The Missing Link {March 2013 Blog Link Up}

I'd like to start a monthly tradition if you don't mind... The Missing Link! No, no, no!  Not that link. I'm talking blog links!  Great posts I have stumbled upon containing valuable, chocolate-coated morsels of information.  My plan is to do this once a month.   Though I like writing about all of my cool stuff, I have to admit, there are some people out there doing some pretty cool stuff themselves...I know, it's hard to believe.

Keep in mind when you are choosing elastic however, that baby's head is delicate, so you will want something that stretches easily.  The elastic should probably be no wider than 1/2 inch, unless it is
