Surprise Mini Projects

In my Creative Kids Workshops I have been doing an extra little mini SURPRISE project each class. Which may I just say has been so fun to plan! I thought you all might like to see a pic of the last one, my Sierra graciously agreed to model it for me. We made fabric/felt 4th of July barretts. And since they are so cute I made two for each little girl in our family = 14 barretts, my fingers were so tired at the end. Now we have to do a photo shoot with all the girls wearing them....can't wait it will be so fun. By the way if you love felt and fabric, fun and funky barretts but don't want to make them check out the beyond adorable ones down at Scrapbooks ETC. made by the cutiest little chick Janeya (her mom is Kelli Collins, super cool lady)

'AMERICA' Banner

In the mood for some 4th of July decor. I made this banner to go with my USA wood blocks (there were still a couple kits left at ETC., last time I was there) Some ladies asked me if I would post pics of each letter, so here they are ladies..... enjoy. By the way I really did put the pictures in in order to spell America, but they definitely didn't show up that way here. Hope everyone is having a super creative day!

"We neeeeed a Movie night, too!"

So, here's the thing I love using actual tickets in scrapbooking. While I was kitting my first Creative Kids Workshop Izzy spotted the pink tickets I was using and got sooooooo excited. She immediately asked if she could have some, then her plans began, "We neeeeed a movie night too!" For the next hour she danced and sang as she glued tickets to computer paper making big plans on inviting all her and Max's friends over for a movie late night. It was so cute, I even set up the video camera to film her as she stood at the kitchen table singing, "I'm gluing tickets for my friends..... 'cuz it's a friends movie friends are coming with their tickets to the movie night.....'cuz it's a movie night" the whole time shaking her tiny bootie. Of course Max got in on the plans immediately, Izzy had him running around getting her supplies. Max of course was doing his own version of the 'friends movie night song' his versions of Izzy's songs are usually more like fight songs...he has to kick and jump and break dance while he does it. Oh my goodness it was to die for cute. I love love love that Max & Izzy are best buds and have enough imagination for five kids. Well, I of course promised that day we would have a movie party for the little kids (seriously how could I not and how could I not invite every kid they wanted too). It has taken me two and a half weeks but I have finally made and delivered invitations, with tickets of course, for the big movie party (they invited 16 kids ages 3-5 ...I have officially lost my mind). Max had to have blue invitations for the boys, which of course meant I had to make blue tickets.....NO pink for the boys....and just so you know he SAYS he called them and they wanted blue not pink (yeah, he never called them, but his little made up stories are so cute we just go along with them) Anyway I thought I would post some pics of the cards we made with little pockets for tickets. Izzy and Max want them to bring the tickets to get into the movie party. So cute .....I LOVE this age so sweet, innocent, full of imagination, excitement, love and they can dress themselves and go to the bathroom by themselves...Yeah, Life is good in the Motherhood.
