Craft Hope

Craft Hope is a great organization. Nothing better than the combination of charity work and crafting! My friend is organizing some people together to make birthing kits for women in Haiti. Here's a link to the project on Craft Hope: I'm working on fabric combinations for the baby blankets right now. I can't wait to get started!

The in-laws are visiting right now to play in a pond hockey tournament with Papa B. I've been spending all my time getting ready for the visit and I'm sure I'll have a lot to clean up after they leave.

Catching up on Christmas

With all the drama surrounding the house buying and moving, I didn't get all the Christmas gifts done. So, as I'm seeing family members again I'm giving them their gifts late. This is for the in-laws. I used the tutorial found here at Explanation Required: and my Cricut. I love finding new and creative ways of using it.

Not a lot of crafting going on. We went to PA for a week right after Christmas and now I'm trying to get us settled in the new house. In hopes of keeping Peanut busy and enjoying life we made English muffin pizzas for lunch.
