Poinsettia Hair Flower

Well here's the thing.  I started my own blog, and linked it over here but I just don't have it in me apparently to post to two blogs.  I will just label my posts over here Hairbrained Ideas, and that will be that. Still a little slice of the web to post my creations but not the pressure (so much pressure, ahhh) of my own blog.  

With that said, here is my first creation to be posted.

We were gifted this gorgeous dress from another manager my husband worked with when Miss. Avery was born.  It also has a beautiful red winter coat to go with.  Back then I couldn't have imagined the day it would have actually fit her, but this Christmas was it!  A dress like this doesn't need much, who am I kidding anything, extra but I just had this vision of a beautiful poinsettia flower in her hair.

On a trip to Wally one day I was on the hunt for supplies.  The hair clips, and bundle of flowers cost me $2.25!

First I plucked apart the bundle of flowers and combined together the four flowers into two to make the flower a bit more full.  I had some red ribbon at home and hot glued it around the clip.

Then hot glued the flower layers to the red ribbon hair clip.  I didn't like the stuff that was in the middle of the flowers originally (don't know what it's called), so I replaced it with a large clump of sparkling yellow beads.
I squeezed out a large dot of hot glue and mounded on the beads, and added a little more glue and repeated.
I loved how it turned out and I ended up with a hair flower for Miss. Avery and one to share!

Simple, pretty, and cheap! Can't beat that!

Kids these days are all hopped up on...

...Mommy's coffee with white chocolate raspberry creamer!?

I was playing around with these fake poinsettia flowers I got at Wally yesturday (I'll post later what I am doing with them) and Levi walks in the dinning room holding my coffee cup.

Without a moments pause he tips it up like he's just casually getting his morning pick me up.

I see a little brown coffee on his undershirt, so I opened up his jammies and BAM!, it's like a flood of coffee! 

And what happens you ask, when you take away the coffee cup and start cleaning up the little monster?

He pitches a fit! :)

And wants to hide away from the world as most do when they don't get their morning cup of joe.

Oh Levi, what on earth am I gonna do with you?

I guess start soaking your shirt in cold water.
