I dream in French and my girl's hair cut

Dream in French picture taking from my cell phone. Ohhh yeah!!!

I gave my Fairy a haircut because i was not going to the hairdresser with a baby. My baby is whining as i write this. I don't know why, but i think she wants me to get up. (roll of eyes).
I think i did a great job with the haircut!
I do not dream in French anymore. Weird. Sad.

I am on house arrest and cute pictures from my Cell phone

I am on house arrest!  Sitting at the front door on the steps to get some fresh air with the baby in my arms. Staring at my flowers seeds, growing very slowly.
Motherhood is not for Sissies and house arrest is a joke! Moms and pregnant woman do it all the time. 
Don't let me start on the gas prices and how Moms are staying home because they can't afford it.
Another story...


my boy and Soleil playing and reading books.

How to make an English cabbage rose with paper for scrapbooking and handmade tags


I made some cute Mother's Day tags for Church. I used an assortment of papers.
This one looks very Shabby chic to me.
I used a special scripture for it, very appropriate for Mother's day!

Proverbs 3:15

15 She is more precious than rubies: and all the things thou canst desire are not to be compared unto her.



I thought I would do a tutorial on how to make an English cabbage rose for your cards and scrapbooking.
It is very easy.
You will need:
A paper punch in a flower shape,
Brads,
Jewels if you want,
Tissue paper,



Punch your tissue paper,


Pass your brad through the middle.


Pass it through your paper,


Wrinkle the Tissue paper with your fingers.


I glued a Jewel on the brad.
Happy Mother's Day, Don't let any idiots tell you you are not special. 
Love you guys!

Must have this spring Fashion and garden 2012


Cherry tree blossoms in Utah

Mimi is 12. She can now wear my shoes and our hands are the same size.




My favorites this spring, a cute dress in a bright color. Bright pink here.






My oldest and my youngest.



And of course something Coral, I love this very French Polka Coral dress...


Those Coral Geranium are beautiful!


I have no idea why but the Landlord redid his beds before we moved in. Cut some trees...No bushes, no flowers, just a couple of Lilies. I have been working very hard pulling grass off the beds. I planted wild flower seeds since it is not my garden. Trying to fill it up and have less weeds. It's a little bit sad right now...


The only happy and interesting thing in front of the house is a pink chicken rubber ducky...

Fablehaven books Garden Birthday party. Mimi is 12!


Mimi is 12! She is growing on me! She read the Fablehaven series and is a big fan. She wanted a party inspired by the books and we had fun. We went to the dollar store and got everything there!
I have never seen a cream puffs cake like this one. I think it is my invention.
I thought real pansies flowers would be fun! Pansies flowers are edible...It is always funny when you tell the kids to eat it! lol 
If you read the books, you will think this party is genius!

Chocolate, strawberry and lemon drizzled cream puffs tower with edible yellow pansies flowers.

I used cream puffs from the frozen section. Thaw them and glue them together with melted chocolate. Simply melt chocolate chips in microwave.


The syrups are just Duncan Hines pie fillings


If you read the books...this party will make you smile. We had chocolate chips pancakes. The syrups were Lemon, strawberry and peaches.


An assortment of fruits, blueberries, strawberries, peaches, raspberries and oranges.


The cake and oranges are under a cloche.


Of course, you have to have milk...
Tablecloth from Target.



I started a collection of bird houses. I don't have many but i love them!


Strawberries, orange wedges and lime wedges in the water.




Green plates and color matching napkins. We had book marks as party favors.



The girls made decorated some pretty mirrors with paints, butterflies, stickers and bling.



We had orange, green, yellow and red balloons.



We made some French garden party invitations from potpourri sachets. 


I printed these tags from the Graphic Fairy.




Glued them back to the sachets with a ribbon...

Hope you liked the party, we had so much fun putting it together!

Plates, napkins, flower streamers, book marks, candles, sachets, butterfly, stickers, butterfly wings from dollar store.

Before and after
"Strato" effect
