"Gobble Till you Wobble" Blocks

Okay. . . I think it is safe to say that I am obsessed with making blocks.

I can't stop.

I keep thinking of more and more blocks I can make.

Photobucket

And. . .

who I can make them for!




Thanksgiving Day Table Crafts-Kids Project

Thanksgiving Name Plates

Using dried beans, scrapbook paper and cardstock, these name plates are easy to make.

Thanksgiving Napkin Rings

Here are the directions. I used clipart for the hats to make the project easier.

Photobucket

We've got some family coming into town and the kids and I thought this would be a fun way to decorate the table them.

Baby Kadence-Sneak Peak

Kadence is 12 days old and is so precious and tiny. I think I could have just held her the entire time! There is just something about a newborn that is so special.

Photobucket

Maybe it's because they are heaven sent. . .

Photobucket

Or maybe it's because they depend entirely on you for everything. . .

Photobucket

Maybe it's because you made them from scratch. . .

Photobucket

Or the instant love you feel for them. . .

Photobucket

Maybe it's because they have made your family complete. . .

Photobucket

Or maybe it's because they are so innocent. . .

Photobucket

Maybe it's because they mean everything to you. . .

Photobucket

Or maybe, it's all of the above!

Photobucket

Thank you for a special session!

"Whatever I have" Yarn Wreath

I was putting away the Halloween decorations when I came across a lonely wreath. It used to look like this. . .

Photobucket

But had since been striped of anything sparkly or lovely.

Since, I didn't want to go to the store to buy anything, I just looked around my house and gathered whatever I could find or had leftover.

Photobucket

I found some leftover yarn and ribbon.

Photobucket

I also had some flowers from another wreath that I took apart.

Photobucket

I love taking apart things to make other things. The fun can never end when you do it that way!

Packard Family Sneak Peak

We LOVE family!

Ben's cousin, Lisa and her family came into town for some family pictures.

Where did we go???

Dah barn.

There was another photographer there with a family of 8!
Even though the other photographer had a big crowd, we kept out of his way and were able to get some pretty fantastic pictures.

See for yourself. . .
