Now that classes are about to end, I have already ordered gifts for my daughter’s teachers. I only need to come up with creative packaging and then I saw this:
This is going to be so cute with a ribbon and gift tag on top. This uses felt paper but any paper would certainly do. I can’t wait to try doing this with my daughter.

One of my latest projects is a door name plate.
I made this with glow-in-the-dark polymer clay and some beads. I had a different output in mind but this came out nicer than I have planned. See this and more when you visit my online store, The Clay Craft Studio.
My mom has this habit of changing her phones like annually and my daughter happens to be a recipient of one of her hand-me-down units recently. It is a Sony touch-screen phone with all the works – wifi, games, music, etc. But what made my daughter really ecstatic is the phone’s capability to play music. She likes music. She likes singing and listening to songs. Her Dad loaded it up with music last night and she has been enjoying it. She is recovering from sickness and the music (and freedom to choose which to play) is making her feel better and entertained.
Speaking of which, I am adding music lessons as a possible activity for her this summer break. Someone is willing to gift her with a guitar, complete with spare superb Ernie Ball guitar strings in case we go for it. We need to decide soon so we can find a good training center and allot our budget and time properly.
When my daughter was very young not so many years ago, I loved collecting hair accessories to make her more beautiful. One of my many challenges though, was organizing those hair trinkets to make them visible to me (especially). I have assigned different boxes and a big, clear plastic jar where I put them all together. However, some still got lost and misplaced. Those that were stored in boxes were altogether forgotten.
We have graduated from collecting all sorts of hair trinkets since we prefer a shorter hair style for my daughter. We’re now limited to head bands, which also pose as a challenge to get organized. I will eventually share to you how I did it IF I finally figure out how to do it. For now, here is a clever idea of organizing bows, elastic headbands and clips. This bow holder idea is an absolute genius and it takes less time and money to accomplish.
A big thanks to Becca of theparopost.com for sharing this ingenious idea! Visit her blog for step-by-step instructions on how to do this project.
