Technical Difficulties :(

Well, I seem to be having issues uploading the wrong videos to YouTube. Wow. I have done it 3 times now. You think that I would of learned right? Well here is the right one!

Please know that I am not usually this red in the face NOR do I say AND and UMMM this much. I am not a fan of talking into the computer screen and being able to see myself. I feel like an idiot! And also know that I will love my baby even if she has enormous cheeks!!:)

I finally finished the next giveaway. (You will understand why I say "finally" after seeing the video. I wanted to hurry and post these before I head to the fabric store though.) Here is the newest giveaway! I have wanted to make some of these flowers for a long time now and finally got around to it. SOO... here is the giveaway! You can choose one of these cute shabby chic flowers. They look dang cute in your hair, your daughters hair, clipped to a shirt, purse, ANYTHING!! I am making a bunch more colorful ones tonight too :) SO, Without further a-DOOO..



You choose what type of back you want on your flower. Snap clip, alligator clip or a bar pin!

Giveaway ends tomorrow night :)Maybe I will add some more to choose from tomorrow (depending on if I can finish them!)

And if you have any advice on helping the transition into a big kid bed from a crib any easier, please let me know your secrets. Em has come into our room at 4am the past 2 nights and hops in our bed. I haven't attempted the napping in her new bed yet. I still like the caged in idea! Anyway, how long does it usually take for them to get used to it??

the hogan's said...

I seriously LOVE these! I have a few of them and wear them everyday. You are so crafty, I need lessons!

Love, The Arthurs said...

LOVE the clips! Enter me in the drawing! And I love that you made a youtube video to announce the winner! So cute! I had an appt. today too...no progress from last week. danget! As for names...I can't decide which I like best between Paisley and Aniston. I also really like Ainsley (even though that's not on your list!) And, hey, if you are just givin away crocheted headbands, send some my way! I want everyone to know she's a girl! ha!

Klorissa said...

Ok, I finally got around to entering your fun little giveaways. I better win some!!! Those flower clips are ADORABLE! You are the most creative person I know! Geesh! Also, I don't think there's ANYONE that's ever commented on your blog that deserves your giveaways more than ME! Hello...3 girls...plus myself! I'd definitely get the most use out of my winnings than anybody else:) No need to do a drawing next time...just pick me! I'm sure everyone else will understand:) Also, I want some crochet headbands. I'll purchase them if I have to. But I hope I'm lucky enough to win a bag:) Anyways, I'm coming up for Christmas and will be there for a couple weeks so we need to get together for sure this time. You skipped out last time!!! Oh...about the big girl bed thing...DO NOT have her nap in her crib and then sleep in her big girl bed. Consistency is key! Just decide to do it and stick with it. Even if it's torture, it's just not worth it! One last tip...I always put a gate up on the outside of the door so if she happens to open the door she still can't get out. Sometimes Kalli would fall asleep by the gate and I felt like a horrible mother but it all paid off in the end:)

Joslyn said...

put me in the drawing for the cute clips! :) If you're still looking to give away some crocheted headbands I will take a few! I voted for Paisely, I think Presley is cute too; there is also a little girl in nursery named Taislee and I thinnk that is cute!

Buckland Family said...

I totally want those clips.:) Way cute! Could we please have a craft day so I can steal all your dang cute ideas?

The Robisons said...

Those are adorable Tara. Did I somehow miss where you posted the winner of the cat litter bag. I will forever call them that by the way. :)

The Robisons said...

Oh crap! I just braved using the speakers in class to watch the video just to discover I LOST!

Laurel & Justin said...

Tara your clips are so cute, I am seriously entering all of your giveaways for all of your cute stuff!

Jenny said...

Cute! I love the hair things!! I would love to enter. Please count me in.
PS-You looked great in your video! I hope your little baby doesnt take too long to come! :)

Laurel & Justin said...

So I didn't watch your video until after I commented, thanks Tara!! Justin will love it! I'm way excited!

The Smiths said...

Oh these are SO cute! You are so talented and creative!

The Smiths said...

Oh, and about the bed thing. Consistency is the key. When she comes into your room take her back into her bed. Everytime! No matter how may times you have to go back and forth she will get the idea that she has to stay in her bed. It might take 2-3 days but she will learn if you are consistant. Also you can try some kind of reward/sticker sheet for every night she stays in her own bed. Just a thought.

THE BILLS FAMILY said...

Enter me in this drawing!! I better win dangit!! hehe

The Thatchers said...

um I want those!!

The Parks Fam said...

Tara you should make some boy stuff!! :) and Not dilated at all???! THats okay, I wasn't with Daxton at all then 2 days later at 40 weeks I was a 4, so it really means nothing. Im only to 1cm so im not too far behind you! Good luck! LOVE the video by the way... Do you always do your hair all cute everyday? I swear I am in a hat or a pony tail 24/7. You are so cute!

Jack, Michelle, and Logan said...

