One Excited Mermaid Mama

Been crazy busy prepping for Mermaids and Mamas this week! The girls and I are all soooooo excited! We prepped the projects (of course, I’m sure I’ll think of something else I want to do between now and 9am Saturday morning), we’ve planned the menu, and our final shopping will take place tomorrow. DH has graciously offered to be our main Mer-man cook and bottle washer (no, you’re right, I didn’t really give him a choice, but he did truly volunteer to cook burgers and hotdogs on the grill Saturday night instead of us going pizza delivery!). Here’s a couple sneak peeks of some of the projects we’ll be doing. Above, pendants and hair clips. For the pendants I changed up the recipe for Aimee’s collage pendants, and for the hair clips, I just played around with silk flowers, ribbon and metal clips. Below, something to put all their treasures in, of course! I’ll have lots of pictures and hopefully a few videos for you next week. We’re having a good old-fashioned dress up party with dancing music Saturday night!
