Monday Moments - You can't say I didn't try...

I don't really consider myself a "crafty" person. I wish I enjoyed crafts more, but I don't have the patience or the mind set. I usually stick to my cooking, cleaning, organizing and writing. Those are the things I'm good at. But every now and then I muster up the motivation to channel the small part of me that will attempt a craft here and there.

My latest motivation was making cute little clips for my little "R". I know I'm the minority, but I'm not really a fan of the big bows or flower headbands. I kind of think little "R" looks like a big birthday or Christmas present when I've tried putting them on her head. I think her face is just too cute to draw the attention away from the top of her head. But now that she's got a little hair I think a subtle understated clip here and there would look really cute.

So...I went out and bought some cute ribbon and little embellishments to make some trendy little clips. I think they turned out pretty darn cute for an untalented crafty like myself.

Unfortunately little "R" will have none of it. Sometimes I can sneak them into her hair un-expecting. But the second she realizes they are there...she pulls them out immediately and brings them to me. Then she claps and giggles like it's a game of hide-and-seak...and she's the winner. I guess their good for something.

I'm with ya, little bows are perfect for little faces. But what do I know with no girl. The clips are darling though!

Very Cute! sneaking them into the hair is the best way. Once my daughter was wise to me we resorted to bangs.
