    Those are adorable! Is it wrong that I want butterflies in my hair at 45? I don’t wanna grow up. I can see how you could easily get carried away making dozens of them. Great gift idea for kids!

    Okay, I know this is a “family” blog and you can delete this if you want but the misspelling of birthday made me laugh and brought back haunting memories of when I sent out a postcard at work for listeners to remember to support their “pubic” radio station. AHHHHHHH… it went out to hundreds and hundreds of people. (that darn missing “L”… it will haunt me the rest of my life… or at least every birtday. 🙂

    these are so pretty, really love the birthday card! 🙂
    misspelling birthday ha! well, it has happened to me but I misspelled the name of my hubby’s niece and only realized when my sister-in-law read the card and I also misspelled my mother-in-law’s name in her birthday card, she told everyone! 😉 4 hours to write the post, I know what you mean Alex, it’s a long process, it takes me longer to decide which pictures I will be posting than to “do” the project sometimes. Hubby thinks I’m crazy with my blog but I take over 100 pictures sometimes and only post 10 or 12!!! & wish you a beautiful vacation with your husband, I hope you will have fun and enjoy your time off in New Orleans! 🙂 Relax and Rest lucky girl!!! 🙂

    I swear this conversation just went down after Tess saw that I liked your post on Facebook.

    Tess: Mom, are you friends with Northstory?

    Me: Yes. Why?

    Tess: She just posted some really cute hair clips. (Insert smile that says “you know we’ve gotta make these, right?”)

    So cute! And I love the headband. Tess just tried one on while we were shopping that could’ve put to shame the fascinators that the royal family wears. Now we can make our own and she can make it as big as she wants.

    This is genius! I love the clips and the headbands – and my girls are hair accessory aficianados!

    Also, I feel your pain when it comes to being Joann and Hobby Lobby-less. Being a crafty Canadian requires just a bit more out-of-the-box-ness, doesn’t it? 😉

    I love making frilly hair accessories, too. And sometimes, I even enjoy wearing them. But most of the time, they’re just fun to make and give as gifts. I love how sweet they look on that kraft paper. And I’m so jelly about those four sets of stamps you snagged. My little one set is feeling really lonely all of a sudden. 🙂

    And by the by, I totally can relate to the blog post taking WAY more time than it should because of a typo or usually because I’m just too much of a perfectionist and can’t live with a photo being just “okay.” It’s a problem. Sigh. Just know you’re not alone!
