new front table thingy

I change it every day to something new! It's so much fun!

My newest creation!

This afternoon while Gary was napping Felicity and I had a sewing date! I sewed and she just played and played and played! It was so lovely!
Ben had a pair of pants that just couldn't be mended anymore. I'd done it so many times already. So I repurposed it into a cute little jumper for Felicity!

Cute flower that was soooo much fun to make! I've got to do some more! I think she'll need a hair bow to go along with this!

And here's a picture of the back. Just a simple bow to tie it closed!

My latest find

Sometime next spring -- when it gets warm enough to work outside, this is what I'll be working on! It's an antique seed bin I got for free on craigslist!
I have big plans for it! Yes, it may end up back on craigslist if it gets the better of me, but for now -- I have big plans!
It's so incredibly heavy! I don't know what kind of wood it's made out of but it's a massive piece of furniture! I want to sand it down and re-varnish it. Repair the roll-top doors, and use it! It may have to wait until we're out of this house before it's used, but I'm okay with that! It's got so much character!

Primary Project

This past Sunday was our Ward's Primary Sacrament Meeting Program. It was wonderful! Afterwards we let the Primary teachers go to Priesthood/Relief Society, and we kept all the kids with us. We rotated them through stations of playing a Family Game, Making cards to give to the Veterans, and making a family tree. I was doing the Family Tree station,and look what it turned into!

I love how it turned out! This is just the top. I still need to put a backing, and such, (and iron) but I'm so excited to show the kids!

Each tree has a leaf for the individuals in each family. Nathan's happens to be in the bottom left corner here. Dad, Mom, Nathan, Hunter, Gary, Felicity!

20 minute project

This was a shirt that a friend gave Felicity, however I didn't like the front. I've kept it around thinking that I'd change it or cut it or do something to it, and today was finally the day! I should have taken a before picture, but I didn't. So this is the shirt inside out where you can see the swirly part that was there before along with some writing that said something like ... Stop Games Girls Only Keep my Secret -- or something to that effect (super wierd, therefore Felicity wasn't going to wear it!)
So now it looks like this! I love it, and it only took me 20 minutes!

Think twice (or more) before getting rid of things!!
