Home made gifts.
My friend Tirzah had a beautiful girl a few weeks ago. So that gave me an idea of making her something special.
I wanted to spell her name out with some wooden letters and then decorate them. So I took Josiah and Alina to Hobby Lobby to pick out some nice wooden letters and some nice "girly" paper. When I found the paper isle, I just layed all the letters out on the floor and tried to figure out what paper I liked. Luckily one of the workers there came into the isle and asked if I needed some help and she helped me decide on what to do. It was a lot of fun to do.
Then I thought, well...I have to make something for the boys too. So I found this wonderful craft made with the cricut on the "cazy for crafting" blog. I had so much fun making it. I bought a bag of Easter Chocolates at World market and filled it up. Then of course I had to buy a pretty little dress for baby Cora. I found it at Target. (it has little tulips on it to remind her of me:)and some cute little hairbows. Ok, I know...I went crazy. But I wanted to do something special for them-since they are so far away and I miss them:( I hope to be able go visit them sometime soon.
