My husband told me a while back that he wants Charlotte to wear more bows. I was in shock because he is not all about frilly things. Well, our little miss doesn’t have much hair, even after 4.5 months! We tried to let her wear headbands since we got several at her baby shower and I bought a few. Well, apparently they are not “one size fits all”. Her little head was WAY to big for the newborn headbands, who am I kidding, she didn’t even fit the 0-3 months headbands. For being just shy of 7lbs as a newborn, she had a gigantic head. Anyway….my husband mentioned again that he wants her to wear bows. We will have to opt for cute headbands instead of bows until her hair grows more!
I was scrolling through pinterest and found some DIY headband tutorials. Umm…yes please! I am thinking some matching mommy and me headbands are in our near future! This post is more of a bookmark and accountability so I actually create these. I’ll let you know what I come up with. My crafty wheels are turning up in my noggin’!
Cute, cute, cute!
After experimenting with banners, I decided that it would be super cute to do the same thing but mini sized! They turned out so so cute. I love them!
Using my Cricut, I was able to write and cut the banners!
They are adorable!! I designed them as a cake topper, but really they can be used to decorate anything small in size.
I have another version “small sized“, but the letters are cut out and are white instead. The letter cut outs would be too small if this was done in the mini version. It’s still perfect size to decorate small objects and maybe even used as a cake topper if the cake is a sheet cake size.
Yesterday was my very first Mother’s Day. It was wonderful! I am so excited about this adventure. It hasn’t been easy. Parenting is hard. It is so SO hard. But I wouldn’t give her up for anything in the world. It changes you. People have said that to me before I got pregnant and while I was pregnant. I thought I knew and understand what they meant. I’m not dismissing what I knew while pregnant and before because I did know that I would love my baby more than I could imagine. It’s just now that I have her in my arms I can imagine how much I love her. It’s like a hidden compartment of my heart has been blasted open and now I know (at least somewhat!) what I couldn’t imagine before. Ahh, my heart is full!
Since I am home full-time and can devote more time to it, I have decided to open back up my Etsy shop! I am SO SO SO excited! I’m going to continue keeping up with education and creating supporting materials for TPT, but my love and ‘therapy’ at the moment is monogramming. I love what I can create! Plus, I have created some really awesome things for Charlotte that I would love to share with others too! Here is an example:
It’s quilted alphabet letters! These are great for learning the alphabet, spelling names, or can just be used as colorful toys now as she is learning hand-eye coordination. When she starts teething, these are going to be great to dampen and chill them to help sooth her sore gums!
These turned out really neat and I love them!
