Happy 4th

We started our celebration of the 4th a little early with a new top. We are headed up to the cabin for the weekend. We are going to go to the parade up there and so I decided Addi needed a festive top that wasn't overly 4thy (so that it can be worn more than once). I borrowed a top from that a friend had bought at a craft fair and fashioned this after that. Turned out pretty cute. I would also like to note that my little model in the making came up with her poses all by herself (I am in big trouble)!

DIY wrap bracelet

I saw a bracelet like this in a magazine the other day and loved it...the one in the magazine was over $100 (a bit out of my budget).  I went to the mall the other day and searched all over for a knock off version and couldn't fine one any where so, I made one.  I found the instructions here.  I got all the supplies at Hobby Lobby for a ton cheaper then the original.  It was supper easy to do and only took a couple of hours.  I used beading wire instead of the thread, but just because I couldn't find the thread in the color I wanted.  I love taking things that I have seen in the stores or magazines and making them myself.

So I gave the kids haircuts the other day...Addi's ended up a bit shorter than planned but very cute.  Gavin was a bit harder to keep still but he is going for the messy look so it works.  I think my hairdresser friends would be proud.
