope you all have an AMAZING Valentine's Day weekend

Love Struck >> Arrow Bobby Pins Tutorial

Valentine's Day is tomorrow and we are all set.  Ivy's classroom Valentines are made, her box is ready to go and her hairstyle all planned out.   We looked up some Valentine's inspired hair tutorials on youtube and fell in love with heart braids.  It is cute to see Ivy {finally} get excited about doing her hair.  She even practices making her own hair tutorial videos in the mirror.   To add our own touch to her heart braids we made some arrow bobby pins to make the braids a Cupid's heart. 

To make your own Love Struck bobby pins you need just some tiny scraps of material >> ours are leather and felt <<  bobby pins and a hot glue gun.   To make two bobby pins you will need 3 small squares of material.  
Take the first square and cut it in half diagonally.  This gives you the two arrowheads.   With the second square, first cut a triangle notch out of the top.  Then cut the bottom corners off at an angle to make a point.  Carefully snip the sides of your square to give it a feather look.  Repeat with the third square.  These are your arrow tails.  All that is left is to hot glue the arrowheads and tails to the top of your bobby pins.
