This week I saw a great tutorial for Confetti Hair Bows on Pinterest, that almost takes nothing of your time to make. Really, you can do this in only five minutes! And because I'm the lucky mother of two girls, it was just a great little project for me, the daughters mom!
My youngest daughter wanted what she calls unicorn colors.
The oldest, although I would swear she would feel too old for bows like this, wanted the above colors.
I adapted the bows a little bit to my own taste. Mine are a little bit smaller than the originals and instead of hair clips I used elastic hair bands. To keep it all together I used colored pipe cleaners.
You can find the whole tutorial here.
~ I love Pinterest and would like to make a recipe of my boards every
week. Since I have lots of recipes pinned (that, until now, I just
and only that), I hope this will be a way to reduce the amount of pins
on my boards ~
September is my most favorite month of the year. Normally, I would say. In the part of the world where I live (The Netherlands, that is) fall is in the air, but most days are sunny and the light is beautiful. Not weather that makes me want to heat up the house, close the curtains in the evening and light the candles. This year though it's raining from the first day of the month up until now and more rain is in the forecast. So the Pumpkin Spice Smoothie I last week announced to make fits totally in.
And it became my all time favorite smoothie, I can tell you! If you like pumpkin spice, you really have to try this one! www.betweennapsontheporch.net ~*~
Now that raspberries are still available in stores, I want to make this delicious looking Raspberr…
My husband has cleaned up his shed with tools and machines and found two boxes of mine. They were filled with craft supplies and unfinished projects. Most of it was useless, broken or incomplete, but one of the things in the boxes was an unfinished cross stitch netting to make a pillow with. It had a picture of two cats on a roof, looking at the moon, on it. I didn't even knew I still had that netting but when I saw it, I did remember when and why I bought it.
Some years ago I had two cats, one totally black, the other one totally white, exactly as on the netting. I still have the white one, Ronnie, who is fifteen years old now. The black one, Sjakie, died more than six years ago.
I don't like cross stitch pillows at all, but bought it just because of the cats. And when I saw it again, I just wanted to finish the cross stitching. But..., what can I do with it, except for making a pillow? Suggestions, anyone?
