I just love looking at all the pretty flower bows out there to decorate our little girls. The only problem is when I go to put them in my little ones hair, they last maybe a minute. I don’t know why this is, but I had to find a solution. I started putting bobby pins in big sis’s hair to hold it out of her face and I discovered she would keep them in for at least half a day. Why she hates clips and will tolerate bobby pins is beyond me, but I knew I had to find a way to pretty up the bobby pins.
I’m sure this is not a new breakthrough, but it’s a first for us in the hair accessory area. At first I started to hot glue silk flowers onto the ends of bobby pins.
Then I began to experiment with buttons.
This was the best picture I could get of the flower in her head before it came adamantly off.
Here I used a mixture of embossed paper flowers and buttons. Cute huh?
Here is a close up of more buttons and beads.
For a quick storage solution, I pinned a piece of velvet ribbon on the bathroom wall with the decorated bobby pins on them.
Lastly, I wanted to post a little something I made for my big sis’s soon-to-be born baby. My sister has worked so hard for so long to become a Nurse Practitioner. She passed all of her tests, and now it is final. I’m so proud of her! She has been such and inspiration to me of living life to it’s fullest. And I can’t wait for the new addition to our family.
That is her on the left, with my brother and hubby(he’s cute when he is sweaty and tired).
Love ya Sis!
For those waiting to see my craft room reveal, it’s almost there! I just have to beg my husband to help me with some stuff tonight.
