If you have a little girl or little girls, you will have clips, lots of cute little clips. Can I just say, OMG, clips everywhere?!! And I keep losing them because we don’t have a way to organize it. I put my thinking hat on, ok I admit, I turned to Pinterest and I saw some neat ideas. This here, is my solution!
Here is what it looks like on the back.
This is very easy, took me about 10 mins. All you need is a picture frame, a piece of felt and ribbons. No sewing needed! I even have a flower clip lying around waiting to be used. Cost me $5, which was the cost of the frame.
My husband got me an iPhone 6 and made me keep the plastic on while the new case gets shipped. Scratches are a no no because it reduces the resale value when I sell it my husband said. So while waiting for my case to arrive, I thought, hey I can make something temporary. I got lots of felts and fabric scraps. It’s much better than bringing the phone around in its plastic protector. Plus, when was the last time I made something for myself? I put my Pinterest hat on and ta-da! Quick & easy too.
Here’s my baby, already 1! Growing way too fast!
I didn’t know what a cake smash was when my son turned 1 but I do now. It’s my last baby and I wanted to do a cake smash! CAKE SMASH! CAKE SMASH! I was quite determined. (Good thing I am a somewhat enthusiast or perhaps a semi-pro photographer and have all the camera equipment for this, otherwise I would have hire a photographer, which would drive up the cost and the hubby would put a stop to this madness.) Anyways, I started pinning for ideas and tips on how to do a cake smash a couple weeks before she turned 1. On my check lists were: Tutorial on baking the cake, buying the ingredients, getting the happy birthday banner, etc. etc. Then 3 days before the shoot, I suddenly realized that I had not planned for her outfit! What was thinking?! What was wrong with me?! Was she gonna be naked with just her cloth diaper on? I needed a tutu and a birthday hat!!! Too late to order anything from Esty! I was mad, like angry mad! Lucky for me, I was able to find a mom to sell me her daughter’s tutu and good thing I am somewhat crafty, found a tutorial on Pinterest and spent Sunday night working on her birthday crown.
So here it is, little Miss Leah’s cake smash session! I had it in my head how it was going to go down, how she would go to town with it, plunging face first into the cake. After all, she loves to eat. But nope, she wouldn’t have it. She touched it with 1 finger and wanted nothing to do it. She was more interested in walking! She had to discover, just right before the cake smash session, that she could take 2 to 3 steps on her own.
The cake was mostly untouched…this is what the cake looked like after the cake smash session. GRRRRR! YOUUUUU LITTLEE!!
Big brother in the mean time was salivating. Poor kid. But He had fun too.
Of course he got a crown too.
