A Creative Friend!

Ok, she did it again!  My friend, Patti from work made the best baby gift for me!  I order many of my baby gifts from her now because I love the novelty of getting something just a bit different.  I've been getting baby blankets, baby outfits, baby supplies forever and I guess I've started wanting to be a little out of the box.  I want to have fun looking at my gift and I love to see the creativity that someone can have, using ordinary baby supplies and making them into a craft creation!  May I present to you the diaper bouquet!  Voila!

She has a diaper pail, diapers, baby booties, and a baby blanket in this cute bouquet of 5 flowers! See more of her creations here!

A Talented Friend

I go to work 4 times a week.  It's a great little job but thank goodness my husband is the money-maker in the home, because this wouldn't cut it financially.  I used to work between 30 and 35 hours a week, but something changed this past year (I can only guess at what) and I am now down to 13 hours per week.  Sometimes I find myself in the kitchen saying hello to my friends, the lunch ladies.  They are the sweetest gals ever!  They make the most out of the resources they have been given and honestly I think they do wonders!!  Our school is lucky to have them!  One of them makes baby shower cakes.  Have you seen these things?  They are the latest thing to bring to baby showers. You can either make them yourself or have someone like Patti make one for you.  I had her make one for me and it was the coolest thing ever!  It was the hit of the party!  Here are a couple of others that she has done recently!  If you live in Utah and are interested in having her make something for your next shower, please leave me a comment and I'll get you her info!  She's more than fair with pricing and would be happy to work with you!

A Cute Baby Shower Gift!

This weekend was filled with a couple of family functions.  A baby shower and a birthday party, to be specific!  Both were so much fun, as they always are when either my sister or sister-in-law puts them on.  They have the talent for entertaining!  They put out such a great layout of food, decorations and calm serenity!  They go about their hostessing business, looking great and so organized.   If it was me, I would be a frazzled, resentful mess.  Everything would be half done, half baked, and  in a half-hearted state of semi-readiness. No, you wouldn't want to come to one of my parties.  On the other hand, I brought the cutest gift to the baby shower. No, I didn't make it, but it seems simple enough to do.  I thought I'd share it for the craftsy gals out there!  It's a baby girl owl!  It has rolled up newborn diapers, with a blanket, bib, changing pad, socks, wash rag, little hair bows, big daisies, attached with rubber band, ribbon and pipe cleaners.  I think it turned out so cute.  I have a friend who does these little gifts as a business.  I paid $20 for this one.  It was a huge hit at the shower!   Next time I think I'll make one!
