Rainy days and Mondays.... oops today is Wednesday

Rainy days and "Wednesdays" won't get me down! LOL!! I thought today was a good day to post the above card!! Ducks and frogs like water, so here are a couple of more cards to share! I hope you enjoy them. Have a wonderful day.

Found more to share!

As I was looking through some photos, I found a couple things I did recently that I can share with you. One is a bookmark that I made for the ladies in my Bible study. We decided to sponsor a little girl from Haiti. It is only $80 a year. We sponsor her through His Hands for Haiti.
I made a bookmark for each person with Lyndachka's photo on it.

We also have a secret pal program at church. The lady I had likes frogs, so I made her a card using an old calendar.

The lighting isn't very good, but there is a tree frog hiding in a flower.

Macey in her coat

Hello! I know I already posted a photo of Macey in her coat that I made her for Christmas, but I had a couple better ones, so thought I would share them anyway.

Now that school is over, hopefully I will be doing more crafting and have more photos to share.

I have been working on knitting a prayer shawl and am almost done - not bad for something I started a couple of years ago - or more!!! I have lots of unfinished projects..... I will never run out of things to do.

I hope you enjoy the photos of my "grandbaby". I will be taking care of her for a few days later this month.

another hat

Since there was another teacher having a baby at school, I made one more Jester hat (pictured in previous post). I was disappointed that I messed up in a couple places, but I guess that is just a reminder that I am an imperfect human. It reminds me of what I have heard of the Amish, though I am not sure if it is true - they make a mistake somewhere on whatever they make to show their imperfect human nature. Only God is perfect. It certainly is humbling though, making me not get prideful of what I make! I so want it to be perfect! I have not been doing any crafting lately ~ life has been too busy, or I have spent free time reading. If you haven't be sure to check out my other blog and my pictures of Haiti where I recently spent 2 weeks. Part of my heart is there!

Two Completed!

So many of my projects, I begin and don't finish. I made a goal this past week to knit a baby cap. Actually, it's more for a toddler, but I am giving it as a baby gift. My goal this year it to complete some unfinished projects. I am also working on a "prayer shawl" which is made from
blue/white/yellow variegated yarn. Here is a photo of the little boy's "jester" hat. The pattern is from Bernat (Baby Jacquards).

For Christmas, I made my mom a blanklet/snuggie - i.e. fleece blanket with sleeves. I found the pattern at
I made a few personal changes, but here is my mom in the final product!

Christmas Crafting

I have been crafting a little. I've made a couple of knitted dishcloths, made some Christmas cards, and have done a couple of sewing projects. Yesterday we celebrated Christmas with my son & his wife. I made a fleece jacket for their dog, a little Min Pin. They sent me a picture of her in it. It's a little blurry, but it gives you an idea of what it looks like. I think I need to add some more velcro. It's a bit big for her. She's such a little diva.... I found a tag that says "Princess" and just had to get it to add to the collar!
Merry Christmas!

Childhood Memories

On one of the email lists I am on, we have found that many of us loved playing with paper dolls, especially Betsy McCall when we were young(er)!! What fun to take a walk down memory lane! How about you? Did you play with paper dolls? Did you have favorite ones? What special memories do you have from your childhood days?
