Mint Chocolate Ice cream anyone

Well we reached 36 degree weather today finally!!!  I was glad to see the little bit of snow we had on the ground melt away. 

My oldest son didn't have pre-school today so the boys and I sat around and watched movies for a big chunk of the day after the chores were done.  While we sat and watched movies I crafted (I can't seem to sit still through any TV show or movie), I pulled out my scrap stash of fabric and started making rosettes.  Seriously I probably made close to 50 or more because once I got started I couldn't seem to help myself.  I did burn myself with the glue gun which put a damper in the process for a few minutes, but after a few "I'll kiss it for you mommy" comments and kisses it was feeling much much better.  After the rosette making process I figured I'd better find a use of a few of them right away before the honey came home and saw my lovely little stash (not that he would've minded, but he would have made a comment about the case of ADD he thinks I have) so I made a clip for my hair.

Of course it was almost impossible for me to get a good picture considering I put it in the back of my head, so my honey snapped some photos for me to share.  He did a wonderful job, So thank you honey!!!

Don't the 3 of the rosette's together remind you of mint chocolate ice cream?  I don't know why I'm thinking about ice cream, it may be warmer here today but it is definetly not warm enough for ice cream.  At any rate I hope you enjoyed this quick craft for the day and I hope yall have a great weekend!!  So until next time........

Happy Crafting!!!
