A whole new world

Well, phew.  Time to dust off the blog.  It’s been an incredibly crazy time here and as things have slowed down I’m finally getting back to some crafting.

First of all, let’s take a look at this little cutie that at first has cut out my crafting time.  

While she has taken away some of my crafting time she has given me a whole new reason to craft.  Headbands

Baby legs

And little skirts (added the ruffle from my experience here) …sorry, this is from the phone so it’s a little fuzzy.

(the onsies were a gift from my baby shower)

So stay tuned for more craftiness from me as my little one gradually learns to take naps in her crib!


Teacher Appreciation Bookmarks

Last week we sadly attended our last BSF group of the year.  They have such a great children’s program and have taken care of my boys so well.  It’s amazing to hear the songs that they sing…think 2 and 3 year old singing Holy, Holy, Holy at the top of their lungs on the baseball field, the lessons they’ve learned, and the joy they had attending BSF each week.  I am truly appreciative for all they have done, and continue to do in our life.  As a little thanks, I made the teachers each one of these bookmarks.  I found the tutorial over on Skip to My Lou and it was a quick and easy project to do.  The most difficult time for me was choosing which fabrics went well together.  (my constant dilemma)  The rosettes on the top of bookmarks will probably find themselves on the top of more projects of mine!

I included a cheesy note in with the bookmarks and had the boys sign their name.  A great gift for any reader in your life. I’m having some camera difficulties so please excuse my pictures for the next few posts!
