How to Make a Hair Bow Hanger

I think I'm not alone in saying little girls have A LOT of BOWS!  I finally decided it was time to pack up her infant head bands, and boy did Carolyn have a lot of those!  Now we've moved on to the little hair bow clippies and because I have a feeling she'll be wearing these for a long time I decided it was time to get organized.  So with a little help from my husband (he's my master spray painter) we made her this cute hair bow hanger.

Carolyn's 1st Birthday - Mermaid Party

Carolyn's 1st birthday was such a special day for her and me!  I've been planning this party all year! Actually longer than that even, but let's not get distracted with how crazy I am...  The way I looked at it, this was the only birthday party for her where I would be able to choose the theme, from now on she'll have more and more of an opinion and will pick her own theme.  So why not pick my absolute favorite, mermaids!!!!

Regency Gold Open Gown

I made a new regency open gown!  I LOVE it especially because it it goes over my other gowns that I've made and I can use it as a mix-n-match piece!

Vegetarian Sheppard's Pie

I have several vegetarian friends and I love making meals that they can enjoy as non-meat eaters. St. Patrick's Day is one of those meat eaters holidays where the main course is definitely not for them, but not anymore!  I have discovered the best vegetarian Sheppard's Pie!

1st Trip to the Getty & the Beach

At only 1 month old we took Carolyn to the Getty and to the beach!  We're very lucky to have a great friend who's 2nd cousin has a house in Santa Monica.  For the past two summers she's invited Rebekah to stay at her house when she's out of town and she's allowed to invite friends! So Cool!!!

When I was preparing for baby I registered at three places, Babies'R'Us, Buy Buy Baby, and Amazon.com.  Each place will give you free gifts just for registering, some were much nicer than others.
