I made these two hair ‘accessories’ this weekend to perhaps wear to Jem’s grad ball on Friday night. But I’m unsure if I even like them or which one I want to wear.

This is the headband with pinkish/cream coloured freshwater pearls

And this is the clip with silk ribbon and brown/purpleish freshwater pearls

So what do we think? Ditch them and buy something pretty, or one above the other?  The colour of the clip is the same as the trimmings of the dress and the headband is the same colour as the main body of the dress.

Eeep… I just don’t know.

I also made these little flowers to go on my shoes, they will spruce them up to formal standard I hope.

I haven’t been to anything this formal since my high school formal about 5 or 6 years ago. And in that time I’ve had 2 children so I’m not too hopeful that I will look exactly the same as I did last time :) But at least I’m giving it a go… with belly sucking in undies!

Ok off the track from belly suckers, we went to my best friend’s little girls birthday today. What a day for a 1st birthday party…


Our driveway has looked like this all week, which is very unusual and has only happened a couple of times in the last 4 years. If you look closely you’ll see hail.

Here’s what I made for the little cherub anyway,

Not a great photo but I was pushed for time and still had to wrap them up. They’ll look so pretty up on her wall!

I’m hoping the weather will be fine by Friday, otherwise we’ll have to stand out in the cold and wind to watch Jem march. I’ll still be excited to watch him get his badge, he’s done so well and we’re really proud of him! Can’t wait!!

if it's really formal, I'd go with the clip! I really love the first one too, it's so cool! you could wear that to a wedding or just any day I think :)

also, I really like the prints! great idea

I also like the clip best, especially because it goes so well with the shoe clips, it will complete an outfit. Enjoy the occasion.
