{paper bag crowns}
made these sweet little crowns with the kids and their friend the other day…
so easy. and so sweet.

the simple steps...
i just used left over grocery store paper bags.
cut them in the shape of a crown (or have the kids cut it out)
have them spread glue on with paint brushes and then sprinkle glitter. (or dump if you're my kids)
then have them crumple up tiny tissue balls (start with a small square)
and glue them to the bottom.
punch four holes in the ends and lace yarn through and tie to secure.
they loved this project.  it was simple enough that it kept their attention.

dreaming of glamping…
{a re-post of willa's glampout.  because something's got to make me believe warm weather will return.  we will see grass again.  the deep freeze has been rough. looking forward to the renewal of spring.  just like God's promises. and well… a little glamping.}

ever since i can remember i have had this dream of having a community of friends.  where we raise babies together.  we have dinners and sleepovers.  we laugh and we cry together.  we love each other's children like our own.  we have trust and grow together.  well... although life is busy and seems at times to be passing by ever too quickly... for willa's birthday i wanted to do something that fulfilled part of that dream.  we decided on a "glamping" party (glamourous camping)... i envisioned everyone (the mamas and daughters~ both willa's friends and mine) around the fire together singing songs, sharing stories.  cuddling up in one big tent together.  and it. was. perfect.  all that i had imagined & dreamt of.  it was more than a birthday party... it was a sweet memory... a moment in time where we stopped, slowed down, and just enjoyed each others company.  it wasn't just our backyard... it was if we had picked up and been put down somewhere beautiful and magical.
here are all the details...
i had been visiting every salvation army, goodwill, every thrift store in a 50 mile radius for about 6 months collecting knit & crochet blankets... 
oh this tent... i had looked and looked and settled on the huge tent from belgium.  it was perfect. and fit 9 mamas and 9 little girls. ~ all on air beds.

we made pizza pies in the fire...
  tomato soup and asparagus soup...
i had also been collecting vintage paper plate holders.
oh the s'mores bar.
each mama & daughter got a dream catcher necklace...
someone else loved the party...

oh friends, it was fabulous... still makes my heart sing...
and most importantly.  she. loved. her. party.
& i love her more than words.
