It's all about the girly stuff

For the last two nights I have not slept well. Whether or not it is related to the pregnancy, my insomnia is at least affected by it. I sometimes have a hard time getting back to sleep when I wake in the night anyway, but how much harder is that to do when I have a little body doing somersaults inside of me for hours on end?! Last night I got between 4 and 5 hours of sleep, and that was with a mercy hour--Adam getting up with the kids just as I was finally drifting back off to sleep, otherwise it would have been less.


So, did I take a nap this afternoon? No.

I made bows!! Who can resist brand new ribbon just begging to be shaped and wired and glued?! Here's my latest batch:





This is a really bad picture; they really are much cuter in real life. But I had to show you the fun things I was inspired to make after finding this amazing hairbow-making site! I've been making bows for Katie since she was a baby, but nothing I've made compares to those adorable pinwheel bows! They're my favorite. The streamer bow on the top left was inspired by It's A Girl Thing (thanks to Shelli for the link to that site--it's feeding my addiction!).

Can you tell what I've been thinking about the last couple of weeks? Nothing but little girly hair! Here's another 'do Katie and I came up with the other day.

Pretty simple, needed some bows, of course! Now we have some for next time . . .

Would you like to make some cute bows for your favorite cousin's daughter? I have no passion to make them, but love to put them in Lexi's hair!!! Families are Forever aren't they? ;-))

I had been thinking of putting pictures of my bows that I made for Mariah on my blog, but I didn't want more people asking me to make them some! I also have hair-do pictures of Keirra I was thinking of putting on mine. Are we alike or what?!

So cute! It's always more fun to make cute girly things than to take a nap. And you did so many!

Email me your address and I'll send you some felt hair clips that I made as favors for Emma Jane's birthday. They will look darling in Katie's new hair style.
