"I am wearing Flip flops" tra la la la!

My girls kept begging me for a summer craft.
So this is what we decided to do!
It is pretty easy to do and dot too messy.
(Especially if you only have mom touch the glue.)

I let the girls pick out flowers and flip flops
and I happily only spent $7.50 on the supplies.

Little Darla dresses

I used my pattern making skills and designed summer dresses for my daughters.

What do you think?
I love the fabric and had to use a collection of them.
I love the roses and dots!

Now should I make the pattern available to you?
I am debating on if I should make a PDF pattern and put it up on my etsy shop.
What do you think? 

What's for dinner?

If youare like me I hate that question and I hate trying
to figure out what to put together with the things I have
on hand.  Especially when it is time to go to market to
fill the pantry and fridge.  I do find things sometimes.

I had on hand black beans, rice, flour tortillas and some beef.
Lucky me!
I decided to make my version of a Big City Burritio.
Which means a huge burrito filled with lots of yummy stuff.

Prepare rice
heat beans and season
cook meat (I had stew meat) and cut into tiny pieces
I added a seasoning package to the meat
some type of fajita or taco seasoning
heat your flour tortillas
On your tortilla
put 1/2 cup rice
1/4 cup beans
big spoon of meat
handful of cheese
here you could add sour cream, tomatoes, green onions, ect.
Roll up your burrito tucking the ends up and take a bite.

We all loved them even my kids.
I just had to convince a few to try the first bite then it was a winner!

Now you give it a try.

horse back riding

Picked up a paint brush today and did a little watercolor painting.
It is so nice and relaxing to paint.
I always feel really at peace with life when I am done.
Probably because you just can't paint and be grouchy
or irritable. It won't turn out.

I think I got close to capturing the feel of my daughters here.

Horse Birthday Design Board

I am getting excited for my daughters 9th birthday coming up in August.
We picked a horse theme with some Robert Kaufmann fabric called
Pony Club by Dan Norris, very cute with lots of colors to play with!
Inspired by the fun cupcakes out there I want to make grassy cupcakes
to put little toy horses on.  Then have a cake barn behind the grass.
We also want to have pink bandannas and yellow bandannas for the
boys and girls.

What do you think?

Here are some inspiration sites
horse bubbles and tiny horses
cupcakes, and more cupcakes
cupcake tower, pony cupcake
