Tutorial on Diaper Clutch a NO GO :(

I was going to post a tuorial on my diaper clutch. I even had a request to do so (thanks rj). But I made the mistake of deleting the pictures off my camera before I downloaded them onto my computer.
But I promise that if I make another one I will do a tutorial.

More baby gifts

A dear friend of mine had a baby girl on Monday. I have put together another baby gift for her new arrival.

A lunch sack, tag blanket, bibs and a ball.
Welcome to the world Emilee Giselle.

More baby gifts

On a earlier blog I wrote about applying for permanent placement children.
We haven't found out if we are successful yet, but, one of the other couples on the course who lives around the corner get their child this week.
So I made their new boy a little gift.

I got the lunch sack tutorial here, and filled it with a wet bag, bib, blanket, ball and cream holder.

I thought I'd show you a close up of the cream holder. This multi-layered container is one that you can put beads etc in. I used it to put different creams in (not my idea) so you always have what you need on hand.
I think this is cute quick gift and so handy.

Card Making

Just whipped up a few cards for those times when you think "I wish I had a card!!!!"

First grandchild

My husbands oldest daughter just had her first baby. A beautiful BOY named Dante'.
It's amazing how perfect a new born baby is. No one has damaged their little souls with all the nastiness of the world.
I wish you love, health and happiness all your life, Dante'.

From old to new

My friend gave me an old exersaucer that needed a new seat.

So I took off the old seat and used it as a template.

And there we go. A new seat.


Miss A on the left turned 12 today. Here she is with her sisters. As you can see her oldest sister is only days away from having her 1st baby and our 1st grandchild. No nana jokes as I'm in nana-hood denial ;).
