Alli shares the cutest baby hat with ear flaps. I'd want to do this in so many fun and fanciful colors!
I'd like to crochet this sweet little bear hat- I think I'd leave off the face and just make the basic hat with the fuzzy little ears... sweet!
I'm still loving these crazy adorable elf hats.
Now that the weather is finally cooling down a bit I'm in the mood to sit and watch old movies and so I'm looking for projects I can do while I watch. I'm liking the old reruns on netflix too- currently I've been watching the Dick Van Dyke show. Silly fun.

I'm getting a huge stash of headbands, flowers and bows and thought I'd better come up with a way to simplify. I decided to make some interchangeable headbands. I went to dollar tree and bought a variety of headbands- thin, thick, different colors, etc.
Then I went home and cut a tiny piece of bias tape- I simply folded the bias tape ends under and sewed it onto the side of the thick headbands- making a loop- like this.

I'm not the first to do this- not by a long shot. However, I was so excited about how it turned out that I wanted to share it. I've been gathering up some accessories to use in my Not-really-photo-shoot-shoots-because-I'm-not-good-enough-yet picture taking sessions and they were turning into a jumbled mess.

For activity day we had a few projects to finish up. One thing we did was to decorate notes to send to the girls that haven't been attending primary (children's church group).
Then we used the remainder of our time to decorate these little white boxes that I got at Michaels on clearance for 29 cents. The girls raided my sticker stash and used markers to decorate their dream boxes. I gave each of the girls a picture of the temple to put in their box. They can put in other treasures and little notes of their goals and dreams. They seemed to have fun.
Here are a few pictures that I snapped while they were working on their dream boxes...

- 6 1/2 feet of embroidery floss
- five different sheets of scrapbook paper in a holiday or color coordinating theme. Target has packages of paper in their dollar section
- Silhouette machine or a ruler and exacto knife
- double sided tape
Place your cute paper blank side up and apply a piece of double sided tape.
Drape sweet banner across picture frames, windows, mirrors, Halloween trees, etc. Then make one for each of your favorite holidays.
