A friend of mine is having a masquerade birthday party so I decided to make my mask.

DIY Hair Accessories

My sister and I have recently joined Pinterest, which is thoroughly addicting. Well the DIY section has tons of ideas and we found one that we liked along with an idea we came up with on our own.

What you will need:

  • ribbon
  • buttons
  • plastic headbands
  • decorative ribbons or chains – if you want
  • elastic hair ties
  • bobby pins
  • a hot glue gun – lots of extra glue sticks

First is our idea – buttons on headbands and bobby pins.

Then we made bows and even put one on a headband.

The last idea was one we got off of Pinterest. Make your own headbands. Although the big fat one was a five strand braid that my sister made.

All of the stuff is pretty easy and fun to make and cute to wear. Be careful when using the hot glue gun. It’s called hot for a reason.

Wrapping Presents

Christmas isn’t my favorite holiday, but I love wrapping presents. I like to make sure the corners are perfect and I like the challenge of wrapping odd shapes. I also really enjoy using tape. One day, I will wrap a resent entirely in duct tape, then wrap it in wrapping paper, just to piss the receiver off. It would be hilarious.

Anyway, these are the presents I have so far. My sister has two, two are for Joe’s mom, two are for Joe, one for my dad, the gold bag is for Mary (Joe’s sister), one is for Chris (Joe’s sister’s boyfriend), and one for Joe from Lily. I still have to find something for my mom. Probably one big thing and one little thing because her birthday is the day after Christmas. And I am ordering something for Joe and my dad on Friday. Then all that’s left is something else small for Mary.

You will notice that there are no bows or ribbons on any of these presents. Well, I don’t know where I’m going to store them until we put our tree up and I don’t want any of the frilly bits to get ruined so I haven’t put it on yet. I’ll post another picture when that time comes in a few more weeks.
