Only a Matter of Time

Really, with two little girls- one who is the girliest of girly girls, it was only a matter of time before I started making hair-bows. Anna started the whole thing, of course. We have a couple of tiny bows left over from when Ellery was a baby. Anna asks to wear them all the time. Finally, I got tired of her asking, dug into my ribbon box, and made one big girls sized bow (the white one).
Well, they're kind of addicting. We're up to five now. I've been to the store to buy more ribbon. It's to the point that yesterday morning I dressed Anna for school, decided she needed some bows to match and made them before the school bus came.
I see many more bows in our future.
Really, how adorable is that? I found all my hair-bow making tutorials here.

In other hair-related news- it seems Samuel is the most-likely to have inherited the coarse, thick, curly, crazy hair that runs in my family.
His hair is getting coarser- it's already way coarser than either of the girl's. And as it gets longer, he's getting these adorable little curls. I love it, of course.

While I am not into big frou-frou bows, I do wish the girls would keep something pretty and simple in their hair. I especially wished it when they had boy haircuts...

Oh no. Now that I've seen these, I WANT TO MAKE BOWS for Nichole. How could you? Yet another thing to add to my never ending craft list.
Samuel can match my curly blondies.

Something A Little Different

If you follow me on Instagram, you already know that for my birthday this week, I got a weaving loom of my very own. Specifically, a 15" Cricket Loom. There was some major happy dancing involved.

Feeling a little nervous. #cricketloom #happybirthdaytome A photo posted by trinasdoings (@trinasdoings) on Jul 28, 2016 at 7:06am PDT

Now what do I do with it? #cricketloom #happybirthdaytome A photo posted by trinasdoings (@trinasdoings) on Jul 28, 2016 at 7:41am PDT

WooHoo! Thank goodness for the many YouTube videos which got me here! A photo posted by trinasdoings (@trinasdoings) on Jul 28, 2016 at 10:39am PDT
I spent all morning on my birthday watching YouTube instructional videos, putting it together, getting it warped, and starting my very first handwoven scarf using bits and pieces of yarn leftover from other projects.

Today I finished it.

Sure, it's got some issues. The edges are a bit wonky. The fringe went all fuzzy when I washed it. But, I love it. I love how thin and drap…

Ellery's Baptism and the First Day of School

Exciting times around our household in the past week. This Saturday, Ellery was baptized.

Almost time to go! #baptismday #eightisgreat A photo posted by trinasdoings (@trinasdoings) on Sep 3, 2016 at 9:10am PDT

And after. It took two tries-her toe popped up. #baptismday #eightisgreat #familiesareforever A photo posted by trinasdoings (@trinasdoings) on Sep 3, 2016 at 1:03pm PDT

She was so happy and excited. It was a great day.

And then, today, the kids finally started school! Hallelujah!

The local school district went back to school like two and a half weeks ago. We've all been anxiously waiting for their charter school to start.

First grade for this guy and an empty house for me. Every summer I let his hair grow wild so that I can enjoy his curls. I was all ready to give him his standard back to school haircut until we went to meet his teacher. She went into raptures over his curls. So, they stayed. We'll see how long they last now that he has to face a squirt bottle and a bru…

Christmas Gifts #1

Most of October, November and December were consumed by secret Christmas craft projects. It's such a relief to finally be able to blog and Instagram about them without worry. It's going to take a couple of blog posts to get through them all.

 First up, my woven projects. I made two scarves- one for my father-in-law's Christmas Eve birthday. Since he bought me my Cricket Loom for my birthday, it was only fitting I weave him something for his birthday.

The second was a super soft and hopefully super classy plaid scarf for my sister-in-law. It was really difficult to pry this one away from Ellery after our little photo shoot. The girl definitely has an appreciation for my handcrafts- especially the soft and cozy ones.
