poor baby sharp tooth

okay guys I wanted to catch you up on where I've been. For one thing I have had a nasty horrible cold.  it's gone through it ben, max, me, and shelby. That's number 1 number 2 Max broke his front top tooth in half diagonally the other night when he slipped in the tub. He chipped the other front one too just not as bad and he knocked both back up a bit into the gums. so we had to travel to Sioux Falls for an emergency dental visit in the morning and they filed it down that wasn't quite so sharp and it's really close to the nerve so if it keeps bugging him in a few weeks they will have to put him  under and cap it.  but if not I
he will just have a crooked tooth. 

it has just been one of those weeks not only is everyone sick plus the emergency visit to the pediatric dentist but I went to run two quick errands the other day hit a pothole flat tire.. dead phone and just one thing after the other! So needless to say this mama is off to nap. happy Friday

christma diy

This weekend me and the girls w a need to do some Christmas diys. We started with these.  These are dollar tree diys. We bought foam cones and cut them to different tight. Then we took pushpins we did silver gold and one tree we did silver and gold and we push them in overlapping them to cover all the styrofoam and to hold each other and if there were ones that wouldn't stick and good I'd put a tiny dot of hot glue underneath to make sure that they were secure. I love how these came out! it took about a pack and a half of push pins for the largest tree.

 then we made a few fun little snow terrariums.
 I took old candle jars and glued flat glass marbles to them for a bit fancier candle holders. 

this was the most expensive one the jar with the phone $4.00 at Walmart.  For the little trees and animals if we didn't have them on hand we went to Menards they had the biggest selection and reasonable prices it was about $2 per package trees and $1 to $2 per animal
 just whenever already on the horse and we got a glass container and a candlestick from the Dollar Tree and glue them together with E 6000
 we already on to this container the little house was from the Dollar Tree the raccoons in the garbage cans were from Menards and we use Epsom salt for all the snow.

I got a few more foam cones from the Dollar Tree and I had these beads that I got years ago for Christmas at the Dollar Tree I took them and hot glued them around the cones just for something a little shiny

I have this little window type area between the kitchen and the living room and on one side of it I have the stockings hanging and I decided to decorate inside the little window I hung snowflakes and ornaments on a fishing line and then I put my little cone and a couple came beholder and on the other side (the living room side )is where our stockings are hanging

I hope you enjoy it and if you try any of these let me know.

my smash books flip through (video)

I thought I would share what I have been up to.  (If you want to see what 90% of my day is go to the great eggnog fit of 2014 on my channel) when not having a teething drama queen throwing sippy cups at me and thrasking on the ground this is one of the things I have been working on.  Sorry I am not awesome I didn't add music or affects just  a quick flip through. double click on the videos to get the full screen view

This one I saw a Seattle stamp in and decided it should hold all the letters and cards from when I got sent away  by my evil parents moved away from my home town in washington. I dug through my boxes and found letters and cards from my dad grandma and frIend who have passed away it was really special.

this one is a diy one I made from a disc bound system. I love it because I can punch and add what ever I want, I can change the cover when ever I want and I can move pages to where ever I want.
I hopened you enjoy it this projet has been lotso fun. Have a great day guys.
