Mr. Snowman Today

Here is another picture of our snowman! This is this morning after getting dumped on all night. Of course, the snow didn't stop until about 4pm today so it has even more on it now!

Tadd measured this evening and we have between 15-16 inches! Unheard of in these parts! Tadd is right now getting dressed to go snowboard the road by our house! There is definitely enough snow and no cars! I best go watch this! Have a good night!

Christmas Gift

Well, since we are STILL getting lots of snow, I have been very productive! This bag is for my cousin. We have a theme each year and our gifts follow that. This year's theme is sports. This bag is going to be a "Mom's Survival Bag" for sporting events. I have a little first aid kit, water bottle, hand sanitizer, chapstick, hand warmers, and toe warmers to put inside! This bag was surprisingly easy to make! And if you know me and my track record with sewing projects...that is saying something! I got the pattern for this in Karlee's etsy shop! Very easy instructions!
And a few pictures from our snow! Tadd and Isaac made this guy on Thursday!

And here he is on Saturday...we're not exactly sure how his head has not fallen off!

I know I haven't updated in a while...'tis the season! For those of you bugging me about updating : ) here are some pictures of our winter weather! Looks like more is on the way and Tadd is home from school again tomorrow and probably Isaac too! Sounds like a baking day to me!

Tutorial for A Walk Down Memory Lane

Hello ladies! Today's class makes a great gift for the little girls on your lists! And it is SUPER easy! In fact as I was starting to write it up...I realized there isn't much to it so there is just one picture at the end!

Hair Clips
E6000 adhesive or Hot glue gun

1) Sand the end of you clip a little...this helps the adhesive grip.

2) Adhere the gems or pearls down the center of the butterfly (I did 3) or to the center of the flower. I tried a lot of different adhesives for this and found the adhesive already on the Kaiser gems worked the best! My 2 year old has worn hers 4-5 times and none have fallen off!
3) Glue the butterfly or flower to the end of the clip. The E6000 glue is strong! Your felt won't fall off! It does take 24 hours to dry. I have used the hot glue gun before but have had to restick later!

This picture isn't great...I'll try to get another one when the sun comes up!

Here's my daughter wearing one for her 2nd b-day which was a butterfly party!
That's it! Easy as can be!
