Share and Tell

Here's a few things I've been up to.

I did this stitchery last year, bought this square frame and painted it black, then I didn't actually put the stitchery in the frame! Oops! I decided to finally do it and here it is! I sanded the edges although its hard to tell, but I think it turned out well. I'm still wondering if I should glue something on to the frame (?) but I haven't had any ideas yet. Let me know if you do!

Moving along...
Here's the scoop on this little piece. I was at Michael's the other day and I was checking out the clearance spot when I saw this. I thought hmm, what could I do with that? (That's a common question I have..."what could I make with that?") Anyway, Justin has occasion to missplace his keys, name tag, wallet, etc. So I decided this would be perfect for a little valet for him!! It was all of a dollar and the perfect size!
So I sanded it and then painted it with two coats. Then I even glued felt to the bottom four corners because I think it will go on a wood nightstand and we don't want it to scratch.

Here's the final product. I also sanded these edges just for fun. Now I know why it was a buck. It's not entirely flat in the middle! ha ha. Oh well. As long as it has a use, it works for me (or for Justin). Hopefully we won't have any more stressful moments in the mornings before Justin heads to work with this little addition.

Now how cute is this little outfit? It's a 12 month outfit I bought for Molly. I made the little clip for her hair at the top right. The outfit has little brown hearts on it, so that's what I did. I used pink and brown felt and my mom even had a pink button. Voila!

And here's a recent family pic we took at Ryan and Becky's after the baby blessing. I just thought I'd throw it in here. Does the wind ever stops blowing in Riverton/Herriman...?

So fun and cute...like always. And no, the wind never stops blowing in Riverton. At least as long as I've lived there.

Cute projects and WAY cute outfit! My suggestion for the frame: I think it looks fine how it is, but my sis has glued buttons on to frames and they are really cute. If you can find like orange buttons or something that would be fun! But honestly, it doesn't need anything!

Hmm, good idea Karen. I'm sure you could find some really cute halloween buttons...I'll have to look into it!

where's your kid in the last picture? I love all of your little projects. You are just too crafty for me. I would rather spend the money to have someone else make these things for me because I am not as talented as you! P.S. I like the frame just how it is:0)