I love those! I've never entered into your drawings before, but I definitely want to win THIS one! SO cute! You are amazingly creative, Tara!

Jason, Mindi, Porter, and Ellery said...

Pick ME!!

The Brandt Family said...

Is it my turn to win?? Those sure are cute!

The Parks Fam said...

ohh I forgot...My advice on the new bed thing, KEEP THEM IN THE CRIB! :) Dax has nights where he will come out of bed from 3am and onward till he finally falls back asleep which is usually a good 2 hours later. We just have to keep getting up and putting him back over and over again. I guess its preparing me to wake up with a newborn all night long! The big bed thing is no fun at all! It really tests my patience as a mom. The napping in the bed..Whole other story. Good luck with the transition!

Travis, Shantell, and Family said...

Ok so I would love to win some of these so cute flower clips!! If I don't win can you possibly email me and tell me how you do them? If it is a secret I understand! Princess_shan2@yahoo.com, that would be so helpful for sure!
Also I would love to have some of your crochet headbands if you have any left?!?!? Any color would be so wonderful!! I think you are the craftiest person ever and I think you should teach classes and make money that way- I know you will totally be busy with a new one-but hey just an idea! About the big girl bed I totally agree with Klorissa on her post, I did both of those things with my daughter and it has worked! U just have to endure some crying at first and yes, they will fall asleep by the gate but in the end you will be so grateful you did what you did! Anyways good luck!?!? P.s. Your daughter and my daughter I think are the same age and I was wondering is she potty trained? If so when are you thinking to potty train her? Just want to know what other moms are doing or their train of thoughts on the whole idea! Email me or give me your email and I will invite you to see my blog, if you don't remember who I am!?

justin and jess said...

Wow these are soooo cute! I love them all!

Mike and Felisha said...

Hmm...you only posted this about 4 hours ago and already you have 22 comments POPULAR!! Haha or maybe it's cuz these flowers are way cute!! I definately want in Im usually not lucky but since I have won one of yours before(and i still haven't collected I just keep forgetting) maybe it will happen again

Hayley Neil said...

Yippee! I love the stuff you make! Pick me!

Jennie B. said...

These are dang cute! I saw them on your list and made a couple. So adorable. I love them. I've been making lots of fun things lately, but for some reason I get embarrassed to blog about them. Maybe I'll start. Anyway...keep doing those lists cuz I love them and sometimes I don't have time to search for new ideas! I love when the list is right in front of my eyes.

Jennie B. said...

I love that you said you are going the distance. There is nothing wrong with going the distance! Chubby babies are the best! Oh my gosh... I heard the cutest name the other day too.... I saw it on a blog. Let me refind it....

thehaagas said...

I love the clips, you really should teach a class or something or just have a craft night at your house that would be so fun. I love the name Aniston, I know a little girl just named Annie and she is so smart and sweet, just saying it's cute. I need some ideas of what to do in the hospital too, I have thought the same thing two days of sitting in a bed I like always doing something too. To bad we are not going to the same hospital and at the same time or we could visit eachother how fun would that be.

Jennie B. said...

Dempsy! Isn't that darling?

The Wynn Family said...

So cute!

Zach and Katie Hillstead said...

you are so cute:) ok i think i would use the bar pin the most seeing as how andrew does not need a flower in his hair:) they are sooooo cute! i love them!

*LAYLA and AUSTIN* said...

um you know I definitely want these flowers!! I can wear them on my fabric head band! I need to change it up because wearing the same flower practically everyday is causing my husband to give me strange looks. JK but really I WANT these. Rub some of your luck off on me. If I don't win them I still want to buy some it just wont be as cool! =) Let's get together soon!

Matt and Jenna said...

I WANT I WANT I WANT!!

chelsea and Jeremy said...

I want one they are way cute.

Team Fraser said...

those are super cute! And I love that you had a video! I didn't dialate ever on my own...I had to be started! I did the baby come out workout and everything! Good luck! I don't miss being pregnant but I can't wait to deliver again!

Amanda and Chad said...

Tara- I just sent you an email.. Count me in for this drawing!

Amanda

Heather said...

Tara how do you come up with all these cute ideas for crafts and clips. I wear some of your clips almost everyday. I LOVE THEM!

The Bakers said...

Yeah we aren't really friends I just knew of you in high school but I pretend we are cause you have amazing ideas! Abou the big girl bed it's rough. But everyone is right it is all about sticking to it and in about three days she will get it. Naps are the hardest. With both my kids I took the first nap in there on the floor but I wasn't pregnant. Good luck. PS for your drawing you should find one of those instruction sits for those cute clips they are so cute!

Andrea said...

Way cute. My girls would love them.

Jessie said...

You are way too talented. Would you mind passing some of your talent on to me? Would love to win!

Audrey said...

It's Audrey from Pebbles! I'm the one bothering you about the blog class. ;) I just found out I'm having a girl and I love those clips!
