Headbands and Hair Issues

So I've been making headbands for Miss Josie (my daughter). She's a headband girl. She's got gorgeous, wonderful, lovely thick blonde naturally very wavy hair. She hates it. I keep telling her one day she will thank the stars above for such lovely hair. As it is right now, she wishes she had thin, straight hair like all the "other" girls at school. In the meantime, she tames the mass of hair with headbands. There is a totally awesome (yes, I am a child of the 80's) tutorial on how to make a headband here: http://www.kcquilts.com/blog/2006/09/reversible-fabric-headband-tutorial.html. (For personal use only.) Tonight I made a bright colored one with polka dots on one side and fun bright daisies on the other.... and another with froggies. She likes froggies. :)

Oh man I was just like your daughter! I took my gorgeous, thick, wavy chesnut hair for granted and when I was 13 I chopped it all off and proceeded to spend the next 5 years dying it, drying it and frying it all to hell. Poor hair. I'm now trying to grow it out and treat it nicely ... well, except for the pink tips, but they don't count :P

what a pretty headband. My 7 yr old Annika used to wear headbands but doesn't like them anymore - headaches & sweaty beneath it! She has loads of hair! So we're down to fringe & plaits almost all the time!

Sit-upon Tutorial By Rachel Beyer

As a former Girl Scout, I have lots of fun camp memories. I remember learning to tie knots, set up camp and to cook over the campfire. An essential Girl Scout tradition is making a sit-upon. A sit-upon is a homemade waterproof cushion. They are easy to make and I remember using them every time we did any activity while sitting on the bare ground, which most often was damp or scattered with uncomfortable sticks and pebbles. A sit-upon is great for sitting around the campfire, your backyard, or even a sporting event.  There are lots of ways to make a sit-upon. When I was a Brownie Girl Scout, we made ours from old vinyl tablecloths and foam. But in a pinch, you can use a plastic garbage bag and a stack of old newspapers for padding. To revisit this simple craft project, I decided to use a roll of vintage vinyl wallpaper I found at a thrift store and some foam I bought at my local craft store. Essential Supplies: Waterproof Material (vinyl tablecloth, or other store-bought vinyl or

Fantastic Modern Rugs from AllModern.com and a $25 Giveaway

NOW CLOSED, thanks for entering!! Winter has arrived with a vengeance here! Along with the snow and cold outside are the wonderful things that get tracked indoors. Can you hear the sarcasm? I can nearly hear my poor floors screaming every time my husband drags in ice melt pellets, wet snow and mud. We have tile floors, wood laminate floors and also carpeting. Each one of my flooring types have rugs to help protect them... and as a bonus, rugs are just plain fun! We jokingly call the big 8x5 rug in the living room the "messy mat" because it catches all my husband's crumbs. Now is a great time to invest in new and modern rugs from AllM odern.com (part of the CSN Stores network) as it's an inexpensive way to change the entire feel of your home. What better time to change the look in your home than the dreary wintertime! It's like a mood pick-up for your home and family. I could really use some new runners and this one is beautiful: However, I like
