Long time, no see!

Hey friends!
It's been a while. 2011 has been pretty crazy at school and we've had busy weekends. So the blog has sort of been at the back of our minds!  BUT, I've been wanting to share some of the projects and crafts I've created over the last month or so. Maybe soon I'll post the instructions to some of the crafts too!

I'm a little late about adding these first few but hey, take the idea and run with it...
Maybe heart shaped crayons for Valentine's Day?!?!
I used all of our broken pieces from the classroom and remelted them and poured them into candy molds!

Cutie-Crafty Ornaments made with a styrofoam ball, paper, confetti and straight pins!

The kids designed their own paper for the presents for their parents!
(that's a tongue-twister!)

This craft is something I've seen in magazines and at craft shows.  It was one of those things that I saw and thought, "...How cool! I bet I could make that!"  So I made this one for a Christmas present for my Mom.

And of course our Lola Girl has to make an appearance whenever the camera comes out :)

Appliqued shirts! I just can't get enough of these! They are SO easy and fun!

Magnet Clothespins!
Another fun and easy project!

Ruffle Card
Bobby gave me a few craft magazines in my stocking. I found this card idea in one of those magazines! I made this one for my Grandma's birthday!

I loved that one SO much that I decided to make this one for a Baby Shower card :)

Well that's my little crafty catch up!
Thanks for reading!

Blog Anniversary!

Happy Anniversary to The Details!!!
One year ago today we started our blog with {this post} We have really enjoyed chronicling all of our adventures and sharing them with you! To celebrate this special milestone, we took a look back at the last year and chose a favorite picture (or 2) from each month* to serve as a time line of 2010. Some of the pics are oldies-but-goodies and some are making their debut!
* we couldn't find any pictures from January. oops. 












 Thanks for stickin' with us! We're looking forward to sharing the adventures that have yet to come!

New Years in The Big Easy

It's 2011!!! WOW!
Earlier this year we visited our friends Jase and Lindsey in Alabama for the Gator Game. That trip ended up being the beginning of a pretty bad football season but the beginning of a fun friendship! That weekend we all decided to make plans to go somewhere really fun for New Years together. After discussing a few different places, we ended up deciding on spending the New Year in New Orleans!
Instead of putting allllll my pics up individually, I put them all in a slideshow for easy viewing! But a few highlights to check out are:
- Cafe Du Monde and the awesome Beignets
- Our Beautiful Hotel, Hotel St. Marie, which was not even a block from Bourbon St.!
- Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's house!
- The House of the Rising Sun
- The Winter Wonderland Walkway at the Roosevelt Hotel where we ate dinner on New Year's Eve!
- The Saint Louis Cathedral at night
- The many Street Performers
