A little "bee"

Are you ready for full-on cheesy? The kids at school call me "Mrs. B." So if I have kids they will be "little bs." Get it? I know-corny. I still think it's too darn cute. Over at Chic and Cheap Nursery today, they are featuring a cute little bee baby shower. <3 <3

Here are some other cute baby bee inspirations...maybe a first birthday party..or sneak it into the nursery decor?

I hate spiders...but

this guy isn't that scary.

Last year I copied the "eek" in frames from the girls at Eighteen25.

My spider is a black pom-pom made of regular old yarn. I wrapped my yarn around five pipe cleaners. Four were turned into legs (half on each side). The last one has each end put through buttons for eyes.

I can't remember where I saw him. Maybe I picked him up from The Crafting Chicks last year? I tried to look back at their blog but didn't see it. Both sets of ladies: Eighteen25 and The Crafting Chicks, are my go to craft blogs. The sisters at Eighteen25 hold "Spooktacular September" each year and The Crafting Chicks hold "Trick or Tweet."  You should seriously go check them out. :)

Meeting Kendi

Well Kendi survived a blog super-fan attack. A few weekends ago we popped into her new store bloom. It was adorable...of course. My mom and husband kept asking, "How do you know she'll be there?" She was and my mom went right up to her and told her: "Can you take a picture with my daughter?"

She is obviously the adorable, well-dressed one on the right.
I wanted pretty much everything, but I am a teacher folks. I walked out with a cute dress in a tribal print and a beautiful, flowy navy top. If you live anywhere around Dallas, you have to go. McKinney has lots of shops, Third Monday Trade Days, and delicious restaurants. You can find the link to Kendi's website and blog HERE.

Free Mummies

I keep seeing mummies all over pinterest and blogs. People are wrapping everything in gauze, tp, and white crepe paper. For a "spooky" light in the bathroom during our Halloween party, I put three little mummy lanterns together. Best part: they were free!

I grabbed three different shape jars (I save them all : / ).

Then I soaked some gauze (from our first aid bin) with modge podge using a sponge brush.
After that I simply wrapped them up my jars. I dug in my craft bin for some googly eyes, stuck those between the folds, and TA DA:

Hopefully they won't scare people too bad! That could make for a stinky bathroom. ;)

Wedding Gift Thank You Cards

Our friends' thank you cards are really cute! They took them during their engagement shoot. Much cuter than my boring ol' thank you card picture of us on the wedding day. I love chalkboards...not to sound too much like a teacher.
