366 days of photos week 7

so it was a week of snow, valentine's & some crazy old lady yarn shenanigans!!!!
i did miss a day or two but i have lots of valentine pics to make up for it...

day 43: sun 2/12/12
we got snow!  it didn't last but maybe until about 10ish the next morning.  but i truly love snow, just don't like the ice that occasionally comes with it.  most texans have NO idea how to drive in it!  i'm not too bad, i know when you should & should accelerate.  it's crazy that some people drive normal speed when it's like this...

boy staches, the girls modeled all the favors to make sure i had the holes in the right spot.  the first one, modeled by hopp was too high, to make them look more realistic & in better placement they needed to have the hole at the bottom.

crazy q made a funny face with this one....

see how cute hopp's showed up.  all the lips & staches were glittery.  it was so much fun!  i cut ALL of them out by hand!!!  the lips weren't bad but the mustaches were the worse.  all in all, this was pretty easy to do.  :)

day 44:  mon 2/13/12
getting the finishing touches on the valentine suckers.  i had to print some sticky labels to put on the bottom who they were from so the suckers wouldn't slip out of the lip/stache.  they were made from glitter foam sticker sheets so after they were done with the suckers they could use them as stickers. :o)

here are the silver staches.  :)

day 45: tues 2/14/12
this was my valentine box for work.  isn't it so cute?!?  i love zombies & found this super cute zombie love art. 
my co-workers are so lucky to have me!  i made these for EVERYONE at work.  i made a total of about 62 of them.  i cut slits on each side of the hamsters little hand & put the exact sucker (luckily found them at the dollar tree) so it looked like he was holding the real sucker.  :)  it was so cute, forgot to take a pic of the finished product.

day 46: wed 2/15/12 no pic today...

day 47: thurs 2/16/12

ok, so i'm all for self expression... jess & i went to hobb lobb after picking her up from work & she whispers, "mom, go to the next aisle!"  so i look over & there is this super cute-but-very-crazy lady in the next aisle.  she was picking her yarn out for a project.  she was talking to herself the ENTIRE time!  that's where the crazy came in.  the picture doesn't show the detail i wish it did, jess took the pic, she is better at making it look like she is texting instead of taking a pic.  ;)  her coat was completely handmade either crochet or knit but the craziest part was it was fuzzy at the joined color patches.  i'm talking fun fur yarn fuzzy.  it had really long fuzziness & then the hat was patchwork as well with the fuzzy joined color changes & then she had this lovely (& i really mean hideous) looking daisy on the hat.  omg, it was the highlight of our trip.  i hope i can be the crazy yarn lady one day!!!!  :o)  jess threatened me if i ever acted like her she would disown me.  i highly doubt that!  she loves me toooooo much!!! 

this is a cluster shot of all the box tops we turned in the next day.  we sent in a total of 95 box tops!!!!!  we sent in 75 the first semester so q has turned in 170 for the year so far!!!  :o)  i'm thinking there will be other kids that sent in more but i was shocked how many we had!

days 48 & 49: fri 2/17 & sat 2/18 no pics these days either, not for sure why!  i always take pics on the weekends!  i will have more for you next week.  got lots of pics of me & q's day together.  :)
