"Your Happy Birthday" Magic Candle. Make a wish : Primary Singing Time

I'm really not trying to go broke being the Primary Chorister, so I found the idea on Sugardoodle and made my own with what I had.

One of my favorite quotes is "It's what you do with what you have that makes you who you are." I forget who said it, but it's wonderful and always on my mind.

The idea is that you will sing a Primary Happy Birthday song for said Birthday boy/girl and then at the end they make a wish and blow out the candle. You slide the "flame" down and it disappears. Kind of like a push up pop in reverse.

Here's how I made my Magic Birthday Candle.

If you're a crafter like me you may already have these supplies. Here's what I used :
Glue Gun
Popsicle stick for inside the tube
a tulle tube for the outside of the candle : You could do a toilet paper roll or paper towel roll also.
Gold & Coral tulle for the flame.
 I started by rolling the tulle around my 4 fingers (It did go past my fingers) then I cut down on the top to make it look more like fire. I rolled the coral then a layer or two of the gold on top. I hot glued it to a popsicle stick the tulle wasn't sticking that well and you need it to be pretty glued when you pull it down. So I glued the felt around the popsicle stick glueing it on the bottom of the tulle as well.

 Here is the popsicle stick with the felt glued on and over the tulle

 See it goes inside the tulle tube and when you pull the flame goes into the tube.
 To pretty it up I used the same felt fabric I have and printed this happy birthday sign I made to match the felt design....OCD people beware I know it doesn't match up.
If you don't have felt you can print out this free printable Happy Birthday I made that should fit around your tube.   You can print it in Google Drive HERE

 I laminated the felt because I wanted the felt to last over time. I probably could have just glued it straight to the tube. You may want to laminate your paper for the printable version. Or modge podge on scrapbook paper could be cute.
Glue the Happy Birthday felt/paper all the way around your tube, stick your popsicle stick with the flame inside and you have a big magic birthday candle for the kids to enjoy.  My kids loved blowing it out and making wishes.

If you decide to take on this project please share your creations with me! I'd love to see.

Thanks for stopping by.

Last Day Of School! Keep In Touch Card Free Printable

Just because it's the last day of school doesn't mean your kids and their friends can't play together!

*Personal information is blacked out.
I wanted to make cards, something my son could hand out to his new friends at school. We just moved here last year and he was really sad about saying goodbye for the summer. This way if they want to play they can give him a call.  Luckily, I found this cute saying online fromShe's kinda crafty who had the same idea. I made the card and thought I'd share it with you!   
The card is a rectangle on the printout and I used an edge cut out to get the round edges.  I love those little things, they make cards so cute.  The font I used is Janda Silly Monkey

First Day of Homeschool (Free Printable)

This year our crew will begin our homeschooling journey.

It's kind of hard to explain how I decided to homeschool my three young children of different ages. Either I'm completely cookoo bonkers, or I'm definitely inspired by the holy ghost.

I'd like to think the latter, and since my husband and I decided to go full steam ahead with homeschooling, I've already seen blessings in our lives. Blessings of family togetherness, less stress, love of learning and life and we really haven't begun school yet.

I decided to share with you some free "First day of Homeschool" Printables because I wasn't able to find any on pinterest.

Homeschool kids need first day of school pictures too!

Have a wonderful school year!

Enjoy and thanks for popping by!

Where to find Cute Modest dresses

Hello! Welcome!

If you are reading this post you are like so many other ladies that ask me the same question. Where do you get all these cute dresses??

Since I get that question a lot around here I thought I would write a blog post with all of the online places I frequent to find modest dresses.  Modest meaning long or appropriate length and sleeves.  I will occasionally purchase a dress with spaghetti straps and wear a cardi or white t-shirt underneath also. But who wants to do that all the time??

So pin it, share it, bookmark it and check them out....if you can't find anything message me and I'll see what I can do.

Seriously, I'm not joking about this.  I love to shop and if I get to shop for people it's even more fun...of course you will have to pay me.

These are all places for 0-plus size. So, there is something for everyone.
