House Update: I've been a bit MIA lately. First, we had to get the house ready for sale, now we need to start looking for somewhere to live. The newly painted door and shutters must have worked. The house should be under contract tomorrow morning and if everything goes through, we need to be out by mid-June!

With everything going on, I haven't had much time for big projects. My son has been obsessed with mustaches lately, so I decided it was high time to make him one:

Felt, cardboard, scrap paper, wooden skewer, hot glue gun, scissors, pencil

Sketch out your mustache, cut out your pattern:

Cut out your felt mustache:

Cut out a cardboard mustache:

While your hot glue gun is heating up, eat some dark chocolate:

Glue the cardboard and felt pieces together:

Attach the wooden skewer to one side:

Reinforce with a small piece of felt:

Now allow your mustache obsessed boy to model it:

Let others get in on the action:

Jellybean, Grandpa and yours truly getting in on the fun. :)

Wish us luck on finding a new home and Have a Happy Day!!
