DIY Spooky Googly Eyed Goblin Sensory Project + a Fun Flower Child Hippie Costume Idea



Today was a day like any other... until this little hippie demanded we do some type of arts and crafts project - then things got real spooky.


Okay well... maybe, things didn't actually get spooky.

This simple DIY Spooky Googly Eyed Goblin project is fun and a great learning activity! Get the how-to for this project and the details on this sweet little flower child hippie costume!

And if I'm being totally honest, she didn't verbally demand we get artsy, but her little hippie outfit and get-into-everything disposition lead me to believe she would enjoy getting crafty! I'm happy to say, I was totally correct in my assumptions, she loved it.

Do you and your little flower child want to get crafty and make a little googly eyed goblin sensory project?

This project is super easy, although it's a ton of fun for kids to be involved in - I had D help me by holding the items I wasn't using and then she of course helped mix up the food coloring and pour in the googly eyes and such. For an older kid, this project could even be done with minimal supervision!

With that said, it's time to get crafty! To make this little gawky guy you will need:

A ziploc baggy
oil or soap
water
food coloring
googly eyes
washi tape



To get this project started you'll want add a handful of googly eyes into your ziploc baggy, then have a partner hold it or find a sturdy place to pour!

Next, pour about a 1/4 cup of baby oil into the bag.

Then you'll want to mix in enough water to make the bag about half full and add in about 3 drops of any food coloring shade.

Seal the baggy, add washi tape to the end for added protection from leaks and then tape it down to a surface or hang it up on the wall!

Now is the time to poke it, talk about it, squish it, and just have fun!

Unique "Wildflower" Baby Costume Idea - Inspired by the Tom Petty song "Wildflowers"


https://www.facebook.com/groups/bloomology

This kid is growing like a weed and she truly has the soul of a little wildflower.

https://www.facebook.com/groups/bloomology

She always wants to follow what her heart desires, adventuring and exploring new places are truly her favorite activities, and being in the great outdoors is invigorating to her spirit... I mean, you can literally see her light up each time we go outdoors.


https://www.facebook.com/groups/bloomology

She loves music, she dances whenever she wants to and it's completely to the beat of her own drum, she growls when she's feeling silly, she seems to already favor art, and she doesn't have any difficultly expressing herself...

https://www.facebook.com/groups/bloomology

I'm getting off base now though... What I'm trying to say is she has a sweet little free spirit and I mean, as her mama, I'm pretty proud of my little "wildflower".

https://www.facebook.com/groups/1778753155748430/

So, dressing her up as a little wildflower was an obvious costume waiting to happen.

https://www.facebook.com/groups/1778753155748430/

Plus, after hearing of the passing of Tom Petty, one of my all-time favorite musicians, I thought it would be a fun way to honor a great soul and a great song. If you haven't heard Wildflowers by Tom Petty, then have a listen as you make this costume.

https://www.facebook.com/groups/1778753155748430/

Instead of getting all crazy with it and planting her in a garden of fabric flowers, we kept today's costume super simple.

https://www.facebook.com/groups/1778753155748430/

D wore an olive The Baby Bird Boutique romper paired with a super sweet sunflower made by your favorite new place to get floral crowns, little blooms, and even fun "belts" like this - Bloomology! Then, we added a headwrap from Hello Miss Gorgeous as a finishing touch and she was all set to show off and dance around like the little wildflower she is.

https://www.facebook.com/groups/1778753155748430/


Does your sweet gal belong among the wildflowers too?

Show Mom Your Appreciation: 4 Mother's Day Gift Ideas from Kay Jewelers That Show You Care

Thanks to Kay Jewelers for sponsoring today's post, regardless all opinions expressed below are completely my own.


Believe it or not, Mother's Day is just around the corner...

https://www.kay.com/en/kaystore

The day when we celebrate all the wonderful things our mamas do for us. From holding us on their hips, to cleaning faces with their freshly licked thumbs, to creating an epic last minute diorama for a school project the night before it's due, mamas are the perfect mixture of nurturing and helpful. Basically, we are all super heroes - but we run on little-to-no sleep, just try to do our best, and love our kids fiercely. That's why all mamas deserve to be celebrated... Can I get an amen?!
https://www.kay.com/en/kaystore

I'm pretty excited to be celebrating my first Mother's Day with Delainey... and I'm ecstatic because I get to spend the day with my mother as well! While I'm still learning the ropes and adjusting to my new "super hero" life as a mother, I'm lucky enough to have my best friend to coach me through it all.

https://www.kay.com/en/kaystore

It's funny, our relationship has gone through so much - from her being my entertainment committee when I was a kiddo, to my favorite person to share clothing with during my teen years, and now, well now, she's a friend - my best friend. The bond a mother and daughter share is unlike any other and  I feel that way with Delainey and I'm certain my mama feels that way about me (and my sister).

https://www.kay.com/en/kaystore

While I plan on spoiling my mama, I was still on the fence about what to get her. Are you in the same boat? If so, here are 4 different items from Kay Jewelers that I bet your mama has on her wish list:

https://www.kay.com/en/kaystore



1. From accessories to outfits, we all know your mama always has the most beautiful items, but one thing she needs (and every other mama in the world needs) is Diamond Solitaire Earrings from Kay Jewelers. These timeless beauties are the perfect addition for every mama's accessories collection and every mama I know would go absolutely gaga if she was given a pair of these earrings on Mother's Day.

