Monster Tooth Pillow

I have been looking for a box of some sort for the boys to put their lost teeth, so the tooth fairy could find them easily. Rumor has it our tooth fairy is not very graceful or sly so under the pillow would not be acceptable.
I ran across this little gem of a tute at and my search was finally over. Cute, easy to make and I love anything monster-y. YAY!

I love this time especially on all of the crafty blogs because right now is Celebrate the Boy time. Where all things boy are revealed with tutes. As with all things girly, there is plenty of it and the boy always seem to have a small section. So, having a whole month (I think) dedicated to homemade boy things is awesomely awesome.

There is Nothing Normal about Today

Just think about everything that must function properly for you to survive. For example, your kidneys. The only people who really think about their kidneys are people whose kidneys don't work correctly.....
What about driving down the road at sixty-five miles per hour, only a few feet away from cars going the opposite direction at the same speed? Someone would only have to jerk his or her arm and you would be dead. I don't think its morbid; I think it's reality.
It's crazy that we think today is just a normal day to do whatever we want with.
-Francis Chan, from Crazy Love

Funny, how we say "it's just a normal day" when a "normal day" is anything but normal.

Yes, my soul, find rest in God; my hope comes from him.
Truly he is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will not be shaken.
Psalm 62
