Cute as a Button...

"I like making a piece of string into something I can wear." ~Author Unknown

We're on vacation, and yes, I brought my craft kits with me. To the lake. Part of my vacation is making things. People bring books, magazines, electronics. This time, I brought buttons to make a necklace. I also have books and my camera at hand.
My son & hubby had fun swimming across the lake to those big boulders (approximately 60 yards from where I was at) while the girls and I created things.  They painted & swam. I crafted. 
I finished it in less than 2 hours with breaks in between. 

So easy. You can do this with your little ones using elastic. Try it, and let me see what you made.

BABY LOVE {three}

"Every child begins the world again." ~Henry David Thoreau

Finally posting after several weeks. If I could sew and make baby/kids stuff all day long, I would. But can't =.\  In the meantime, I was able to make a set of burpie clothes, a California onesie, and a changing pad (see tutorial here) just in time for a dear friend's baby shower.
So easy and so fun to make. I think my ultra-creative friend likes them =.) When you get a chance, check out her fabulous blog at Yellow Pajamas where she shares her experiences as a new mom to another baby boy, her handiwork, her family, her equally creative friends, and more. And make sure you let her know you're visiting.
And 3 days later (after this photo), Baby Bwuddah arrived. Can't wait to meet him soon.
"Babies are always more trouble than you thought -- and more wonderful." ~Charles Osgood

CONGRATULATIONS, PQ family, on your new addition!
