Latest creations

Naomi needed some skirts to wear this summer, so I started with this one. This is the first time I've done a tiered skirt, and it was simple and fun. The hardest part is picking out the material...I have a hard time envisioning possibilities! I'll post a picture of her other skirt (not a tiered one) when she wears it.


I suppose this isn't really a "creation", but I was very tired of Gabe's hair looking long and unkempt. I was also tired of shelling out money at a hair cutting salon for his hair to be trimmed. So I decided to experiment with Matt's clippers. This time around I just used the 4 all over; now that I know how that looks, I can adjust for next time.

Here were my tactics:
...stools
...in the bathroom
...a movie playing on the tv right outside the bathroom door
...suckers
...speed


Check out this mop of hair that used to be attached to Gabe's head!


They were good sports.


Apparently the sucker wasn't enough, and Gabe had to eat part of the stick too.

Wow, what a mom! Did you find that Gabe (who looks fab in his new haircut) ate a lot of hair with his sucker. That's the problem we always have. Wish I had a solution!
