Oh. My. Gosh.

Inspirational! I just moved, so I am going to be gazing longingly at your beautiful craft room as I try to figure out how to squeeze some craft space of my very own.

That is absolutely beautiful! I am gonna bookmark this, as we will soon be buying our first home and everything is so "builder basic" around here right now.

You should be very proud...
3  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Crafty Charitable/Social Causes / Re: scrapbooking with teenage mothers on: January 31, 2008 06:56:29 PM
How sad that these gals can't seem to tap into their feelings enough to put it into words! I am step-mom to a teen mom, so this one speaks to me (she has a lot of other issues, too).

You might want to check out sites that have writing prompts. One I like to use is http://www.scrapyourstories.com/lifewriting.htm.

Another idea could be to search sites that have page galleries (like creativememories.com and show the girls really nice pages that revolve more around the journalling than the "bling". Maybe they will be inspired?

One more idea, while I think of it. You could do a theme class, where they are forbidden to use photos for one page. The page could have a theme, and they could all bounce ideas off of each other. I did one that was "Things I will miss when you grow up". I put a list of things like baby kisses, being able to fix owies with a hug and a kiss, etc. Another page idea could be "The story of your birth". The girls could tell about their trip to the hospital, how long labor took, how they felt when they got to see baby for the first time. Or they could write "Dear Baby" letters entitled "My Wish for You". They could write a letter to baby telling him/her what their hopes and dreams are for baby.

Good luck!

Love these, but like so many have already said, my girls would be at my knees if I didn't have some support. Grin

Still, awesome work!

The pattern calls for elastic, but it was really easy to do it. You just crochet around the elastic loop to finish all the way around.

I have decided that the smaller ones need some bobby pins or something, though. The weight of my hair keeps pulling them off the back of my head. Cheesy

I am jealous! That looks so cool, and I never seem to have "odds and ends" that look good together color-wise. I suppose I just have to let my stash grow a bit, huh?

I love the colors! The little one will drive mommy crazy when she hits the "I know my colors" stage. Grin

All three of them very pretty! 
Did you do them in chain stitch?
I thought about knitting a snood for some time, haven't gotten around to actually doing it though. Really feel motivated to give that one a try now!

I used a dc mesh stitch. I couldn't believe how quickly they worked up once I got going!
Good luck doing up your own. Smiley
