I hope this is the right place to post this.........it's kind of silly, but I had to share. My girls and I made these last night. This is something that me and my mom would do every Christmas when I was a kid. I hadn't done it in forever and thought of it the other day and immediately felt bad for waiting so long to make these with my kids. My oldest is 16! Oh well, better now than never. It took me a little while to find the dollies. I used to always see them at Wal-Mart, but couldn't this year. I ended up finding these at Hobby Lobby. Anyway, it's very simple and a good craft to share with the little ones. You can't mess this up and they always turn out pretty! Save the little bits and use them to make larger snowflakes or to dot around the big ones. I just taped these up to our front door. They are fun on windows, too. I hope you enjoy! This does get messy so have your vacuum ready.......you'll need it when you're done.
The one thing that I managed to sew while I was pregnant was this sling. I used a pattern by Elizabeth Lee Designs. It was an easy sew, except that I had to stop every few minutes and stand up because my back and ribs hurt so bad from sitting at the sewing machine! It truly turned out to be quite a horrifying sewing experience because of that pain, but the end product was well worth it. I wore it recently when we went to the mall and several people commented me on it. My major splurge with this was the fabric. I fell in love with the amazing fabric by Amy Butler and once I saw it, it was the only thing that I could thing of until I bought it. I was very PG when we took this photo and so excited to have finished the sling that I had to try it out with my little Shih-Tzu, Sophie. my other baby.
Hi everyone! I stumbled upon this site last week and I've become totally addicted to it! I am amazed with all of the craftiness that goes on here and I can't wait to join in and share. I love to craft, obviously.......big faves are paper crafts like scrapping and stamping, sewing, and I can do one stitch with knitting. lol Anything where I can be creative and I'm happy. I've started a blog, but for now it's still pretty boring so I might share that later.
