Snow on the last day of Spring Break!

Yuck! What a miserable week we've had weather wise for Punky's Spring break from school. Mostly cold and rainy. They did have one nice day that they got to play outside, sunshine 55 degrees, a nice spring day. This morning we woke up to this

But the Punky and Munky really enjoyed themselves this morning though. Had to dig out the snow pants and boots I'd put away first LOL!

Makes it kind of hard to think about all the spring/summer items I have made and need to photograph! I keep waiting for a nice day to get outside, I'm tired of taking boring pictures inside the house!

Leprechaun Trap and FREE SHIPPING!

It's St. Patricks Day! Yay! I'm not Irish myself, but since I married an Irishman that makes my children Irish and I like to have fun with that :). Punky and I made a Leprechaun trap the other day. We adapted some instructions I found in the Family Fun magazine. Those Leprechauns are tricky little fellows, wonder if this trap will be good enough to catch one today??

In honor of St. Patrick's Day, I am offering Free Shipping in the US and if you live in Ireland at my Punky N Munky Etsy shop! Just put FREESHIPBLOG in the message to seller at time of check out! Good through Midnight tonight US central time!

New! Adjustable No Slip Ribbon Headbands!!!

New in the punkynmunky etsy shop! Adustable no slip headbands! I am in love with how simple and elegant these look in the hair.

They are made from grosgrain ribbon with the ends sealed to prevent fraying. To prevent slipping out of the hair they have been treated on the inside with silicone. I sent my model here to school with one in her hair fully expecting to find it in her backpack when she came home. Nope, still in her hair!

Each one has a toggle to adjust the size of the headband to fit many different sizes! I use approximately 29" of ribbon which fits my 5year olds head as well as my big ole head!

So many different colors to choose from, this is just a sample of colors! I have more and I can even order other colors if I don't have what you want!
