Catching Up

I feel like the past week was such a busy week. . . but as I am catching up with blogging, I don't know which part was busy. . .

1. Recovery with my Dental "work".


Honestly I did GREAT. I don't mind bragging! The Dr. was amazed at how well I did too. I didn't have to take any pain killers, besides a few ibprofen before bed each night. I had no swelling, or bruising. The only hard part was how sore my jaw was. I guess really it was to be expected, after having my mouth open (and yanked on) for a total 5 and a half hours. Makes my jaw sore to think about it. So glad it's over.

2. Craft Night.

Thanks girls, for coming over and having a craft night. It was fun to get to know all of you! Here are the websites, I use. . . since I didn't write them down for everyone.

for ribbon: ribbonandbowsohmy.com
stretchy lace: laceheaven.com

I know I said I would do some tutorials, but I found some GREAT ones online. Saves me some work. Then if you have any questions I am more than willing to answer them! (and make them for you Marci!)

For bows this lady has an awesome website. She does her bows a little different than I do, but they are really cute. PLUS she uses the same websites to purchase her ribbon as I do, so she MUST be GREAT! Scroll down to her very first post for basic bow instructions.

For tutus this lady
, drew some pictures on how to fasten the tulle to ribbon. Or you can use elastic. . . but from her you will get the basic concept. SUPER EASY and SUPER CUTE!

I haven't made these, just found this site for tutu wands. They look cute and easy!

The fairy wings are really quite easy too. This website explains the steps, and has a video. You can find HUNDREDS of pictures online of different styles of wings. So watch the video for the basic idea, and shape them how you want. That easy.

Have fun crafting!!



3. Baby shower cake.


It wasn't my best work. I will say it was cuter in person. . . But I will post a picture, just so I can think I was a little busy last week!



4. Playing with the Rugrats.


Oh how they bring a smile to my face!


Now I am off to catch up reading about your week!
