Peter Pan Hats

For the Piggie's b-day party, I made a bunch of these Peter Pan hats for the boys. Her theme was fairies. I ordered fairy wings for the girls, but wanted to give the boys something they can dress up with as well. Initially I wanted to do Gnome hats, but after consulation with one of my girlfriends, decided the Peter Pan hats would be a better route. I used the tute from Make It & Love It.

Cotton Web Belt - Peguin Knock Off

The inspiration came from Peguin Clothing.  The Mr saw this online and liked it.  I told him I'll make it for him.  How does my version measure up?

The only thing I would change is to go with a wider webbing.

Products I Love - Hand Lotion

I wanted to start sharing on a regular basis on some of the good finds out there.  So my here it goes. 

I've used a lot of different hand lotions.  Especially after having kids, I'm constantly washing my hands.  I hate the greasy feeling you get with some products.  I feel an effective hand lotion should moisturize and absorb into your skin.  That said, my favs are:

These are premium priced products, but a little goes a long way.  I think you'll love them just as I do.

Boho Bling

Using the same technique as the Hippie Chic bracelets I made, I swapped out the ball and chain for a strand of rhinestones and made this. I love that it's understated bling.  I also used a clasp instead of a bead for closure - more of a finished look.