2. If anyone loves rings, it's my mama... but I know she's not the only one! Is your mama a ring lover as well? Then I'm certain she would love to have this Open Hearts Ring. It's not only beautiful, the design represents giving and receiving love and having an open heart, the perfect representation of motherhood.

3. When you see a piece of jewelry and it takes your breath away, I think it's meant to be your Mother's Day present... right? This Diamonds in Rhythm bracelet is gorgeous and so perfect for any mama, but this is what I have on the top of my Mother's Day wish list. The whole Diamond in Rhythm collection is really on my list--actually, the diamonds are made to be captivating from any angle... which means myself and other new mamas can be chasing after our toddlers and catch a glimpse of these as we are grabbing their precious little hands and be reminded that we are loved and appreciated.

4. Last but not least, we all know the way to a mama's heart is her kids - that's why this key necklace is the perfect gift for your mom on Mother's Day. If you're a dad or son trying to find the perfect present, you've unlocked the answer with this Diamonds in Rhythm Heart Key Pendant Necklace.


Showing appreciation on Mother's Day is what the day really is all about and these are just a few beautiful options offered at Kay Jewelers that will make your mama smile. Do you want to get your mom something beautiful and meaningful for Mother's Day? Check out the Kay Jewelers and find the perfect present for your mom.

My Little Secret: The Best Boutiques to Buy Bows for Baby Girls

I never thought I'd be that mom... but here I am and I'm guilty of being the one.


That's right, I'm proud to have that baby on my hip that is rocking a bow the size of Texas on her precious little head.




Judge me, if you will... these bows are a way of life for us now. I guess I'm a stereotypical southern mama, but I like my girl dressed up like a present everyday with a bow on her head almost every waking hour.


We don't just wear oversized bows though, D sometimes will rock a tiny bow too. We like variety, we like color, and we like cute.

Officially Announcing Baby Harmon's Name & Sharing Our Love for The Cotton Cupcake Shoppe! { + a Giveaway}

Thanks to The Cotton Cupcake Shoppe for sending over the cutest personalized items for our little gal to wear, she's going to be so adorable in these and we're super happy to have been able to share our big news with the world with your help and expertise in embroidery!

I'm going to put this out there for anyone planning on having a child or even contemplating the idea, naming a child has proven to be a super difficult task... I'm not sure how people can just know. Maybe my hubby and I are just super indecisive, maybe I'm just picky or he's too traditional but we've had quite the adventure trying to figure out what our daughter's name will be.

https://www.etsy.com/shop/cottoncupcakeshoppe/

Although, nicknaming her came easily and from the time we found out we were expecting we started calling her our little pineapple. She's been known as the pineapple or our pineapple for about 20 weeks now and while the nickname is super cute and may even be one of her nicknames for life, she may not appreciate being named after a fruit that wears a crown when she's an adult so we had to settle on a real name.

https://www.etsy.com/shop/cottoncupcakeshoppe/

We went through list after list, had narrowed it down to handful of names, finally decided on a first name a few weeks ago, then had the hardest time choosing a middle name. But we finally figured it out, I think the name we've chosen is perfect for this little miracle we've been blessed with and I'm so excited to say she's officially named!

https://www.etsy.com/shop/cottoncupcakeshoppe/

I was thinking we might wait until she was born to announce it on the blog, but it's too much fun to finally know her name and not call her by it. Plus, I love personalizing items and I can't imagine hiding some upcoming projects from you, so without further ado, Baby Harmon is officially going to be named Delainey Kate Harmon.

https://www.etsy.com/shop/cottoncupcakeshoppe/

We decided on Delainey weeks ago, it's the perfect mixture of sweet and classic, but choosing a middle name was shockingly more difficult for us. Kate is our final choice because my middle name is Katherine and my mother and sister share the middle name Kaye, so it's kind of like we are continuing a family tradition with a K middle name but adding our own little twist for her.

https://www.etsy.com/shop/cottoncupcakeshoppe/

Not only have we decided on a name for our babe, we've started personalizing items for her... Click here to learn more about the Cotton Cupcake Shoppe and check out all of the adorable items she carries, including the beauties I shared up above.

https://www.etsy.com/shop/cottoncupcakeshoppe/

From the perfect little pineapple onesies, to burlap art stitched with a sweet quote to hang on baby's walls, to adorable customized hats perfect for showing off your little one's name, this little shop makes the prettiest items and I knew I had to share her work with the big news of announcing Delainey's name...

https://www.etsy.com/shop/cottoncupcakeshoppe/

The Cotton Cupcake Shoppe all started whenever Amber, the owner's, third daughter was 4 months old. She had her in an adorable onesie but noticed it was missing something, she embroidered on her nickname and it's all history... Her little one time addition to her baby girl's clothing turned into a gorgeous shop full of the perfect personalized creations for all babies!

https://www.etsy.com/shop/cottoncupcakeshoppe/

The thing I love most about her shop is that she has a true passion for everything she creates and it really shows. The items she makes are truly unique and one of a kind and I'm so honored we were able to share our daughter's name with you showing off her detailed work.

It's true, the official announcement has been made, we've named our daughter! Find out her name and learn more about our new found love for The Cotton Cupcake Shoppe and all of the gorgeous personalized items in the shop...
