Every so often, as they come, I like to take mental notes of ‘things I never expected with having a baby.’ And today, added to the list was: BUSY, NO REST WEEKENDS.
I’m starting to feel like I’m in a strange SCI-FI flick, where my present and future self are somehow altering my past, including my memories. Like what it felt like to sleep in uninterrupted. How my couch felt like when it was expertly molding itself to my back. What soft lazy slippers sounded like against clean, hardwood floors. And how a hot cup of tea could rest in my hands with the same reverence of a tiny newborn puppy while staying put so fine and so warm.
But alas! I must not think of such frivolities anymore! As there are things to do, and things to accomplish! And no matter how busy our weekend has been, look what we managed to create.
Homemade Easter flowers.
Made in: Recycled baby food jars. With: Easter colored beads, pom poms, feathers, modeling clay, pipe cleaners, gems and washi tape.
To beautify the jars, I took pink and white polka dotted washi tape and secured it around the top.
We then took pink and yellow modeling clay (it is very soft and spongy) and smoothed it into the bottom of the jar. Added some pom poms and gems on top.
Cut up some pipe cleaners into different lengths, stuck them into the clay and fed beads through them. On one, we decided to stick in some pretty feathers.
Oh, and can’t forget Els’ favorite part. Little Easter chicks.
And there she is. In of course, her new pink bathing suit.
PS. *Always supervise your toddlers/kids when playing with beads and glass jars. Plastic cups are also a good alternative.*
