Twirl and Take a Bow Link Party and FEATURES

All Alone

Twirl and Take a Bow Link Party

I live in a house full of boys.
I. am. all. alone.
But my boys are young enough that sometimes they still like to do crafty things with me….making frog scarves, framing old t-shirts, or even making signs for their bedroom doors with purple glitter.
So I asked Monkey for some help picking the features for today's party.
He whined. He hemmed. He hawed.  And after haphazardly pointing to about 50 links he walked away. Then I moved on to recruiting helper number 2…my husband. Me: Hey, will you help me pick the features this week. Just look at the links and tell me which ones pop out to you. I'll do the rest. Him {leaning in}: OK.
After picking 3, he grew really quiet.
Me: Is this like when I ask you to go shopping with me? Him: Um, yeah. Can I go now? And then there is the 7 year old. He couldn't sleep. Said he forgot how.
I let him get under the blanket with me and he thoughtfully picked out some links that he liked. He took a painfully long time. I fear it was just a ploy to stay up and snuggle with mommy. 
                                 Like I said…in this house… I am all alone.
It’s OK though, because you are all here now! And really, it’s more fun with just the girls, isn't it!?! {PS…if there are any guy bloggers here…yay! I love that you joined too}.
     

This Weeks Top {Craft} Picks 

{from me…not the boys}

{One} This bicycle transfer is fabulous!I would be making t-shirts for my boys, just like this one from Leslie at The Seasoned Homemaker all the time if I had a silhouette! Leslie made it look so simple! {Two} I made my duvet cover a couple years ago, so I love to see how other people make them too. This one from Corey at Tiny Side Kick looks so comfortable and that tiny fake sleeper is adorable! {Three} Wooden Spoons are beautiful and rustic on their own, but these painted handles done by Madalyn at Home Hearted make me smile. It is such a simple touch that adds so much character.
{Four} These felt envelopes from, Look What Mom Found, are so sweet! Makes me wish I had little girls to help me make them and then we could give special treats to all their friends. At least I can still get my 5 year old to push the pedal on my sewing machine...that is always fun! {Five} Rhonda from Feet Grounded on the Earth, made these reusable produce bags for the grocery store and I am in love.  I have been contemplating how to make these (using old t-shirts), but didn't know how the cashier would ring them out without touching my food.  These are perfection, because they are semi-see-through! {Six} How about a little pom pom garland from Mary Beth from Cupcakes and Crinoline? It is adorable for Valentine's Day or even to make it in different colors for a shower or birthday! Plus she has a video tutorial that was fantastic!
