Girly girls

My son has a girlfriend.  It’s true.  Her name is Jo.
(Well, her nickname is Jo.) She is an older woman.  In fact, earlier this month she turned 1.

So, for her birthday, my sister and I decided to make her a shirt.  She’s kind of big for a onesie now.  She’s in 2T. There’s a reason she and my little man hit it off.  They’re both giant babies.

And insanely adorable, of course. (more…)

Mother’s Day Cards

For Mother’s Day this year, I decided to make quilled cards.

Quilling is relatively easy, once you have the right tools.

But they’re pretty. 🙂

Easter Cookies!

Tomorrow is Easter, so to celebrate, my sister and I decided to make some Easter-themed sugar cookies.

We’re still honing our skills– we’re definitely still amateurs, especially if you check out some of these cookies!

We did our best, though, and I thought we should share the results.  I think we’re getting better.

We made several different types of cookies, just to play around and see what we like.

First we have the chickies.
