Flower Girls

This is one of the new clips I made for the girls. I saw these in the Valentine's aisle at Hobby Lobby and knew they would be great for their hair. I love felt stuff, and these were just really beautiful. They also come in white and pink, which I think I'll have to go back and get!
Just a little hot glue on a barrette and instant cuteness! Plus, they look good with the girls' new dresses. This is a pattern that I'm working on to put in the shop. This was the trial run and I think I worked out most of the kinks. They were easy to construct and comfy for the girls, so it's a win/win! I loved this picture of the two of them. Sophie's hair doesn't look too bad!

My Baby is Growing Up!

Do you see how cute this little guy is?! He turned 1 on Saturday and I can't believe how quickly the year has gone by. He's been such a blessing in our lives; he's sweet beyond comparison and we all love him to bits and pieces. Especially these two girls! They love having a little brother, and I can't blame them :-)

This is what happens when you're making plans to take a family picture. Your 2 1/2 year old will sneak off with your scissors while you're making her chocolate chip cookies and cut off her cute little girl bangs.

What happened to the time?

My time has been fleeting! The holidays were super busy, and lots of fun for us. The girls really got into the spirit of things and enjoyed the advent calendar, as well as shopping for gifts. Nathan, of course, doesn't really get it, but he's still so cute! We got him a little dump truck for Christmas and he pushes it all around the house and is as happy as a clam in a shell. Vivian got Jessie doll from Toy Story 2 and she is so sweet with it. Always telling me Jessie is her best friend and singing "When She Loved Me' from the movie. Sophie got a Tinkerbell doll, and it's so fitting. Vivian is always saying that Sophie is a little pixie, and its kind of true! I've not been doing much crafting lately, or sewing. I finished up the last of my items for gifts on Christmas Eve. I am such a procrastinator. I total I made 2 dresses, 6 pairs of PJ pants, converted 2 t-shirts to long sleeve shirts, made 1 vinyl floating frame, and painted a large picture for my mom's bathroom. Painting was scary! I haven't touched a paintbrush for about 8 years and I stood, looking at that canvas for about 45 minutes before I touched it. I was so intimidated, but luckily it is kind of like riding a bike and it starts coming back to you! I'll try to get some pictures up.
