The hardest part was cutting the strips thin enough (but not too thin that they would break) to make the braids thin. Some of us had multiple tries at this. Other than that, this is a pretty easy project and requires just the tiniest bit of sewing. Here's Bee being super silly with her headband.
Here's a shot I just took this evening. I cut my hair again. Don't tell hubby, he hasn't said anything yet.
Here is the link to Smile and Wave where my sister saw the idea. I was not familiar with that blog, although I am glad my sister sent me over there. She has a cute blog with really nice photography. Recently, she shared the cutest simple holiday activity advent calendar. The girl who wrote that post though is a blogger that I follow, Cakies. She has the sweetest family and it just became one bigger. My sister and I have been 'creeping' her site to be the first to see when the baby came! Creeping is my sisters way of saying we are being super sneaky spies and are pretty much just stalkers... but in a non dangerous, non weird way. [Congratualtions Cakies and family on new baby Soul.]
Had to share this one too. Here's Bee with the envelope of coupons that she clipped for me for Christmas.... Because, "Mommy loves saving money!"
