A place for the headbands and hairbows

FYI: this blog has now been optimized for viewing on your smartphone!

This morning, I brought Jonah to his 2nd day of "school".  He attends a mothers-day-out program once a week, and is incredibly proud that he has his Very Own School.

Here they are, all four with their backpacks on the morning of his first day (last week):

(Someone always must be crying in these pictures, yes?  The real question is, how can a person insist on being in the "center" of a four-person picture?  Thoughts to ponder.)

Today, with the entire morning to myself, I decided to make some sense of all of mine and Lavella's hair accessories.

First, I took an empty rolled oats cylinder and some fabric.

Then, using spray adhesive and hot glue, I did this.

Next, I tied a wide ribbon to a D-ring and hung it from the bathroom wall.

I have a lot of hairbows, and I am not ashamed.

Lavella, on the other hand, is all about the headbands.

For her, the most important step in getting dressed in the morning is to choose The Perfect Headband.  Which generally means the pink rose one. Obviously.

She also has a number of hairbows, so I made her a ribbon organizer as well.

Now to make a headband holder for myself!

I make gift wrappers out of all those containers the same way! I always thought that would be a good fundraiser for a kid to work on all year, then sell before a holiday to people who hate to wrap presents.
