Recent Crafts

I've fallen behind on posting, so here's what I've been working on.

First, I got an order for two ribbon belts like the ones I made my daughter's for Christmas last year. I really love these belts. They are a bit monotonous when sewing, but they just turn out so well. I want to make myself a purse like these!!! Here are several pictures of the 2 I recently made.
And here is my new wreath! I got the idea from another blog, Faith, Family, and Frugality. (Okay, honestly I got the idea from my bff, Cerise, who had posted it on her "to do" list. And she had gotten the idea from their blog!:P) I really did NOT like my wreath at first. It just wasn't turning out the way I had pictured it in my head. But I decided to finish it anyways. And while it still wasn't what I imagined, I was accepting of it. Now, once I actually hung it on the door and took a step back, I was ecstatic! Being on the door the wreath just seemed to spring to life and full beauty and became even better than that junky one I had imagined up in my head! I still remained skeptical for the first few days, thinking no one else would feel the same, but man this wreath has fully grown on me! I am so ready to make another wreath, but I do not want to take this one down!!!
And just cause I do love each of these girls! Here's the girls who demand so much of my time every Spring and Fall! I love everyone of our WILDCATS! They are truly a joy to be around and every Winter and Summer we find ourselves missing them more and more. (Lucky for us, our daughters have take to inviting the whole team over for their birthday slumber parties this year. One in the winter, one in the summer.) Most of these girls have really started growing up together. We only had to add 2 girls to our roster this season. They've bonded so close on the field. Ask either of my daughters who their best friends are and they may mention one or two girls from school, and then they'll light up and run through the whole roster of their softball team. I truly hope these girls continue to play, bond, and grow together for many years to come.
