Happy Birthday Dr. Suess!

My daughter's school is celebrating reading week in honor of Dr. Seuss and his birthday. So I thought I would whip up a few little things for her to wear with her uniform. It's not often you get get to accessorize in a catholic school, so we jumped at the chance.

Each day has a theme and today you had to wear a button that everyone could read. Well, I don't know if you have gone looking for buttons that are appropriate for a little girl to wear to a catholic school, but it is not an easy task. Party Girl and WTF! buttons weren't exactly what we were looking for.

So, while watching Bethany Ever After (oh, yes I did and loved every minute of it!) I decided to whip a little something up. No need to critique the lack of perfection on this button. It was the thought that counted and my daughter was beaming when she left the house this morning.

But, we needed a little something else too. You can't celebrate Dr. Suess', Dr. Suesses', oh wait, Dr. Suess's (yes I had to look it up) birthday without a red and white hat. But since they weren't allowed to wear hats today, I came up with this quick and simple little hair clip. 

She was happy as a cat that swallowed a canary (too far?). Well, she was smiling and proudly walked into school sporting her Dr. Suess accessories. If anyone is interested in a quick photo tutorial on how to make this clips, just let me know and I will post it. 

And with that I will leave you with my favorite quote from Dr. Suess himself..............
"In my world, everyone's a pony and they all eat rainbows and poop butterflies!" - Dr. Seuss

Oh wait, that probably isn't appropriate. Let's try this one................
"Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You."- Dr. Seuss
