Flower Fun Friday Follow

I am not a big flower person- My husband gets off cheap this way. And I def. do not like fake flowers. But...
Then I saw all the beautiful clips and hair bows circulating on etsy and we just had to have them. And what does every budget conscious mama think, but I can make that myself. And so off to walmart we went. We bought a huge mixed bag of fake flowers for around $2 and several bunches of pretty colors we liked for a cost of about $10 total.
Well, after making a bunch of flower hair clips (like the one shown below) with the girls and their cousin and aunt, we had so many left. And so......
my daughter made homemade cards for her teacher as an end of the year gift,


and wrapped presents for her friends' birthdays,





and helped her sister make this hat for silly hat day at school,


and helped me make this diaper cake for a recent baby shower!



Happy Friday - a little early!


And as it is becoming the usual....




Follow me and I will follow you- just leave me a comment telling me you did so.
