Card Books


Saw this idea on pinterest and loved it! I used the template from the blog to cut out the shape from cute scrapbook paper. Then I used stickers to spruce them up! This top one is full of all the cards we got throughout our pregnancy and after Edrie was born.


These two are for Christmas cards. I love the idea of bringing them out every year to look through! I made one for all of our 2011 cards and then another that I'll fill with just our family cards! This was a great 20 minute project to start and finish after the baby went to bed. Made me feel very accomplished! Looking for more quick, satisfying projects!

Tiny Mitts


I'm kind of obsessed with how these turned out. They were such a quick and satisfying project. They still took me a month to complete (I have an infant...don't judge!) but I LOVE THEM!


my mom bought me this yarn...I need to make some booties or something because I have a lot left and it knits up so nice!


Don't you just want to eat her up? It is such a joy to see that face everyday! She likes her warm hands too! 

More details on ravelry (if you are dying to know what the yarn is let me know and I'll dig out the tag)

Block Ornaments


A few of my friends hosted a craft day last month and we made these awesome photo block ornaments. You can find the tutorial here. I LOOVE how these turned out. I made mine for two babies who were born this year.

Salt Dough Ornaments


This was another project Jenni and I tried to complete with the kids underfoot. It went pretty well! I love how they turned out! Jenni just made a quick batch of salt dough, we rolled it out and stuck the kids' hands/feet in. Then we made a hole for the ribbon. I baked them for about a billion hours at 200 degrees.


I sprayed them with Shellac and put a little glitter to fancy them up! Excited to have these to compare to next year!
