Little + Lovely

I have some great new and re-invented posts over on the new blog Little + Lovely.

Unfortunately blogger has since gotten rid of the old Followers button so if you are a current follower or subscriber and would like to continue to be at the new space head on over and either hit the follow button through Google+ or enter your email address under subscribe in the sidebar.

I would hate to not be able to connect with each of you anymore!

Baby Hats: Boy Edition

I now have a male baby hat model thanks to our little Griffin.  Ella did great modeling all my hats but now that she is getting older and becoming a little girl it was time for her to share some of the responsibility.  I have a feeling she doesn't mind and Griffin did great on his first job.

Someone doesn't want to be replaced.

Showing her baby brother how it's done.
She still has it!

 And some other super cute ones.

These hats were sewn out of old shirts.  You can find the tutorial here.

DIY: the simplest cake banner

I am not a baker and I certainly am not a food stylist but I did find a super easy and fast way to create a cake banner - out of desperation of course.  I waited till the last minute to bake and decorate a cake for a party and then scrambled to find something to make it "cute" (by my standards).

Using twine and post-it flags from the dollar section at Target I constructed a banner in literally 5 minutes.

I wrote my message on the flags first and then folded the flag in half over the twine using the natural sticky back to keep it in place.  I then tied the twine banner to two wood skewers (or straws) to finish it.

So easy!
And it looks cuter in person - cell phone pictures don't do it justice.
