There are a million things that I should have done around the house today, but instead I needed something theraputic for my soul. So after I folded laundry and Sadie went down for a nap I made some pretties that may or may not end up in a care package for a certain flower-accessory loving sister in Ketchikan.
I love these flower bobby pins. It is a super easy and fun project that I got from here. It satisfied my craft bug as well as my pyro tendencies. Win WIN! I cut up a slinky faux-silk diaper cover (aka polyester) that someone had given Sadie, and used pigment dye to darken the edges of the petals (although, to be honest, I think a black Sharpie would have worked just as well.) Some plastic pearl beads complete the look. Quick and easy-peasy.
Then I finished up this crocheted flower scarf, which has Mamastasia written all over it:
Finally, I gave Sadie a bath, which made her happy for a little while, then we had a silly photo shoot which made us both feel a little better. Notice the teething grimace :(
