I've decided to learn how to bake!  I'm not much of a cook and I don't really enjoy it, so I let Andrew do it most of the time.  But give me a recipe for something sweet and I can follow it perfectly.  For the craft show last weekend, I made cake bite Santa hats and Christmas tree cake pops.  They turned out so cute!  The hats were chocolate cake and the trees were red velvet and they were so yummy.  Craft show went great!  We'll be having another one at my house on Dec. 12.

These are some of the wire art creations I've been working on.  I've done ornaments, packages, trees, and snowmen and I think they're pretty cute.  Hoping they sell!

Handmade for Baby

My mom and I have started doing some applique work on onesies:

on baby shirts:

and on burp cloths:

We have more designs (including a train, a crown, a puppy, etc.) and they can be done with any pattern fabric. We will also be making working with some larger size shirts and dresses soon. I am working to get a sample one of each design done so that I can post them here. Here are some up close shots of the craftsmanship:

Baby Letters

I have painted the letters of babies' names for nursery walls recently. I love how they've turned out and would love to do more like these. They are 9 inches tall and about a half inch thick. They have openings on the back for hanging. They fill up the space on an empty wall really well without being overwhelming. I can match any color scheme with polka dots, stripes, stars, paw prints, simple flowers, etc. Just ask!
