These headbands have become very popular. I planned on buying one but then when i saw they cost between $40 to $50 dollars i had to pull out the glue gun. Here is how you can save about $47
1. Purchase feathers from joann or local craft store they should cost around $1.99 ( i bought peacock also but haven't made a headband yet)
2. Find a solid color headband that works well for you. I had to buy a tight elastic one so it won't pop up on my sheitel ( kinda tight but does the job)
3. Glue the feathers with a glue gun ( I used a cheap 1.99 mini glue gun and it worked great)
4. You can add a fake flower, or make a rose out of feathers like i did, or just go all the way feather.
Good luck and enjoy your new feathery retro look!

So i have a ribbon addiction . I love ribbon i buy, and buy it, and buy it. I usually wait till after the holidays and buy spools of it for 25 cents or less at target and walmart. I'm so bad that yesterday i walked the holiday isles at Target to see what the colors were this year ( a lot of browns. I love brown) planning my post holiday sale ribbon attack. With that said i found this great ribbon project on here on Juggling Frogs. I thought this was a great way to alleviate all the paper scrap markers in our seforim that don't have ribbons!

It's hard to believe after tragedy that life goes on. This morning i got up got my kids ready dropped everyone off and went to work. I walked into my classroom and i smiled, turned on music and started my day. It is hard to believe that my Shluchis will continue i will still teach chassidus everyday to kinderlach. I will cook dinner everynight and well... Life goes on. I have decided that i also need to move on with my blog. Before this horrible loss i had planned to post pics from my son's birthday. I didn't post them because my heart and thoughts were in Mubai, but a birthday IS important. A birthday is a time to grow and build, and after this tragedy that is what we are all trying to do build and grow. With all that said here i my 2yr old's ( i can't believe he is 2) birthday pics. He had a Mitzvah car theme. We had car cake said Pesukim and decorated our own mitzvah cars to take home. I made little packages with a make your own pushka in it as goody bags. The best part was i had the party in my classroom, so i didn't have a bunch of little ones leaving frosting prints on my couch at home. HAPPY BIRTHDAY SWEET LITTLE DOVIE WE LOVE YOU!!!
