fof & week in hair

sorry i've been so absent, it's been super busy again at work, it's budget time so everyone is scrambling to get all that done.  have lots to show you so here we go.

fos for the week

the first 3 hats were a special order referred from a friend they turned out so super cute, can't wait to see what they look like on the cuties.
this is the daughter's hat

this is the neice's hat, it has a little bill on it, i definitely need to make more!

this is the momma hat :)

this set of two hats is a request from a friend for a baby shower

love the brown/ivory flower with the pink hat

cute little ivory bear hat with a hot pink sparkle flower with blue button center

here they are together, aren't they just adorable?!?!?

week in hair
monday was the only day q wanted something other than a headband


wednesday, hopper told me, "i look so cute!"  yes, my little pumpkin, you sure are!

thursday, look at that crazy face on hopp!  :o)


math game fun night, last night q's school had a little family fun night but i just took her so it could be me & her time.  she loved it but i do have to say that some of it was far too advanced for a little kindergartener but she tried really hard on what she didn't know.  i was so proud of her.
this was the penny flip game where you count how many times it lands on heads & how many time on tails.  she flipped 10 pennies & got even numbered heads/tails.

this was not easy, even for me!  you put the shapes in the main shape to make whatever animal.  with of help from the instructor she got it done.  :)

this was math war, you flip a card over & add the two, whoever guesses the right # first gets the cards.  let me just say this boy was a GREAT sport!  he was so patient & sweet & waited for her to get the #s added up.  he gave her a few of them.  :o)

this was the computer math station.  she was having a blast & so we jotted down the addresses, if you would like the free math game web sites let me know, i will give them to you.  i think this was her fave one.

banana shorts!  ok a little back story.  we do an annual presentation every year where they try to get new clients to sign up for an annual contract for tv commercial sales.  our manager was saying you need to work on your database for clients you want to invite this weekend, blah blah blah, & then he says, "even if you need to put on your banana shorts at home" we lost it, that was about 2-3 yrs ago!  we have been trying to find banana boxers or some type of banana shorts then i thought of this idea, duh!!!  so we got "banana shorts" a birthday cake....
how freakin' hilarious is that!!!!
i was a bit of a loss as to what was wrong with the lady that i ordered the cake from.  when i told her what i wanted (over the phone) & was giggling about it, she never once laughed or anything!  i couldn't figure out why she had no sense of humor, how could someone ask for banana shorts & you not even crack a grin, you can hear that in someone's voice on the phone!  anywho, i hope you all have a great weekend & don't forget to head to tami's amis for all the great finished stuffs.  :)

Cute hats, cute banana story. I cracked a smile, can't figure out what she was so sober about!

thanks ck, i know, she was weird!!! oh well, i guess she was immune to my charms. ;o)

Claudia said...

Sure, it's always about work. ;)

Cute hats ... so glad that orders are picking up for you, means you can get me a super-duper Christmas present. ;) (Just kidding!)

That's cool that Q did her best with the math stuff; there'll be time for her to learn all that.

thanks claudia, you know you are on my list of gifts even if they are scarves or whatever. :)

pinkundine said...

Aw, lots of cute hats. I love the plaits on the first one :)

stephanni :] said...

thanks pink, i had to look up plaits. :) all the colors match her coat. i was excited to see she had touches of aqua in her coat so i added it in the flower.

Underground Crafter said...

Love the hats!

Kathleen said...

ajskldfj The banana shorts cake and story are totally making my evening, so funny---I can't believe the person you ordered the cake from didn't think so! Maybe they've been burned too many times by rabid fans of Cake Wrecks ordering purposely weird/mispelled cakes or something? ;)

Your hats are all amazing, too---especially that first one! The layered flower is gorgeous!

stephanni :] said...

i hope everyone is doing good & i hope to post sometime today. :)
