Sick Day?

My darling daughter woke up feeling awful! Sweet thing, couldn’t breathe, couldn’t talk, coughing like crazy! It was a unanimous decision to go to the pediatrician instead of school! Fortunately or unfortunately, depending on how you looked at it, my darling wasn’t sick. No strep. No fever. No nuthin’. At least with bacteria there’s ANTIbiotics! Instead she has ALLERGIES. Texas allergies are starting to catch on to my kids, even tho I give them Zyrtec! Anyway, she was so pitiful at the doctor’s office. Until we got home. Its amazing how perky they get when they realize they don’t have to go to school.

We took pictures of her candles and posted them in her Etsy shop:

We worked on making valentines:

And we had a tea party! Central Market is so lovely. They put all the broken or wilted flowers in a bucket with a piggy bank for the kids to “buy.” My daughter picked out a lively bouquet:

 

Mid afternoon she was really starting to feel better, and I said, “school tomorrow!” Sadly, after bath and intense studying of spelling words she wilted worse than our flowers. Her eyes turned to glass, her throat dried up, she couldn’t pass air in or out her nose. You can’t fake this stuff. *sigh* Sick days with my darling are pretty wunnerful. I think I’ll keep her home one more day. 😀

Felt Flower and Butterfly Hair Accessories!

I’ve recently entered the felt flower craze! Felt flowers are GORGEOUS if done correctly. So far I am LOVING my daffodils.

And my pansies.

In addition to flowers, I’ve been working on the sweetest, most delicate little butterflies! I use two different colored butterflies one on top of the other. I stitch them together down their center to create their tiny bodies and use a wee spot of glue to secure them onto the bobby pin. When in the hair they appear to have landed there as if by magic. My favorite is an olive and mustard colored butterfly. Although, these red and white Valentine’s butterflies come in a close second!

Guess what?!?! I received a lightbox for Christmas! Hello awesome product photos!!! 😀
