Hey, you know how you just painted and decorated a whole slew of eggs this past weekend? You know how now you are trying to find clever ways to use hard-boiled eggs in every recipe? Ya, I know. I feel your pain. I can't really help you will the recipes but if you are looking for a way to recycle those egg cartons once the eggs are all used up, well here you go....
It's a flash back craft but a good one no less! Enjoy!
I've been getting some emails about craft projects seen on Pinterest. I guess a lot of them aren't link to the actual post which makes it hard for people to find the tutorials. Soooo, this week I'll be doing some flash back craft posts.
First up, drum roll please...... The Bunny Card! (First posted in 2012)
I made this, it's a fun little Easter card. If you want to make one for yourself here's the supplies you will need and a quick tutorial.
Tonight was Prom night. This night has been a year in the making, kinda. We found a dress last year on clearance, it was a $109 and marked down to just $22 buckaroos. Miss M wasn't even old enough to date at the time but she loved the color and it had potential and we knew that at some point in the future she'd have the opportunity to wear it.
The problem though, despite the great price, it was not modest.
Now, I know my idea of a modest dress is probably different from most. I've seen lots of girls wearin' similar things. Strapless dresses seem to be the norm but I've never been the norm and that's how I like it. I fully believe that the way you dress sends a message, good or bad, it sends a message. What message would my 16 year old daughter, with cut-out pieces on the side and a strapless dress be sending? Not the kind of message I want her to be sending, that's for sure.
She's beautiful, talented, smart, and amazing and she doesn't need to dress in less to get attention - period! And, if she did, is that attention the kind of attention she wants? I hope not.
Also, our church encourages our youth (and adults too) to dress modestly. We have a booklet that is for teenagers called For The Strength of Youth that talks about a lot of different areas on how to be exemplar youth in God's eyes. One of the topics is dress and appearance. I love that it breaks down the reasons why modesty is important and I agree whole heartily with what it says.
Any way.... my point. Here's the dress before (yes, she is wearing a shirt under it, you know, for modesty reasons)
The dress had lattice work up the sides that showed bare skin underneath - not so good.
