The Caffee girls dress up and a mini-project!



A few weeks ago I needed a little headband for Maddie. I wanted one of the lacy crochet ones that you see everywhere now, but I really didn't feel like crocheting one. So I came up with this quick and easy project and decided to share it with you! All you need is a piece of lace that has holes along the top and a thin piece of ribbon long enough to go around your head and tie. Work the ribbon through the holes (I used a bodkin and it only took seconds), add a little seam sealant to the ends (you can tell I didn't do that on this one), and you are done!


They are so girly and sweet! I think we are going to try making some colorful ones by painting the lace with watered down craft paint tonight, I'll let you know how that goes. How cute is that kid?


Those little eyes just melt me...and that spaghetti sauce on her cheek.....


Back to the headband! Isn't it so cute on her?


Today I was needing to fix-up a little after being in PJ's for two days (I had pink eye, great fun). Do you ever get like that? I just feel so cruddy after a while and a little make-up and cute hair can make me feel so much better. Anyhow, I decided to try out the headband for myself and I really like it!


(I know I look goofy in this picture, looking the wrong way and all, but I wanted you to see the front so excuse the silliness!)

It makes me feel like my ponytail has a little style. I'm definitely making more of these! Anything that can make such a difference with so little effort is the perfect project for me! What do you think?

I'm going to go dive into my lace drawer right now--two little girls need these! (Well, one not-so-little; she'll be 10 soon and I just gave her deodorant. O_o )
