So here we are on the last day of the year! I thought that while I sort thru and respond to our stack of Christmas letters, I could upload some pictures of things I made for the kids for Christmas. It is obvious that my skill as a photographer has a lot of room for growth - but don't worry. I've already added that to my hopes and plans for 2012. :)
Ben is our animal lover, especially puppies and kitties. He has also coveted these buttons from my button jar for a long, long time. They are rain-bow hued in concentric circles.
And maybe this Princess looks a little creepy, but Mariam likes it. :) I did them all free-hand without patterns, so sometimes that turned out okay and sometimes that turned out scary. :)
Directions for these pillows are here. They're super easy and fun to make.
And that reminds me. If you want to follow me on Pinterest, you can do so here! It's the most fun ever.
And finally, our solution to doll clothing storage. Like most little girls, I found that Mariam tended to throw her doll clothes into a basket or bag - then she ended up not using a lot of it. So, I found some doll-clothes hangers on Amazon. They are the kind made for 18" dolls and are super sturdy, came in a pack of 12 for $6. I'd like to link to them, but Amazon is still freezing up on me. We hang them on the end of Mariam's bunk bed to make a little closet of sorts. :)
Thanks for letting me share some of the projects that have kept me busy over the last month. They were all fun to make; but I'm ready to start some new knitting projects. I'm also hoping for some reading time. :)
God bless you all. We wish you a peaceful 2012.
