Baby Dumbo Baby Shower

It’s taken me a while to get my thoughts together to tell you about the Baby Dumbo Baby Shower I helped throw for one of my best friends, Lorenza.  This happened back in January, and for a long time I was really hard on myself that I’d dropped the ball with some things.  Now that time has passed and her baby boy is due to be born in 10 days, I’ve collected my thoughts to tell you the good stuff!

Thanksgiving Papercraft with Cricut

The last few years, my friends and I have gotten together sometime around Thanksgiving to have our own Friendsgiving.  I’ve never been a great cook, so creating the decor has been my task, and I do a lot of the Thanksgiving papercraft with my Cricut Explore.  I don’t remember why it started, but I now look forward to it from 12:00 AM November 1st until whenever we have it.

Handmade Gifts with Love

Having found myself recently unemployed, I’ve had a lot of time on my hands.  So I’ve been putting those hands to work producing more handmade gifts for friends in exchange for both money and thanks.  Many have involved my trusty Cricut but others are more, well, hands-on like a small commissioned cross-stitch ornament I’ll be working on this week.  I’d be happy to put these hands to work on your custom, commissioned gifts as well!
