Oopsie…

I know it’s a little past Valentine’s day (ok, a lot past)  but I had a lot going on and didn’t get a chance until now to show off all the Valentine’s craftiness that went on over in our house.

The Littlest Bit (3) and I were invited to a Valentine’s Party/ Playdate where we were tasked with bringing a snack to share so we decided to make strawberry flavored cake pops.  Some with chocolate candy coating and some with white.

Finished product:

I think they turned out pretty cute!  And they were super yummy also 😀

We didn’t really have a ton of time in the morning on Valentine’s Day for a big breakfast (hahaha, that is SO an understatement as we NEVER have a “ton” of time in the mornings!!).  So, breakfast was toaster strudels (a favorite treat among my girls) and we drew festive hearts to add a little love.

I couldn’t let my little bits go to school in just plain red shirts, so I quickly (I’m a little ashamed to admit it was the day before!) sewed a zebra heart onto LB2’s shirt and we

I took a little more time to do LB3’s shirt (although, still the day before Valentine’s Day) and I think it turned out super cute as well!

She LOVED her crazy elephant shirt with the zebra stripes!  LOL

She couldn’t keep still, even for a photo op

Vocabulary Parade…

Little Bit2 gets the BEST assignments at school these days!  What’s better than a book report that you can scalp or make your own board game?  Well, that would be dressing up as a vocabulary word for a super fun Vocabulary Parade!!

That’s right.  The students get to pick a word from their vocabulary list and then make a costume that represents that word.  I think that was my favorite part — sitting with her and brainstorming ideas for her word :D.  It was too much fun!

The word chosen: VAIN

“You’re so vain! I bet you think this song is about you…”

And it is pretty funny that when I started singing this my LB2 said her teacher “sang that SAME song to me, Mom!”

Okay, so she decided the best way to show her Vain-ness ;), would be to dress in her most fabulous dress (with her high heels, of course), fix her hair and wear a most luxurious tiara headband, and pin a bunch of awards all over herself that show how great she is.  We don’t really have a bunch of awards but I did have some blank awards that are some DIY reward ribbons.  So, LB2 sat on down and made herself some ribbons.

The big day arrived so we got her all done up and here she is being vain

I also found the PERFECT handheld mirror at the Dollar Tree!  Like I said, Perfect 😉

Very fun and she was so excited to show her classmates and her teacher her costume.

And, guess what!!!

She totally won a prize for Most Creative costume!!  Woot Woot!  And THAT is MY girl 🙂

What a fantastic job she did :D!

I am such a super proud Mama right about now.

Pillowcase Dress Drive…

As you may know, I LOVE reading other blogs! I am actually a blog follower of several (probably like 20!! — is that a lot??) other blogs via my email.  I just love getting a new post in my inbox!  It’s so much fun to see what other bloggers are up to :).

So about a week or so ago, I got this post

http://www.oneartsymama.com/2013/02/pillowcase-dress-drive.html

in my inbox from one of my favorite bloggers.

Basically, this young lady is looking for people to make and donate a pillowcase dress (or two) so she can take them on her missions trip to Uganda and help clothe these poverty-stricken young girls there for Project Yesu.  She will also be taking other supplies (food, medicine and educational materials)that are desperately needed to help.

What a great thing to do!

I can TOTALLY make a few pillowcase dresses and send them her way!

If you sew (or don’t), they are taking any and all size dresses made from any fabric and any colors to take with them.  All you have to do is make ’em and send ’em to:

Project Yesu

The deadline for getting them there is May 31, so let’s get started! 🙂
I’m kind of excited!  I haven’t been sewing very much at all lately, and I think this will give me my sewing mojo back so I can tackle the ever growing pile of “stuff I need to fix/ make” :D.
