My little Charmers

Ahhh…why does it always seem there are just never enough hours in the day, week, month, or even year? Maybe I just don’t maximize the hours I do have. Although I can’t imagine a life lived completely maximizing time. Now that was completely depressing, and we should have none of that on this blog! As St. Patrick’s Day approaches Silly Whim’s St. Patty’s Day dance was this evening. Silly Whim’s is always very excited about these types of functions and truth be told she has had a lot going on over the past month! We can’t forget about Bubba though and even though he is not in school yet he loves attending functions at his soon-to-be school! While he is my little boy I can’t wait for him to enjoy school and friends and when he is 6 Boy Scouts with Daddy! Shhhh…don’t tell Daddy though he told me he wanted me to do it with him…I just think he sees just how awesome Girls Scouts is *smiles*. So, in preparations for the dance tonight and St. Patty’s Day in general I purchased some green t’s for Bubba and Stinky Face.

Since Stinky Face didn’t go to the dance I focused on just Bubba’s for the time being. I have used this technique before and it’s no new concept freezer paper stencils. I drew out the shape of a tie.

Then I cut it out. Like so…

Next I used my Quickutz die cutter and my shamrock die and cut several out of the freezer paper.

I then positioned the tie how I wanted it, then ironed it on. Then I positioned the shamrocks around like I wanted them and ironed them on. What I had at this point looked like this.

Next I painted the tie with white fabric paint. I ended up doing like 3 coats to get it where I wanted it.

Here is Bubby’s completed shirt. I ended up adding a lil’shamrock to the little pocked. I think it added a little extra touch!

Here is our goofy Bubba modeling for us!

And we can’t forget his stellar sista Silly Whim feeling very special that her 16 year old sister did her hair for her! Ahhh…siblings at their best! We really have for take this moment in, because wait…yes just like that it is gone again!

Thanks for allowing me to share if you stuck around. If I find the time in between the insane cookie booths this weekend I am hoping to get to Stinky Faces too. Of course once I do I will share that one as well.

Happy Blogging!
