I got an order to make a onsie and boot set for a friend of mine at MOPS. I can finally post the picture since the outfit has now been gifted to her:) The recipient is a military momma having her third boy! she is an amazing mom-just like most military mommas!! amaze me how much they do and can do-they definitely sacrifice so much for us!!
my grandpa had this chair taking up space in his workshop and he decided he was never going to get it done-so he gave it to me much to my husband's disappointment:) all I need was another project! It sat around in my shed, then his garage-finally he moved it to my craft room. Having to look at it everyday I decided to finally do it:) I am loving it as my new office/craft room chair!!!
for the passed few weeks I have been crafting away in preparation for the craft sale. It was a fun day-I got to visit with two old friends from high school. I did ok, but it was a long day after a long week-and I don't for see any slow down until Christmas!! 'Tis the Season!!
Like many of you each year I like to do a handmade ornament. I usually do one for my nieces and nephews and for my boys. This year I am using my stash of scrabble tiles. From teaching I would collect them and use them to play spelling games and other word games. My stash had become quite large!! I also like to use them for parties for beverage or food labels.
This was probably one of the easiest ornaments I have made-Joe cut the scrabble racks for me and I glues out names or Christmas words-easy peasy!
I used to love planning our family Christmas card especially when the boys were babies-so easy to pose and dress. Now they both have their own sense of "style" and their own ideas of how they should pose! I have spent the last two months trying without success to get a good picture of the boys!! One is not looking at the camera or somehow ends up not even in the picture-ugh!! I know it is just as stage and in a few years it will become easier again!
I have been trying to find places that have photo cards with multiple picture spots-it is not easy!! I have finally found my favorites over at Tiny Prints. Click over and take a look your self! They have by far the best selection and cutest cards around!! Here are some of my favorite:
I am really liking that there are so many different choices with more than two photo slots-since I can't seem to get one good picture of both boys I need a card like these that I can use more than one picture with!
