Friends Wedding

So I have been working very hard on my Pay it forward gifts but at this time I have yet to finish one. Good thing I have all year right. No I do not plan on taking all year to do these how ever other projects have just taken president over them. My oldest daughter is turning 5 in a week. I don't know where time has gone I swear just yesterday she was a baby. I can't believe she has gotten so big and I feel like I have missed so much even though I have been right next to her for most of her life. We have been planning her Birthday party together this year. She is old enough now to know what she wants and she keeps reminding me of this daily. I have been so thankful to many blogs for all her decorations. I can't wait to post pictures for you guys to see.
Also one of my very dear friends is getting married tomorrow. It isn't a big ceremony as she just wanted something intimate and only invited her sister and me to take pictures. She plans to have a big wedding in the fall. I am so honored to be invited even if I am there to do a job. lol I made here this cute subway are as a small gift. I keep seeing this subway art everywhere and just know she is going to love it. She loves anything personal or handmade. I thought I would share as I get to take part in this wonderful moment in my dear friends life. I hope you guys enjoy as this took way longer than it looks. laughing out loud.

Paying it forward

So a few days ago I saw this on someones facebook page

PAY IT FORWARD 2011: I promise to send something handmade to the first 5 people who leave a comment here. They must in turn repost and send something hand made or bought if you are creatively challenged to the 5 on your post. The rules are simple, comment, repost & inbox your address & it must be sent out in 2011. Happy New Year!

I thought it was a sweet idea so I decided to take part in it. I finally got 5 people I am not sure why it took so long as many people on my facebook know I am a professional crafter. Maybe they thought all the comments were from different people. Any who I am so excited to be crafting for these dear friends. Some I haven't seen in at least 5 years, well since I was prego with my first daughter who turns 5 this month. The two that it has been that long are also prego with their first child. I always  am up for a good challenge and love to make baby stuff. I decided to make their gifts in the order they were received. So I am really challenging my self and making lace and ribbion flowered head bands. Wish me luck and I will post photos as the projects are done. Hopefully by tonight.
