Happy St. Patty's Day!

We aren't Irish, but we can still celebrate.  I'm wearing my only green shirt to work today which probably doesnt matter since I wont be leaving my office except for the occasional trip to the bathroom....but, it's the thought that counts right?

Yesterday the weather was horrible!  Rainy and chilly - the kind of weather that makes you want your jammies, a movie and your bed!  But, life goes on, so I worked and then Boo and I went to Joann Fabrics Store.  I wanted to try to make a fabric flower headband for Boo so I got a bunch of supplies and went to work.  They were super simple and fun to make.  I'm thinking about starting a little WAHM business with random things I make.....  (Like I need more to do!)  But I think it would be fun.

I *love* the way they came out... 

The yellow one is for us and the pink one I'm sending to a friend as a surprise for her daughter.  I hope she loves it!

In the next week I'm going to take Boo for her 6 month pictures!  I cant wait.  That's why I made the yellow flower headband.  I'm going to bring in the quilt that my Grandmother made for me before she passed away and use that as a backdrop for the photo shoot!  It's got really pretty yellows & oranges in it so this flower is perfect!  Boo is named after my Grandmother so I love the idea of including the quilt in the pictures.  It's a great way to tie the two of them together!

Flowers & Clovers!

Signed - Boo's Mom!
