I finally tried some bows from this amazing blog with tutorials!
My favorite right now is the ones like #4. The bunching kind, that you sew a loose running stitch on one end, and gather the strings.
Obviously (from lack on posting), my random acts of obsession have NOT been in the crafting arena. My obsessions have been taken over by normal mom duties that I neglect during the school year, and since summer is coming to an end, we are trying to spend as much time together now as we can!

Berkely just turned 2. I know she knows what a star, circle, and heart is. The other shapes are kind of guess work. I cut some shapes out of felt, hand stitched them on some light fabric, sewed some material on the back, and created a little concentration game for us to play. I am hoping this will help a little with shapes.

Layered on the frosting in gigantic swirls.
Wrapped a diaper's box and a computer box and created a Cupcake stand.
Made some burlap flowers and material flowers for a picture display. (bad picture quality, sorry)
Painted a 3 by 3 block of wood, drilled some holes in top, added some dowells (all different lengths), and added some material, flowers, button, etc.
Used little clothes pins to clip my Berkely all over it.

I know. Rats are grose, so are their traps, but not any more!
Okay, So you get a rat trap. You can also use a mouse trap, it is just smaller, I wanted to go big!
Gathered my loot. Paper, paint, ribbon, modge, etc.
Painted the Rat Trap and HATED IT!!! I hated how you could still see the wording. It was ugly.
That's much better!!!!
Added some ribbon and pink rope (from the gift bag).
Then I took my hubby away from basketball for 5 minutes while we clamped down the spring trap part back on to the trap. I don't know how we would have done it without clamps!
And I added a little burned edges satin material under the flap, and a satin flower.
I went out to the car to find this mess below:
And made it look a little bit better using my car papers, modge podged, wonder.
Thanks for sharing in my latest obsessions! Have a great day!
