Boo Boo Bunny


A few years ago I made Boo Boo Bears (Here) for all the kiddo's. In fact, I still have a couple in the freezer. Greg would never admit, but I've even seen him use the bear a time or two.

I needed to make some more, but this time I changed it up a little.




That's right. Boo Boo Bunnies.

Just like the bears, they're filled with rice and can either be heated in the microwave for a minute or kept in the freezer to use instead of an ice pack.




The day I decided to do this, I searched through the house to find shapes to use as a pattern.




I appliqued the tail on and sewed the ears together first and then sewed the body leaving a space on the bottom to turn and fill with rice.




I used white flannel to make it extra soft.




I didn't use any rice in the ears so they would be floppy.




Ready and waiting for any boo-boo's the little ones (or Greg) might have.

Super Simple Bottle Cap Bracelets


I'm really trying to get my craft room cleaned up and organized. It's a never ending job and I'll probably end up doing what I always do, eventually just giving up.

Here's another reason this massive clean up never gets done. I find things that I bought to do and then it got lost in the piles on the table up there. I find it and then get absorbed in working on it, instead of cleaning. See why this job is never ending?




Okay, so that whole long drawn out story was about making these bracelets.

I bought everything I needed to make these at Hobby Lobby last summer and had intended for Jordyn and I to make them one day when she was here. Then I forgot about them.




These little bracelets were all in a package and in the clearance aisle.




I bought the bracelets and remembered I had the bottle caps and stickers left from another project. I mod-podged the stickers to the cap and then added Dimensional Magic.




I was worried about a magnet holding to the washer, but when they say those magnets are "super strong", they're not kidding! 




Not counting the Dimensional Magic drying time, all of these bracelets only take a few minutes to make. So simple to do and with the magnet, you can mix and match them any way you want.




Have an awesome Monday!

Aloha Moolah Bank


We're planning a trip to Hawaii next year for our 40th wedding anniversary. I wanted a place where I could throw all my spare change and $5.00 and $1.00 bills from my purse each week for the trip.




I didn't want any plain ol' bank or even an empty box or coffee container. I wanted a special place to remind me of what I was saving for. 
Hence, my Aloha Moolah Shadow Box Bank.




I bought the shadow box frame and had Greg drill me a slot in the top. I was so excited to do this, I kept forgetting to take pictures, which is why I don't have a photo of the finished slot.

He actually drilled the holes to make a line and then we sanded it all smooth.




While he was busy sanding, I took the back cover and mod podged scrapbook paper to the inside.




That's really all there was to it. I put the frame back together and used a funnel to add sand to the bottom.







Aloha!
