Crafting for me!

I made two of these... but only one got it's picture taken...

I made these Burlap stockings for my Mom and her family.

She Fosters two eldery folks...

Then there is one for my stepfather.

I fixed the string before sending this one.
WOW, my pictures are bad.

Crafting for her

We used the boxes from our graham crackers and another to make our house.

Frosted and added this...

And came up with this!!


More crafting for Genesis.
She made ornaments for her pink tree.

We got the idea from Make and takes here.


Painting was fun too.
Then added glitter... these went out to some family members.

Over the river and through the woods...

A visit with Grandma, Paw Paw and BENJI!!

Here is Paul's Parent's and his favorite dog, no really the dog hates him. I think it a jealous thing because Paul's Mom loves her son!

Here is our gang!

Here are a few ducks and geese by the pond Paul grew up near. They were a bit overwhelming and Genesis was a bit frightened by them!

I asked Genesis if she would miss her grandparents and began to cry...

No Mama...

I will miss taking Benji for a walk...

Here she is reading him a story...

She LOVES this dog

and the SWING!

I recently won some of these Journals, I can't take a picture...They are wrapped in the closet for Christmas! I can't even remember which ones I got but I know they are cute. Here is a sample:

I also one this Jumper from this etsy seller. Genesis has wore her 3 times it so so warm and comfy. Do you think I got a picture of her in it... so I snagged one. Isn't her little daughter cute too?!?

Gingerbread dress

A quick Birthday gift for my daughters friend.

I had some of this Timeless treasures fabric left over and I whipped up one of these again. I only lined the bodice again. Had nothing to reverse it with that really coordinated.It is a size 7 and looks so big to me.
My husband said don't add anything to it. It will look like a craft...this is his way of saying less is better. Any opinions. I will be adding Gingerbread buttons to the straps.

Here have some leaves!!

Here's a new jumper I wipped up with a pattern that I just WON!!!
Download Today - Make It Today!
I have wanted this pattern forever!

I did alter it some. I just made a boice lining. I didn't have enough of the fabric for the inside and it would've been reversible if I had. I had gotten this idea from my Marieke pattern.

And this was my first attempt at the bias tape. It turned out good and easy, but when I attached it I missed something. I will try it again. It looks great anyways. I am making another one VERY soon as a Birthday gift for Genesis little friend.

Oh yeah, can you see her little braided crown in her hair?

She loved it!
