Blink! Blink! Blink!

We are back home and now it’s back-to-work time, which is not going so well but fortunately right before we went to London we landed this really fun Energizer Flashlight post. The deadline was super tight but the girls and I managed to learn morse code, make morse code bracelets AND pull off a sleepover photoshoot in our living room, all days before we left for London! Fun right?

Maybe I’m better under pressure? Don’t tell anyone though because I hate it!!!! I am such a mad woman when I’m trying to make the images in my head show up on camera the way I see them. Everyone around me hates it too.

But we managed! Bug is a great model since she’s been “posing” for me since before she could even talk. She doesn’t even know she is posing most of the time because my directions are muscle memory for her. (Though she has been doing this profile chin jut lately with ice cold eyes [not pictured here, maybe in the wedding post below] that I’m just not getting. I’ll just chalk it up to tweenagerhood and finding her own identity.)

But do check it out! We loved the morse code bracelets we made. I thought they’d only last a few days because they are only made with embroidery floss tied in a knot but the girls kept them on for almost a whole month! We might have to make them again with something more durable. They were quite a hit!

    Morse code braclets! What a great idea. I love the sleepover tent too. Today has been mostly a read and do nothing day, with a trip to the farmers market, I would have love to have lazed with a book in this tent.

    Oh…you should google Curselets. While most of them are a little too vulgar for my tastes, tell me it doesn’t make you want to put your favorite curse (clean or adult!) on a bracelet. ?
