Balloon Doorway

 I came up with this one all by myself! Okay, it was a little bit from Pinterest, but I adapted it a lot. (http://www.bakersfieldmom.com/2012/09/birthday-balloon-avalanche/) I just stole a stick from the garage, blew up the balloons, wrote nice notes on them, and cut different lengths of ribbon. I tied the ribbon to the stick and then the balloons. It is all light enough that it stuck to the frame with packing tape. Happy Valentine’s Day, Tom!

 Spencer, Tom, and I ran through the balloons so many times that they did eventually fall down. It was an easy and fun project, though!

Pillow Beds

For Christmas, the Bays make homemade gifts for one person in the family. I chose Brynn’s name and Spencer chose Claire’s name. So I decided to make them both pillow beds! I used this tutorial: http://creativeladyofthehouse.wordpress.com/2012/05/03/pillow-beds/

I think they turned out great! I was excited.

Maybe someday I’ll make Spencer one.
