Tutu Part Two


This isn’t my first tutu post here and it certainly isn’t my last. Tutus are just great. They make people happy. And they are super easy to make. Somehow the subject came up in my mom’s classroom and she kind of jokingly asked me if I would come teach her girls how to make their own while I was in town. I was thrilled to spread the tutu love! I’ve worked in an elementary school before and have always loved helping out in my mom’s classrooms, so I was really looking forward to it. I brought in their color requests on a warm, yet rainy Friday and we got to work. My sister and grandma (who was also visiting) came and helped keep the tulle strips coming – those girls were fast workers! We had less than an hour to work, but they made some good progress. The girls were so sweet and fun to hang out with. And they made some pretty awesome color selections!

I’ve always known what a good teacher my mom is, but I was definitely reminded during this activity. She has a small class of kids that just need a little extra attention to get on grade level. She treats them just like any other kids in the school though and really cares about them on an academic and personal level. I could tell how much they appreciated getting to do special activities. Especially after working so hard all year! Anyway, I could go on and on about all the great things she does for her kids (being that I am also one of her kids), but instead I will leave you with a few pictures of our fun afternoon! And if you’re interested in my first tutu DIY, here it is!


I knew we would get along great when I got their pink and animal print requests!


Her face was much happier than her hand


Yeah, they had cake and punch before we arrived…grrrr

    So fun! I am “Mystery Reader” at my daughter’s kindergarten class today and am so looking forward to it. I love hanging with the kids. They are so awesome! I am doing a special craft with them after our story. Will share on my blog next week. Give your mom an extra hug for me, teachers are amazing and if you’re really lucky you get one like your mom. I was fortunate to have a few and they really made a lasting impression.

      That is so awesome! Looking forward to that post. And thank you for the sweet comment. I’ve had some memorable teachers too and still value them so much. I’m sure my mom appreciates the reminder that what she does is appreciated by many. : )

    Love the tutus! They’re so much fun. I want to make one for myself. 🙂
    This is totally unrelated, but I’ve been meaning to ask you: how did you customize the Tumblr, Twitter, and Bloglovin’ widgets on your sidebar. I’ve been trying to figure out how to do that for months with no success. Your blog looks awesome!

      I really want to make one for myself too! Someday I will get around to it.
      Thanks so much! I created the buttons myself, then added them to the sidebar with the ‘image’ widget and linked them to the social media pages. I hope that makes sense! I’m sure there are easier ways…this is just what I came up with one day while playing around
