she's crafty and she's just my type

yep i'm talking about sarah my sister in atlanta. she is just my type, so i surprised her and showed up at her house last week, for the week. it was so much fun to be with her and her family, sure do love them! before i went out sarah had been telling me about this craft she had seen and she mentioned that she thought i might like it. boy did sarah hit the nail on the head, i went i learned i fell in love. it was just my sort of project, i'm so excited about it now.

blake, keri and spencer's baby was kind of how the whole thing started. i wanted to send them something personal and different, what do you get for the boy who has it all you know? so i decided to try a couple of onsies and a blanket, sorry for showing everyone keri, including you, before it actually arrives but i couldn't wait to show what sarah showed me.




i could be getting a little crazy about it but i just love the finished product and it's something that i, who wasn't crafty until 5 days ago, now just want to craft it up. uh oh......




so i want to share a few things that we did together and see what everyone thinks, so please tell me some feedback if you don't blog email me, maybe whoever leaves a feedback or email will be entered into a hat and who ever riley draws i'll send a shirt to you and if your feedback says you don't like it i'll send something else. yeah that sounds good. okay so we mainly did onesies but i'm going to do it on toddler size shirts too, aprons, we also did a blanket and even made a poncho. i think i might even try to make a little business out of it if enough people are interested in them, so they're all original and not cut and dry so i could do different things, they could be really cool unique gifts too, anyway so tell me what you think.

I think they are very cute. GO BUFF!! I am always looking to personalize gifts. I love receiving homemade gifts as well as giving them. I always feel like we have so much, but a homemade gift is a personal touch.

I think they are very cute. I think I will have to order one for my sister who is going to have a baby. We don't know what she is having yet so I will have to wait a little bit. How do you do it? It doesn't like very easy to me and I don't think I would be able to do it.
