Crafting Away!

Contrary to popular belief, I do not spend ALL my time at the computer. I also sit at the sewing machine. Yesterday I made these cute little bloomers for my friend Sarah (actually She is my daughter's friend first, mine second. I keep "knocking on wood" to the fact that these younger gals still invite me to stuff...) Anyway, I made the hair bow to clip onto the headband and the leg warmers are out of knee socks. My daughter Chelsea has been making a ton of them for the new little babies who keep peeking around lately. She showed me how. (just cut the foot off and sew in elastic) And while my daughter Devan was here the last couple weeks, she and Kelli have been going WILD stenciling onesies and t-shirts with freezer paper. (Just google "freezer paper stencils" and numerous tutorials will come up. That's what we did.)
Aren't these the cutest things ever?! The onesies are for Baby Phoebe when she arrives next month and...
these are for Conway.
It is a dream come true that my girls like to do crafts. It is one BIG CRAFTING EXTRAVAGANZA around here any given day. Yes, it IS HEAVEN ON EARTH!!!
Yeah!

Swoon. I'm in love. Confucius says there is stenciling in my future.

Miss you and your craftiness.

That sounds like my house. Thankfully we have a big table because half of it is constantly covered with sewing/scrapping/card-making stuff. We just shove it all to one end and cram the seven of us around the other.
Cute ideas!!!

I LOVE these shirts!!! I really want to make some. This has my vote for the next craft night. I saw your daughter doing them when we were all over there. I saw this the next day and it made me think of you guys: http://getyourcrafton.blogspot.com/2010/05/faux-jewelry-quick-tutorial.html

So cute, I would even wear one!!

All of your crafting with your daugthers makes me wish I had more than one girl in my house. We try to do things and the boys get upset because they are bored. Thank you for doing your craft nights, it is so nice to be around a bunch of girls. I don't get that very often.
