bits from the past couple o' days...

I just love this guy and hate to think of him getting smashed just to get to the treats inside...is it bad if I let them grab handfuls out of his back so I can use him as a decoration in the girls room?
oh and miss R put the blinders on his eyes...she's so cute!
I just love my chandelier...don't you? It's the one thing I had to bring from our first house...very understated.
N, I tried really hard to make them look like yours but yours are SO much nicer :)

my version of the Martha Stewart pom pom...had I known it was going to take as long as it did I would have come up with another idea...pretty though!

a scavenger hunt inside...NOT what I had in mind...arghhhh.

this is what I did today...cake not in the pic and not finished yet.

the fairy herself.

Z is an amazing architect for fairy houses.

does she look like a roller derby girl or what? she's definitely a p.u.n.k but in a really good R way.
So, for the past few days I've been without my creative outlet and I'm starting to go crAZy!! I can't wait for Sunday so I can dig everything back out. I'm showcasing this weekend on etsy so go to the children's section and you'll see one of my designs :)
I'll take as many pictures as I can tomorrow and one of the cake when it's finished. I'm decorating it with fresh pansies so I'm waiting for those touches to be added in the morning. The weather couldn't be any worse for our little shin dig so we're going to have to make the best of it!
  • Finished the pom poms...my fingers are killing me though I feel proud of myself for doing them without the kit...I hand cut, folded, wired, separated and hung each little ditty!
  • Made the caramel apples which in the past have been a nightmare to make...today, it was a breeze!
  • Z aced both her vocabulary test and her science test at school!
  • Date night tomorrow and I can't wait!
  • Took the girls to the pool this afternoon for a quick swim.
  • S is already asleep!!!

....and on that note, goodnight!


note: I can't seem to do anything about the spacing on this post...it's driving me crazy too!!!
