My Twins Wearing Homemade Flower Headbands I Made

This is my twins on Valentine's Day, wearing the Pink Flower Headband I made them. It's it just adorable! I know you like it, and probably want one to..right! I can make one or two or three for you. I love making these and they are so easy. I love that my twins love wearing head accessories.

My twins are wearing the outfit from my Mom, Nana, they received for Valentine's Day. Oh, I love my twins wearing these headbands, just a much as I love seeing them wear their beanie hats too.

Here are my precious TwiceBabies wearing their homemade Pink Flower Headbands from Mommy.

Pink Headbands I Made My Twins For Valentine's Day

Along with the Black Beanie Hat I made for my twins, I also made them a Pink Flower Headband. They love their new headband just as well. The Pink Headband was also a homemade gift from Mommy for them. Oh, these were so easy to make, just like the Black Beanie Hats.

So, I asked my twins if they wanted another headband or beanie and of course they said, "YES"!! I asked them what colors they wanted and these are the colors they choose: RED, PURPLE and BLUE. These are perfect colors since they have very cute purple outfit from Nana, many Blue outfits and I think one Red outfit.

Now, I am not sure if I want to make them more headbands or beanie hats from these colors. Anyway, here are my twins in the Pink Flower Headbands.

Black Beanie Hats I Made My Twins For Valentines Day

Today, Valentine's Day, my twin girls opened their gifts from Mommy and Daddy. For their Valentine's Day, I purchased gifts for them and homemade them gifts as well. The homemade gifts I made them were black beanie hats.

Well, the beanie itself is black and the flower is blue. I love them, they are so cute and my twins love them too. Right now, they are wearing their "princess" costumes though. So, when you see my twins, they are wearing their black beanie hats with their "princess" costumes.

Once their Valentine's Day outfit from Nana dries, I will have them wear their other homemade hair accessory with that outfit as it is pink. Oh, my twins loved opening their gifts, especially when they saw Mommy had made them these hats and headbands. They love when Mommy makes them anything from home.

Here are my twins wearing their black beanie hats.

Pink Headband with Flower

Another gift for my twins this Valentine's are Pink Headbands with a Flower on it. These, just like the black beanie hats with a flower, were easy to make. It took me a month to finally get around to making the headbands and beanies. I looked at then in the bag I had them it, several times, them but the bag back down.

Finally, when Daddy took the twins out one night, I finally decided to make these headbands, and beanies. I knew how to make them, just was not sure how long it would take. Well, well, well, it look me less than twenty minutes to make two headbands and two beanies. It was so easy, I am wondering now, why it took me so long to finally get off my behind and make them.

I can tell you was something new I had never done before, that is why. This is something I can do in my sleep now. I can also make a headband for your little girl(s) too. These headbands also come in a variety of colors.

Here are photos of me making the headbands and me wearing one of them. Once I give my twins their Valentine's gifts and they put the headbands on, I will take photos of them wearing them and post an article here, with the photos too.

Black Beanie Hats with Flowers

For my twins Valentine's gifts this year, I made them some homemade beanie hats. I found this amazing website where I can purchase the beanie hats, flowers and gemstones for a very, very good price. In fact, making them at home is what I prefer doing anyway.

As much as I love helping out other online hat companies, by purchasing their products, if I can make them myself, I am all for it. In fact, since I prefer making all things homemade, this is right up my ally.

When I found this website which sells their beanie hats, flowers and other products at a very reasonable price, I purchased two black beanie hats, two blue flowers, two pink flowers, two pink and two white headbands. These hats were so easy to make it was shocking.

I have photos below of how I made them and me wearing one of the beanie hats. If you want a beanie hat for your little girl(s), I can make them in an array of colors too. Once my twins put the beanie hats on, I will take photos of them and write a new article and add the photos as well.

Renovate This

Homeowners are busy setting their sights on the top renovation trends for the next decade, hoping these trends will spark positive movements in real estate markets. Many of the renovation trends popular in the early 2000s are simply out of date and frankly a bit uninspired. The exterior trends need light to moderate alterations such as a fresh coat of paint in a bright new color, yet a lot of home interiors require major overhauls as kitchens and bathrooms begin to look outdated and worn. Geographical location is important too, a trend may be just beginning in the New York real estate market area, but in the California market it could be old news.

In the last ten years, kitchen cabinets were defined by natural wood and colored melamine. Yet, the new trends in kitchen styles are not following these basic patterns anymore.

Colors: Many modern style followers are enamored with glossy colors. Bright reds, greens, and aqua blues are the cutting edge colors for the brave and style conscious. Others still will continue to enjoy the sophisticated dark, warm, and natural colors characteristic of 2010.
Drawers: Cabinet doors are being changed for drawers that contain everything from clothes to washers and dryers! Manufacturers are designing their appliances to fit into drawers. Refrigerators, freezers, dishwashers and warming drawers will all be contained within space saving drawers. Renovations for the next decade place a high premium on saving space but also minimalism. These space saving drawers are wonderful ways to keep your busy life organized without sacrificing the aesthetic of your home.
Countertops: Granite and marble are being replaced by composite countertops. They possess the look and feel of natural stone without the worry of damage. Composite countertops are made of Zodiaq and Silestone and mixed with a synthetic bonding material. These mixed material countertops are more durable and heat-resistance than granite and come in a variety of colors.
Bathroom Styles:The size of bathrooms has doubled as compared to the last 10 years. This is because bathrooms are not simply bathrooms anymore. They have become multi-room, multi-purpose spa rooms, and luxury shower spaces. Tile is still the floor material of choice and can be seen on the walls and even ceilings of these luxury bathrooms.

Soaker tubs, a Japanese innovation, are large enough to stretch your legs out and high enough to completely submerge your body into the water. Other gadgets like hot air bubblers, massage your body more evenly than traditional spa tub. The shower has split into two areas. The first area is large and glass with seats and many showerheads. The second area is an enclosed cabinet with a full steam bath. Ad to this equation a flat screen television, iPod player, and color therapy lighting and the shower doubles as a home entertainment theater.

Decks:Contractors are designing decks larger and more functional. This new style deck is layered platforms that include an outdoor ecosystem complete with plants, trees, and even outdoor jacuzzis. Building decks that double as outdoor living spaces, complete with barbecue grills, fire pits, and full furniture is a new trend that is becoming increasingly popular.

In-Law Suites:As the baby boomer generation takes on more responsibility with children and parents, In-Law suites recognize the multi-generational living situations of many families. In-Law suites are convenient solutions for long term living arrangements necessitated by the baby boomer generations’ growing care responsibilities toward their children and parents.
These suites will range anywhere from 1 to 3 bedrooms often time with full bathrooms.
