Spring Felt Topiary

Photobucket

Where we live in California, it feels like we have 2 seasons. Summer and then something that feels like fall/spring time. I really can't complain. The weather is awesome here to say the least.

I was beginning to decorate for the spring and felt the need to craft!

This is an easy, yet time consuming project. Here is how you do it:

Photobucket

1. I bought a yard of felt and traced circles using an IKEA kid's cup.

2. Cut the circles out. When cutting, I cut before my line so you won't see the pen lines on the edges.

3. I used a 4 inch foam ball for the large one and 3 inch foam ball for the small one.

4. Fold the circle in half.

Photobucket

5. Then fold in half again.

6. Use a pin to connect the pointy part into the foam ball.

7. I alternated the direction of each one. Open side on one and then I flipped it for the next one.

8. I went down the center all the way around the foam ball. Then I started a second line underneath it.

9. I finished one half of it and then did the other half.

And that's, that!

Pot of Gold Pancakes

St. Patricks day is becoming big around our house. Probably because we have a leprechaun who visits our house each year bringing gold.

This year, the kids go really into the holiday making leprechaun houses and Mia decorated each door with shamrocks and leprechauns.

Ben made the kids these super cute pancakes on St. Patrick's Day!

This holiday can only get bigger and bigger around here!

Ty and Paul-Sneak Peak

I had my first, 'Two Brothers from another mother" session today. It had been raining all week and we were so lucky that our session did not get rained out!

I've decided that I've got to learn some funny jokes that will make my clients laugh. Today it was a movie quoting session and so I'll entertain you with some as you scroll down and check out Ty and Paul.

"What is this? A center for ants? How can we be expected to teach children to learn how to read... if they can't even fit inside the building? The building has to be at least... three times bigger than this!"
