The past three years owl items have gradually grown in popularity. This year they have gone hog wild. I don’t know if you have noticed, but I have been seeing owls everywhere.
Somehow those funny looking big eyed critters have now become simply adorable.
My friend, Ann threw a birthday party for her daughter, Elise. The theme being “Night Owl”.
If you knew Ann like I do, you’d know that she went all out. She found a cute pattern of an owl and the girls made owl notebooks.
I decided to make a few for my granddaughters for Halloween. Not sure where she got the pattern. I’m guessing Pinterest. Sorry, if I knew who I would credit them.
Easy to do, just cover an inexpensive composition book with scrapbook paper. I used two sided tape. I got these books for a mere $.49.
See what I mean about those big wide eyed things. They melt their way right into your heart.
I gotta admit, they look pretty cute all in a row. Looking at this it reminds me of the Sesame Street game, “One of these things is not like the other.” Can you see it?
I am a G.G.G. (gift giving grandma). Blame it on my mother. Growing up she always gave us gifts for the holidays and then did the same for my kids. I followed in her tradition. I don’t buy and give things to them for just any reason. But when a holiday rolls around they know that a prize is in store.
I think that my granddaughter, Paityn will be excited about her owl book.
Look at her newly decorated bedroom. Sorry, the pics aren’t the best. Taken with my phone.
Her mom repainted and recovered the seat of this darling dressing table. It was hers when she was young.
She also redid the bed and chest.
Her new bookcase was once her changing table.
Look at what a darling little baby she was.
And of course, beautiful babies turn into beautiful little girls!
Pretty pink room for a pretty pink loving girl!
I bet you can guess which book is for her.
How about you, are you a gift giving mom or grandma?
