Pinterest Projects: Rain Cloud Mobile


As we all know, Pinterest can be a great tool for collecting recipes, projects and all around inspiration but my boards have a way of collecting virtual dust. I can go crazy pinning things and then do nothing with them, so my latest "feature" (I should not say feature because that requires frequent blog posting) will be me finding a project on Pinterest and then recreating it. First up this rain cloud mobile:

Super cute mobile but the blog was in French, thanks to google translator though, I was able to pretty much figure out the instructions. I did not have the same materials that was used to make the mobile, so here's my spin on the project.

Cut two cloud shapes out of quilting batting (I scored this for free at a church rummage sale!) and cut out raindrop shapes from different colored felt.

Arrange raindrops into desired color combination and sew them into strands. I christened my new sewing machine by sewing raindrops, maybe someday I can tackle more adventurous projects... Sew around cloud leaving a small opening to stuff with polyfill. Sew a ribbon loop (not shown) on top of cloud and tie raindrop strands to base of cloud.

Ta-da! The finished product, my little sonny sure likes looking up at it and watching the raindrops sway back and and forth.

Me and My Teeth

My teeth and I have a love/hate relationship. I love that I have teeth, but I hate that at one time I got 6 cavities. That is what too much Fun Dip will do to you. Maybe I have a love/hate relationship with Fun Dip. Anyway, I recently found a great coupon for a local dentist which included x-rays, a cleaning and teeth whitening. I am happy to say that I had no new cavities, hooray! I picked up my whitening trays today and with them they also gave me these...

(Now I can look at my Chiclet sized teeth any time I want!)
I've been having fun with them, I left them on the kitchen table and I asked if they were Grandpa's, he looked at me really perplexed like and said "Of course not, come on!"He thought they were false teeth.  But then shortly after these teeth came to life.

Please meet Marty.

Marty's made himself quite at home, and has been chewing on Little Baby's toys. I better keep an eye on him, I expect he might get into some trouble, he's very curious.
