Sunshine Blanket

At this point in my life, a lot of my friends are getting married and having babies. The easy thing to do is head on down to Babies R Us or BBB and buy something useful for them. But the fun thing to do is to make them something special. I was pondering what I could make for my cousin Koren's son Ben, when Granny and my mom said that I should make a sunshine blanket! I was like, "a what?"

Sunshine Blanket - a lightweight, light colored, small blanket used to shield baby from the summer sun.

We went on down to the fabric store, found some cute animal fabric and trim, and I got to work! It was so super easy to make. I will for sure be making more of these. My mom said that Granny made me one and that she used it all the time.

There are so many things that I want to learn from my Granny. She is the most amazing sewer, crafter, crocheter, knitter and all around DIY'er that I know!

Girls Weekend

My buddies Katie and April came for a visit in January to mi casa. We went to our friend Kristal's wedding Saturday night, but we had to be productive during the day so we did a little craft. Framed letters for our names! H is for Helber, A is for April and K is for Katie Kilmer! April and I used burlap as our background while Katie went with scrapbook paper. We spray painted old picture frames and the letters. We all now have a little more decor in our lives. :)

This is the best display of our friendship :)
