For Baby

I like to craft, and every now and then I see something that I must do!

When I saw this idea it was done with paint. However, this is super easy if you have a vinyl cutting machine (or a friend with one ;). -- I have a new granddaughter who needed her own personalized soap and lotion.... What do you think?

It was fun!  Just remove the labels from the soap and lotion (peel them off), clean off the sticky residue with this:

and rinse the  bottles with soap and water.

The spray is Pure Citrus Orange Room Spray available at Amazon.com and Home Depot.  (This magical spray takes sticky off of anything.  It also removes indelible ink and crayon off any hard surface.  Remember, I teach first grade and I KNOW.  It smells nice too!)

When the bottles are clean, apply the vinyl and you have a fast, easy, personalized baby gift.
Fast, cute, and fun!

And a big thank you to LaNae at Its Written on the Walls for featuring my post!

I teach first grade and there is something to smile about everyday.  Today's charming funny is this:

We were making Mother's Day cards.  There was a "form" for the children to fill out and one of the items said, "My mother is ____  years old."  The answers are always kind of funny, but one little boy was completely puzzled.

 He said, "I really don't know how old she is."

I said, "Well, how old are YOU?"

He: Six.

Me: Well she must be older than six then.

He:  My brother is 17.

Me: She's probably older that 17 then too.

He: I really don't know.

Me: Well, what do you THINK?

He: I just know she's really close to OLD!

:)  It made my day!
