Where I was...

...when Michael Jackson died. Oh YES i did. i just have to say this one thing. michael jackson was a little bit of a creep-o his last few years of life, for sure, BUT...he was an amazing performer and i love (almost) all of his songs. i'm a little sad, but i'm not freaking out like others. wondering how i am going to go on with life, like a little piece of me died...not true. i'm sad that the king of pop died but my life goes on. i found out he died yesterday via text message just as i was making some homemade salsa verde enchiladas. (they were pretty darn good).
ok so switch topics, salsa verde enchiladas are pretty life changing. i didn't use any of that canned junk they try to sell as salsa verde, my neighbor taught me how to make my own. like from scratch. with lots of tamitios. it's AMAZING. even cold it's good. i made enough for 20 enchiladas, 2 full pans with enough for leftovers. i put one pan in the freezer to bake on a day nobody wants to cook. if you'd like some life changing enchiladas feel free to come over. (notice: i call them life changing since the only ones i have ever had are dry, red sauced and gross).
p.s. if you need some entertainment today check out these links:
"emo kid is is throwing a dove at my face, i guess that means that he flipped me the bird..."
"i'm a spelunker, and i am in a cave..."
SERIOUSLY RUN DON'T WALK AND WATCH THOSE LINKS. let me know what you think. i think they are hilarious.

Hair Flowers

i've been so busy lately. i just started a new job, job number 3, so i haven't really had time to post anything on this here blog. however, in the last couple days when i do have some free time i have been making some hair accessories for my photography. my neighbor also thinks i should sell them at a local craft fair but i'm not sure i'm sold. everything has to be $3 and under so we'll see.
i cover the alligator clips with ribbon to make it look a little nicer and to be softer on the soft baby heads:
here is the out-of-control flower mess:i am doing good and keeping it all in the box when i'm not using it FYI.
some completed flower clippies:

here are some cute crocheted headbands that you can put the clippies on. they are interchangeable. i love seeing these headbands with a HUGE flower on a little baby. seriously
and these crocheted hats...AMAZING. i love them. they too are interchangeable. i think i might weave some ribbon through the bottom part. these are newborn sizes but i think i'll go ahead and order several bigger sizes too.
and some more completed clippies.

tomorrow i will be buying a large amount of tulle to make a few newborn/toddler tutus. i am a little obsessed with photography props especially when i can do a craft to make them!

and last but not least my friend abby had a baby last friday...unfortunately i won't be able to practice any of my new hats or anything b/c she had a boy. his name is daniel and he is CUTE. they discovered a hole in his little lungs so he was in an incubator this weekend but today when i visited he was still in the nursery but in a crib with a heart monitor. hopefully they get to go home tomorrow!
