Kids' Crafts

The girls recently made necklaces for a couple of their friends who were having birthdays (with Mom's help, of course!). We went to a locally owned bead store to get the supplies. They picked out all the things the wanted on the necklaces, and here are the results!

Olivia's necklace was a little simpler (she's only 5!). She picked out a pretty butterfly charm, and then pink, blue, and clear crystal seed beads to go around it. I think it turned out really pretty! She was happy with the results.

Beth Ann's necklace was a charm necklace. She picked out 7 different charms that all had different meanings. The horse represented the girl's spirit, the heart in the envelope was because she was sweet, the guitar was because she rocked, etc. I can't remember what they all stood for, but she wrote it all down in a card for her.

Baby Sling

I finished up a baby sling yesterday, and I love it! I got this fabric at Denver Fabric a couple of months ago. I love it. My husband modeled it for me because it looked better with his t-shirt than with my very loud maternity shirt that I was wearing! LOL. Louis approved. He actually begged me to take him for a walk in it. :-)

Here is an up close picture of the fabric.

More cloth wipes

With all the chaos of Trey being laid off and me doing temp work, crafty things have pretty much been put on hold. Finally though, with Trey having a job, and me trying to get things back to normal, I have pulled out the crafts again! Yesterday, I whipped up some flannel wipes for Baby T out of the left over flannel from pajama making. It's not much, but it's a start!
