Pretties.

I love having all girls.  Three little princesses to dress and cuddle and love to pieces.  We play dress up.  And give makeovers.  And bake in the kitchen.
And there’s glitter.  Lots of glitter.  All things girly come sparkly these days… and those sparkles migrate to pretty much everything in the house.
And there’s stickers.  I don’t know what it is about girls and stickers, but they are inseparable.  I find stickers everywhere.  In the laundry, stuck to the bottom of my socks and when my 2-year-old angel is involved… on the tv screen. 
And there’s the snuggle love.  My favorite moment each day is in the evening before bedtime, nestled in with my three darlings and a good storybook.
And oh, the dresses.  If someone in my family were to have a little girl they would be blessed with dresses beyond all imagination.  (So far it’s only nephews for me!)  It’s impossible for his mama to say no to a pretty frock for my sweethearts.  One peek into their closets would surely reveal my obsession.  Especially Christmas dresses.  (I am embarrassed to say how many I counted in the closets recently…)
So the other day, we were feeling crafty.  (Hubby chuckles every time I say this… because he likes to think by “crafty” I mean scheming and devious.  Go ahead and laugh it up, Honey.)  And we also needed a little something to add to a birthday gift for my daughter’s friend.  
We made these hair clips:  Hot glue + silk flowers + bulk hair clips + a button.  
I’ve seen these anywhere from $5 – $10.  One, maybe.  But times three, they would be out of my budget.  
(The red one is mine, but the girls wanted their flowers big and floofy, of course.)
This doodad was my creative juices leaking out… haven’t worn it yet, but I think it could work.
Live long and drink coffee.
 “Charm can mislead and beauty soon fades.
   The woman to be admired and praised
   is the woman who lives in the Fear-of-God.
Give her everything she deserves!
   Festoon her life with praises!”
Proverbs 31.30 (MSG)
