Projects

I thought I would show you all what I have been up to lately! I have my creativity bug back again and I am on fire! I made this adorable little owl out of felt for a cell phone cover.

Because I am only 5'2'' I can't lift my child out of his crib or place him inside, so I use a stool. I found one on a garage sale and re-covered it with Amy Butler fabric which I adore.

My niece Alisha is visiting from Wisconsin and the other day we made homemade paper. We had so much fun and these are the two that I made.

Daniel volunteered to man the station for a relay for life event for his work. He stayed out all night. Ben and I came with him for the evening and LOVED it. I had never been to one before. They started with a prayer and then had all the cancer survivors, wearing purple, take a lap around the track. Then they took a second lap with family members. Then everyone could start to walk. There were tons of booths and they were selling things and it all went toward finding a cure for cancer. I got a shirt that says "I hate cancer" and Ben got a stuffed monkey. Daniel, Ben and I walked a total of 22 laps for the night. When it got dark they had a lighting ceremony where those who have passed from cancer each had a lunch bag with a candle in it. They all lined the track and during this ceremony a bag pipe player played Amazin Grace while they were all lit. It was such a good experience that we are going back every year from now on no matter where we live! You all should look up when they are having one in your community and attend! You won't be sorry!

That picture is adorable. Like a little zombie or something. I didn't hear about this experience. That sounds great. So it was in Branson I'm guessing. Sounds very touching. You are just so creative and talented. I'm jealous (:

I'm very impressed with the stool cover, very cute. I like your hair by the way.
