Dale got me a ridiculously large tin of bag balm. I use this as lip gloss, so this is like a 5 year supply.
Dale is a little excited about his favorite candies!

Brighton got to play with her tricycle most of the day in some nice sunny weather (and a return of the hat and gloves).
There's plenty more photos that Dale uploaded to an album so check it out!

I used Amy Butler scrapbook paper (can't get the fabric, I'll get the paper!) and it was a fun floral print- anyone who knows Amy Butler knows that all her prints are AMAZING! There's rhinestones and a feathery red ribbon to hang it from. I really wish you could see how cute it is, so cute I almost kept it for myself...

Ok, I totally copied this one- not my original idea! But I saw this at an antique fair a little over a month ago. So many things were so beautiful, but I couldn't bring myself to buy anything knowing I could attempt to make it myself. So I made this ornament, and then made one of my own design: Project cost: $2 per ornament.
I also saw some gorgeous cake stands and pedestal bowls at the antique fair. So I went to the second hand store and found some pretty silver and porcelain to glue together!And here's one finished! I didn't get around to the other... maybe next weekend. Total project cost: $3.
And here's one that's been sitting around my craft room for a year! I bought this fabric because I just fell in love with the printed lace on it. I figured I'd make B a dress with it. Then I found a 2T onesie in her closet. Where did that come from? Project cost: maybe $10?
onesie, and sewed a skirt to it. Then added a yo-yo and orange button. I loved this dress and B got a lot of compliments at church. And a few requests to spin :)
There are tons of other things that I started but haven't finished. What a great weekend! I've really missed sitting in my craft room for hours on end.
