Bows and Matching Socks

I made Princess G. some bows and matching socks for church and I really like how they turned out...I know, I know, you probably thinking...More bows? Well, she had to have Easter bows and then I figured that I may as well make her a pair of socks to match her dress. Princess G, had to celebrate in style, hehehe! Prince A will be wearing his black suit and  tie that match sister's dress and mommy's skirt.

Happy Easter everyone!!!!

Personalize Name Plate

Now, that Princess G. will have her own room, I wanted to make something for her room to decorate it a little bit, you know, making more girly. I will be showing you other things that I am making for her room but here what I came up with so far.

 A "personalize name plate" which you can always turn unto a hair bow holder.                   

Here is what I used

The Primer
This is suppose to be purple but I craft at night, so you can barely tell the color.
While waiting for paint to dry, I cut the name and shape using my Cricut which have not got any use for a long time now. 

After it was all dry ( the next day) I put my letters where I wanted them and a few shape,  making sure it will all good good and fit...I had to cut them again because the first set I did was much too bit and those are 1".
Then I added the Mod Pogde which took forever to dry
And VOILA!!! You can also add ribbons on the back to turn it unto a hair bow holder.

Hope you at least understand a bit and let me know if you have any questions.

Ps. it is always nice to know if you make one!

An addiction...Probably...An Issue..Possible!

Half of my 20 months old hair accessories...And you don't even want to see her tutus and belts...
Should I seek for help?........ If so, if you know someone who could help with this problem let me know, even tough, I think I am a complete lost case.

They like me...They really like me!

I got "The Versatile Blogger" from Purple Froggie Clay Stuff and the Stylish Blogger Award from Grandma's Guide to Life
Thank you for the wonderful awards, made my day!!!

The rules after excepting this award: 

  • Thank the person who awarded you.
  •  Divulge 7 things about yourself.
  • Award 15 discovered bloggers.
Since I don't like to follow the rule, I will tell you the 7 things about but I simple can't choose 15 bloggers to give it to so if you know you are awesome or I left a comment in your blog, it is all your to take.
  1. I love to do crafts, HATE cooking and don't mind cleaning...Well, except for laundry...You wear it, wash it, fold it then you wear it again and wash and fold.....then start the cycle again...It never end.
  2. I love shopping and hate grocery shopping ( mostly because I don't care much for food) so my wonderful hubby does it.
  3. I hate reading instructions because of that I suck at following them and giving them also ( the reasons why I don't do a ton tutorials but if you see something that you want to do let me and will try my best to help)
  4. I speak three languages ( English, Haitian Creole and French) and I understand most Spanish...One day, I hope my kids will also be able to speak them too ( we are working on it)
  5. I don't know how to ride a bike and have no intention on learning.Probably wondering what I did as a child...Well, if you most know... I am a climber, so I climb trees and "stuff" ...And I don't do two wheels.
  6. I prefer to be hot then cold... unfortunately for me, now I live where it shows so my house stays on 80* as soon as outside temperature drop below 60*...My poor hubby, oh well, We have to compromise, hehehe!
  7. I learned to make girly things when my suppose-to-be boy turned out to be a so-very-sassy-girl ( which some people might say she got from me, but it is a lie, a vicious lie I tell... I am much too innocent to be sassy) You believe me right??? Yes?...No?

Well, that all folks... Now, you probably thinking: " This girl is so weird!"

Getting Ready for Haitian Flag's Day !!!!

Since my kids are half Haitian, I decided this year to start teaching them about my country and our culture, after all they need to know where their mommy come from. To celebrate, I started by making a tutu and matching hair bows, of course...I still have to celebrate in style, right?! Not like you did not see that coming, hehehe! I even make my own little bottle cap images using our flag.
Even though, we can't make it to Miami for the festival, we will still have our small little family par-tay!!!! 

Now, I just need to find something for Prince A for this special day.

A little something about me.

{one} how often do you do laundry?
Every three weeks...I try to avoid laundry as much as possible...Really pathetic if you ask me. This week I had to go to Target to get my son a pair of pants and shirts so that I could wait a few more days to do laundry. 
{two} what is your favorite type of cookie?
Not really a big cookie fan...At least I haven't find one that I really like to call a favorite.

{three} what would you do with an extra $2000 per month?
Hire a personal driver, someone to clean my house and a chef of course...However, there is a big chance that I will just go shopping a lot which bring me to my need of a personal driver.

{four} what was/is your favorite subject in school?
I always really liked math and chemistry

{five} have you ever ridden in a hot air balloon?
No, not going to happen..Unless my life depend on it.

{six} what was your high school mascot?
The pioneers

{seven} if you had the chance to go into space, would you?
Probably not. I like my feet on the ground as much as I can...That will totally take me out of my comfort zone and that I will not be too happy about.

{eight} how often do you go dancing?
A while ago...Would love to go soon...We'll see!

{nine} would you rather drive or fly?
Depend on how long of the drive or the fly... so, which ever one will take less of my time from when we leave the house to our destination.

{ten} have you ever been caught re-gifting?
No… I don’t like to re-gifted, I think it is tacky and just plain lazy and cheap. If you don't like it, you shouldn't give it to someone else, unless they ask you for it ( but not as a gift).

Wordlessly Wednesday

Change of Plan

 So...Yea...I was doing to do a tutorial on how to make a "personalize Hair Bow Holder" but I am still waiting for the paint to dry ( did not know it was going to take so long), my computer crashed and my wonderful boy made a big "poopy" mess in his room by taking his dirty diaper off...No need to draw a picture but let just say it was DISGUSTING and GROSS...So, to make my night a bit better, I did this cute Easter card. It was really easy to make and I even got to use my Cricut which I don't use often enough. I really should make more cards, they are fun to make and really easy!

What do you think?

Made this tutu last night and I really like
