 today we are using our cricuts to make  a GROWTH chart! Yippe.  I’m somewhat obessed with them…and have been hoarding ideas on what to do. I didn’t want to do one on a wall (we rent) cause i didn’t want to be like the new karate kid (with will smith’s boy) and have to leave […]

we’ve got ears…

say cheers!  to complete my daughter’s outfit I made some mickey ears (or minnie ears since there are bows on them.)  start with a circle of felt… snip it and overlap the piece and hot glue it… makes a nice little cup shape. then I just added a bow some with ribbon…some with fabric… (I made the […]

the mickey invites and cupcake toppers and games and….oh wait that’s all (today)

nothing special…black paper…some polka dots…faux buttons.  I just traced a bowl for the big circle and then traced a cup for the two ears. and then mass produced…. Just some circles with sharpie dots..YOU COULD use actual buttons…but when you are making a dirty dozen then you don’t to deplete your white button stash. I […]
