It was only last June when we were deep into wedding crafts. Now my daughter is getting ready to have my first grandbaby, a girl. I couldn’t resist the fun in throwing her a baby shower.
I wasn’t actually thinking of blogging about the projects I am doing but my daughter asked me to since I keep telling her about the things I’m making.
I know I’m not alone when it comes to finding a calming effect when crafting. It has been so relieving to come home from work to a project I can work on for an hour or so before crawling into bed.
I have decoration projects, game projects, and gift projects. It’s nice to have several projects to work on at the same time because when I run out of supplies, I still have something to do without having to get to the craft store.
These are the “treat bags” for our guests. I had a different idea of how I was going to do this but then I got on Pinterest. Ultimately I decided on a different bag design. Once I started creating these purses, the project evolved a couple of times. The pattern I started with became useless as I made a couple of bad cuts. It was kind of comical but I recovered and they really ended up very cute.
I started with the idea from My Chic n Scratch blog for the Hershey’s Nugget purse but what I have to put inside is bigger so I had to alter it a bit.
I’m out of ribbon to complete this project so onto the next one.
Ok, this is a little odd. I had the idea of the diaper pin game. Who know, where you get so many pins when you arrive at the party and you have to give up a pin every time you say a word. Well I saw these really cute safety pins I thought would be perfect for the game. When I went to buy them, I found out they are discontinued. Why is the picture still out there? So once I got the idea to have cute safety pins instead of plain ones, I didn’t want anything else. I couldn’t find anything I liked so obviously, glitter to the rescue! Before you worry these are blue and not pink, I actually have green ones and am working on the pink ones. ( These are actually turquoise any way.)
We are going to have a great time honoring the arrival of these wee-little one. I’m so excited for that day.
Thanks for stopping by. Happy crafting.
