I know…the rest of you are so sad. Here’s the Twirling Betty info in case you want to go get one now!
Yes, that is a true story. They really were taking turns sticking their fingers in the box fan to stop it.
I have wanted one of these since I first saw them. Oh the ideas swirling around in my head for ways to use it. I would like to predict that these will be the HOT item for Christmas cards this year. If you are a photographer you NEED one of these for your family sessions, weddings, newborns session…you just NEED one. If you aren’t a photographer, well you need one too. I think this would be fun gift for preteen and teen girls too! My friend Rachel is the original genius behind them and I was GIDDY when mine arrived in the mail. I am sure you’ve seen them all over online, theKnot magazine and Bust magazine. Sweet Rachel is giving one away on my blog today. Happy dance.

There are a million things I should be doing instead of making notepads. I have my last SnapShop of the year this weekend and a bunch of fun things coming out on the blog starting next Friday. My to do list is getting so out of control that I can’t fit it in my MomAgenda, so I decided I needed a new list…one I could mark on and throw away. So instead of marking things off my ‘to do’ list I decided to make a cute one.
Supplies: Graph paper, glue, masking tape (the cuter the better), exacto knife, scissors, rub on stickers, clothepins
Step 1: Cut your paper to the size you want the list. Graph paper makes it easy because you just cut on the lines…
Step 2: Tap down paper so you have one end that is level
Step 3: Clamp paper using clothes pins
Step 4: Apply a thin amount of glue all over the edge
Step 5: Using an exacto knife trim any edges that stick out
Step 6: Wrap the end with masking tape, folding and cutting it so it is neat…kind of like wrapping the end of a present
Step 7: Apply your rub on stickers
My ironing board became my desk….which either means I am trying to do too much at one time or that if my computer processes pictures SO SLOW that I can iron a dress while I am waiting – I need a new computer. Steve Jobs…are you reading? Please send me a new laptop pronto.
Maybe if I stopped making cute ‘to do’ lists I could clear off the kitchen table so my son could eat in a chair instead of on the floor.
But he’d just drop cheerios on the floor and then I’d have to clear the table and sweep the floor. I’ll stick with 5 minute diy projects.
