Welcome to Pinterest Tuesdays!!

If you haven't heard of Pinterest yet, you seriously have been living under a rock :-) Thanks to facebook, it seems as though everyone is jumping on the bandwagon, and for good reason! Who doesn't love useless hours of searching for random things that one needs or doesn't need? Who doesn't love snagging crafty ideas from crafty people?? As a self proclaimed non crafter, I.stinkin.love.this.site. I've decided to take ideas from Pinterest and actually put them to use, instead of just going on a pinning marathon. I have tested and will test ideas, crafts, recipes you name it and give the thumbs up or thumbs down. In honor of Valentine's day, my review is two fold: a hairstyle for my little valentine as well as a treat for her class's party today. Read on :-)

This pic unfortunately does not have a source, as it was just uploaded "user" but if this is your kid please let me know and I'll totally give you credit!! I broke it down into steps to show you how it's done:

Step 1: I always wet her hair with a spray bottle then style. Make the pig tails a bit higher to allow space for the heart below the elastic.

Step 2: Topsy Tail it!! Remember this back in the 90's?? BUT your tucking the hair UNDER so it comes out the top rather than over the top and the hair ends up under

Step 3: Now that the hair is coming out the top, split it in half and twist. Secure each twist below original elastic. Voila!!! LOVE THIS!!!! Kudos to the one who came up with it!

PART TWO of my review :-)

Ok, for E's valentine's day party I took this idea from A Turtle's Life For Me and adapted for V day. Great Halloween idea, Natalie!!

Here's my rendition, clearly not as awesome but hey I tried:

Materials: Clear plasticware
Googly eyes  Black Sharpie
Strawberry Yogurt (I used Trader Joe's)
Crumbled up Oreo's

So yeah, I can definitely work on this, as the eyes are too high and maybe more yogurt but overall super idea and I am sure the kids will love it! Enjoy!!
