Look Mom, I can do my own hair!

So my daughter was down with a virus this week and she has to be 24 hours without a fever to return to preschool or day care which was Thursday. I work from home and she came down to greet me with her hair in disarray. I asked her if she wanted me to put a "pony" (pointail holder) in it and then I said, "or do you want to do it?" I wish I could have captured he face. She thought for a moment, and I could see the wheels turning thinking I never thought about putting things in my own hair, and she finally responded with YES! She immediately marched upstairs to remove the many "pretties" (ponytail holders & barettes) from her dolls hair - which by the way are really meant for my daughter.
A bit later she comes back down to see me and is extremely proud. I couldn't resis the Kodak/scrapable picture moment. She has a small pony tail in the front on each side of her head, there are several barettes and finally one pony tail in the back with two pony tail holders in the back.

True strength is delicate.

So i'm feeling a bit overwhelmed with life lately, as we all do from time to time, and found inspiration from a recent card I made for someone else. Isn't it funny how you can intend for a message to be forothers when in fact you are the one that really needs to hear it. I love how God works that way. Enjoy!

Crafting vs. Studying

At first thought this may be a simple choice, right? Well this past week (who am I kidding it's the past two weeks) I have chosen crafting. Now not to overwhelm you with all that I have accomplished I have chosen a gift bag and card to share with you. Keep in mind this was created two hours before the pool/birthday party with my 4 year old chomping at the bit to dispatch-us-forth-with to the pool immediately. It's always gratifiying to take something as simple as a plain gift bag and dress it up!
I use Dora paper and stickers (that i just had to have when my daughter was obsessed with Dora), the negative of a Making Memories Chipboard number, We R Memory Keeprs washer, Ribbon - Joanns, Happy Birthday stamp - Hero Arts (mayber?), Celebrate stamp - Inkadinkadoo.
As a foot note I premade a page ready for a first day of preschool picture. Hopefully I'll have the photo printed before she starts kindergarten! :)
