feeling crafty.

**Elise and I went to this Bi jou market on Saturday and got completely inspired to make our own hair things (clips, bobby pins and headbands). Nate was a little offended that I let him/made him take a nap on Saturday so that I could be crafty with Elise. We went a little crazy with lots of ribbon, lots of flowers, lots of hot glue.... but nothing was expensive and we've still got lots of supplies left.

**The lighting in my room is awful right now so these pictures don't rock, but here are a few of them that I made :)

For a cute baby that may be in the family soon :)

I wrapped the headband with brown ribbon and put the flowers on.

A white stretchy (party) headband w/ pink flowers

this may be a little big for my head, but i think it'll be cute.

Nate suggested I wear it with a sun dress, though that may have to wait.

**So, there you go... I didn't take pictures of all the headbands I made for the Zoe. They may be too big for her new born head (I have no idea how big baby heads are) but hopefully they'll fit her sometime as a young child.

**I wore my brown headband with 3 flowers to church on Sunday and to my enrichment commitee meeting and one of the ideas for enrichment was making flower hair clips, and I mentioned how Elise and I spent hours doing that on Saturday, so they admired my headband and made me incharge of enrichment in 2 weeks. Though I don't love taking charge, it should be a really fun activity. I get to go out and buy all the supplies and decide exactly what we're going to make. Fun!

The headwear is definitely adorable. I imagine Zoe is going to have the best hairwear in the world between you and Jana.

I love how diplomatic Nate was letting you in would be cute with a sundress.

I am so excited for you to be in charge of the enrichment activity. Have fun with that.

So glad you have such fun with Elise.
