Infant Flapper Style Hat

I LOVE Grace Violet. When I first start my blog a few years ago (I believe in 2007), I remember Grace Violet was one of the first crafty blogs out there. I was so inspired by her, and still am today. She dabbles in a little bit of this and a little bit of that...I LOVE it!
I came across her adorable little flapper style hat. I've GOT to make one of these! It seems pretty easy..(I'm crossing my fingers at least!).
You can find this adorable tutorial HERE.

Adorable Tulle Headband

I have excess scraps of tulle lying around my craft room. I find myself wadding them up and throwing them away.
I wish I would have come across this post from Aubrey Wants a little sooner! Isn't it adorable?
I will now be saving those little tulle scraps!

Long Distance Date With Grandma

I am in LOVE with the "Long distance date" idea from "How Does She".

What a sweet way to let your children interact with Grandparents. We live all the way in North Pole, Alaska while the rest of our family members live in Utah. Although the miles are many, we feel fortunate to have ACN phones in which we can communicate and see them. Hopefully we'll be able to see them in person soon. But in the meantime, I think this is a great idea!
