Brian and Eli got me a fire pit for my birthday so we can roast marshmallows outside (normally we roast them in the fire place haha). We all had s'mores made with jumbo marshmallows! Plus we had fresh popcorn, the best BBQ in town, Olivia made baked potato salad (I would eat it everyday if I could), Lauren made the cake (giant Stay Golden bar) and gold cupcakes - PERFECT! 
Bday marshmallow roast!!

Blythe Crazy

Strawberry Fest Blythe Size Hat
I made this little strawberry blythe crocheted cap last night! SO many ladies to blame for my new blythe addiction hahaha started with Amber - I met her Blythe and realized how awesome they were, then I traded Virginie a handmade blanket for Charlotte (doll in photo) and now my sweet Olivia is keeping my blythe addiction going- strong! hahaha! So crazy in fact, Olivia started Oh Strumpets and Blythe Too! We didn't wanna overload you non-Blythe lovers, which I totally use to be one ps! But not anymore!
So go check  Oh Strumpets and Blythe Too! if you love Blythe! Contact us if you'd like to be featured on the Blythe Blog :) Heck or any Strumpets blog for that matter!
Yay for the week being half way over!!

Crafters against SOPA

Normally, I'm not too serious, but this is something very important to me. Congress is trying to pass SOPA; the online piracy act - it is bad news bears! If you use google, blogger, wordpress, flickr, twitter, pinterest, instagram, etc you will be affected - in a major way. Please read about it and form an opinion! If SOPA goes through life will change in the USA, and not for the better. 

Tell Congress: Don’t censor the Web here

Help raise awareness about PIPA & SOPA

Polar Bear Crocheted Hats

Once Eli told Brian and I he wanted to be a Polar bear at our wedding haha why you ask? Because he's our ring bear duh and white is most appropriate for a wedding! He really is so hilarious and cute! 
I just love him! We told him he could 100% be our ring bear! 
First human crocheted hat I've ever made! Eli is just toooooo cute!!! ❤
This weekend I tried my hand at making polar bear hats 
- one for Eli (human kid size) and one Blythe size! Eli could not be more cute! 
 I have fallen in love with Blythe ps. I always thought they were SO weird, but now I just love em! The first one I ever saw was Amber's in MO - I never knew their eyes changed when you pulled the string!!! Now Olivia and I are Blythe CRAZY!

Valentine Paper Heart Chain DIY

We finally took down the Christmas tree yesterday and the house looked so bare.
(if you look close you can see the Christmas tree on the back porch in these photos haha
and in the last one the wind blow the tree over haha)
heart valentine paper chain DIY
Eli and I decided to make Valentine's Day decorations :)
Saw this paper chain project and thought I'd give it a try!
It's a bit tricky for little ones (eli's 7 and it was difficult for him)
You have to hold 4 pieces of paper in place while stapling - I think it requires adult coordination. 
Valentine Paper Heart Chain DIY
You just need paper, scissors (or a cutter), and a stapler with a ton of staples ha! 
This would even be great for Christmas as garland on the tree! Need to remember that for next year! 
paper heart chains in window for valentines day
So we chained a bunch and hung them in our back window! Turned out really pretty! 
If you make some, send me the link I'd love to see yours!

Golden Birthday

When I was in 3rd grade, my best friend at the time Krysta Matheson taught me about golden birthdays. Your Gold Birthday is when your age is the same number as your birth day, for instance I'm turning 29 on the 29th! You only have one Golden Birthday! I'm pretty excited about the idea of a Golden Birthday. I'm definitely make this a big thing when I have kiddos, I've already told Eli about it. He and I have the same Golden Birthday; we both were born on the 29th day (different months). 
So I pinned a bunch of my Golden Birthday inspiration
To see my Golden Birthday board on Pinterest just click here
If you have any Golden Birthday stories or ideas please leave em in the comments! :)
