The letter R

I love tutorials. I am always looking for something new to make. One of my favorite blogs has a bandana dress tutorial and I just knew I had to make one for Reagan. It only took around 30 minutes to whip it up. It would have been so much quicker if I didn't make her try it on every 5 minutes to make sure it was looking ok.

I did the back a little different than Julie did hers. I figured if I left ribbon hanging off the back she would be pulling at them so instead I just have the shoulder straps as one long ribbon and strung it through the back loop. Does that make sense? I also added a letter R to make it personalized. I love it, she loves it, we all win. 

If you haven't already checked out Julie's blog, do it now. She is awesome.

April Showers brought May Flowers

My flowers are pretty, for now anyway. They don't last long. This tulip is already done and gone. It was pretty while it lasted.
These 2 flowers I'm not sure what they are but we have yellow ones and some white and purple ones. I love how they open up. 

We have a few of these bushes in the yard but only one purple one. The rest are white. 
The dandelions are the kids favorites. Even though these aren't the prettiest flowers they are by far the most fun to play with. 
I don't know what these are either but love the red color.
I think these are begonias but not positive. 

I am taking pictures today and will be starting to put stuff up in the shop. I will put on a link here when I figure out how to do it.

Busy Girls

It has been crazy here this week. I have been super busy getting ready for the craft fair. I decided to switch venues and I will be at the Grace Brethren Church here in West Kittanning instead of at the Silver Canoe Campground. It is right up the street from my house so that will be nice. 

Today i took some pictures of Reagan in the headbands I made. I had to bribe her with candy. She does not like to stay still for the camera. Isn't she cute? :) 

In this one she was gritting her teeth saying "cheese". She was getting mad at me by this point so i didn't get a lot of shots but got what I needed. Well it's time to get back to work. I will try to post tomorrow night.

First Timer

Nobody tells you how hard it is to start a blog. Really it's super easy to sign up and create one but the first post, wow. I have no idea what to say. 

I love people who blog daily. I eat that up. If I could I would sit at the computer all day and just browse. 

I can't do that though because my kids want and need to play with their mom. This week though has been a rough  week. They have both been sick. It breaks my heart when my 2 (almost 3) year old cries out "help me". What do you do for that besides just hold hold her and lay with her until she falls asleep. Lucas is going back to school tomorrow after being home since the school called us on Monday to come get him. He is finally feeling better. Hopefully Reagan will start to feel well too. 

I don't have any pictures from this week so here is Reagan looking for her eggs on Easter. 

 I've been busy crafting getting ready for my first craft fair. So on the 16th and 17th I will be at Silver Canoe Campground in Rural Valley, PA. It's their first year doing a fair so I thought it would be a perfect place to start. I just hope people show up. 

Is it normal for it to take hours to write a post? Please let me know it's not just me. I was planning on posting once a day but if it takes this long I'm gonna have to rethink that. :)
