Craft Project #2: Flower Barretts

I found a little time while Baby K was asleep, the boys playing the Wii, Baked Potatoes in the oven, Mr. B. on a conference call to do this project:
Flower Barretts
I am still learning how to do stuff like this.  With 3 boys then having a little girl, it has been a new world for me. {I have been enjoying pink more than I thought I would}.  My oldest,Big A, came up to me when I was making these and said, "Mom, aren't you glad that you have a girl finally that you can do princess stuff?".  What a goofball, I told him that I was making them for him to wear...:)
Hobby Lobby last week had 50% off all of these items!  I couldn't resist these cute brads!  {I really like the flat style of barretts that you can get...easier to work with}

So, I got out the good ol' glue gun and attached matching ribbon to the barrett.

While I was feeding Baby K her bottle, I was watching Barefoot Contessa.  She was making Black & White Angelfood cake.  I really don't like angelfood cake, but this really looked yummy.  I love Ina Garten's kitchen and house, I think that I could live there!  Watching her make something chocolate, I couldn't help myself to make some brownies...not as fancy...just out of a box.  Yum!

Enjoy your day!
