Someday Crafts

Well somehow I accidently hit publish post. So this post is out there...I was using it as a file of crafts I think I might like to do. If you want to do any of these....lets have a craft day!!! :) and at the bottom is something I did!

Burlap Wreath from Craftaholics
She makes it so you can switch up the flowers easily for other seasons...I'm not sure what to. Maybe different colored flowers.

She also made a Christmas Wreath using white burlap and some cute buttoned red flowers.

Look how cute this girl's beaded necklace is! From the Idea Room. I'm totally making these!

I also want to make these little peg dolls. I wonder if Boo will even want to play with them or not but I want to try. I can't find the original blog that I found them but I found this blog that shows you what they look like...not as cute as the ones I saw but close enough. The blog I saw them on even made super heros and other dolls that were appropriate for boys.

So I've been working on a quiet book for Boo. I've been making it using paper, foam and felt sheets. I knew that if I tried making a sewed quiet book I'd never do it. So far it has helped out Sundays out TREMENDOUSLY! And I need any help I can since its just me during sacrament meeting anymore. I just make a new page every so often, stick it in a sheet protector, slip it into her quiet book binder and were good to go.  I know they won't last forever but thats ok, its doing it job now and that is what my sanity needs. :)  SO here is my favorite page that I finished up last night.

I just use magnets, so it isn't absolutely pretty but it works. I haven't let her play with it yet but hopefully she loves it. (wishful thinking maybe) :)

I think your quiet book is lovely. I can't believe you freehanded all that stuff. Mine would be a mess. I think magnets or velcro are the best idea. I like the Halloween wreath the best. You could do all sorts of fun things with that.

Boo's quiet book is adorable! I want to have another craft day. I was thinking of hosting a craft morning/playgroup at my house maybe next Tuesday. Would that be a good day for you?
