 Christmas is in two days. Seriously? I am sooooo behind this year. I have presents I still haven't mailed and things I still have to buy. I hope you've done better than me. I guess it's the thought right, like I thought I would have things mailed on time. Does that count? I didn't think so. 
Well, Happy Friday!

DIY: Montessori Pink Tower Ornament

The Montessori Method holds a special place in my heart and I truly believe it is the most amazing education that I can (thankfully) provide for my daughter. She currently attends Montessori school in the Toddler classroom and I also am lucky enough to work at the same school. I like to actually make something for her teachers that she can also have a hand in creating so this year we decided to construct little Pink Tower ornaments. To me, the Pink Tower is kind of like the Montessori mascot. 
The one I kept for myself. 
First, I picked up some pink craft paint, 3 different sizes of wooden blocks, and some twine. I got all of these supplies from Michaels. 
Sydney then painted each block pink. I think we put two coats on each block. 
The final blocks; I made 5 ornaments total. After all of the blocks were dry, I glued them together with tacky glue and then hot glued the piece of twine to the top. I wrote 'Made by Sydney 2011' on the bottom of each one. 

The finished product on our tree. This is an easy project if you have any 'Montessorians' in your life. Her teachers and my boss LOVED them.

Okay time, slow down....the weeks are really flying by! Just lots of holiday activities going on around here, decorating, baking, crafting, singing, etc. Sydney is really into the Christmas songs this year, it's so cute to hear her sing Jingle Bells. Also, anything that is decorated like Christmas (anywhere we go) she has to talk about how beautiful it is really loudly. It's pretty awesome. Toddlers are fun.

Happy Wednesday! The weather here in Florida is still bi-polar, cool one day and hot the next so that's been super fun. {-----Sarcasm. I guess I shouldn't complain seeing as how the north is gonna be getting a crap-load of snow this week. Sorry northerners!

I love pulling out my boots, I always feel very kick-ass when I wear them. That combined with leopard print and I'm unstoppable.

Can I just say that I used to be a stripe snob but now I LOVE them, it's like a neutral. Also, I got this necklace at Old Navy and they have some seriously cute jewelry lately. Yeah for cheap bling!
