It Has Been Awhile!

As I typed in the address of my own blog, I wasn't sure when the last post would be dated!  It has been a long 9 months or so...starting with the unexpected death of my dad in November and ending with my husband resigning from his job and all the fun that comes with moving.  During those months of grieving and then packing, I didn't have any time to do what I love the most...craft!  

Now that we are becoming settled in our new house, I have all of my supplies at my fingertips again!  Below are some of the most recent projects I've been working on at our new zip code. 

A card for a friend, using Stamp n Up and Lawn Fawn stamps.

Our new address cards for friends and family. 

I crocheted 150 of the hearts seen on bookmarks my sister gave as wedding favors.  The stamp says, "Made for each other."

The beginning of an owl purse for my niece.  Can't wait to finish it with a lining and cute strap made just for a special two year old!

I made 10 of these mini journals for my Aunt to give to her friends.  They include different names of God from the Bible.  

And last, just this morning, I made a new name plaque for my sister.  She had one in her classroom last year with her maiden name on it and needed it revised for the new school year!

Hopefully now that we are moved in and settled, I'll have the time to do even more projects and feature them here!
