when the scrappy bug bites...forget the baking soda

...and scrap!

Feels good, too. =)





I made the following mini-album for Danny's step-mom from when she took care of our kids during our anniversary date last year. =)


I saw this on Lorie's blog and had to try it! I'm so happy I keep all my scraps--I made this totally out of old pink, red, and brown patterned paper scraps. The one from Pottery Barn is made out of material, but paper works just fine. I sewed the hearts almost closed, then I added cotton balls, then finished sewing. There is definitely a learning curve here--if I had to do it again, I'd use all cardstock or double sided patterned paper, and I'd make the hearts bigger. Stuffing and sewing those little hearts is tough.






I did these at a crop Saturday night.

Is that a plastic lid for the round part of your mobile?? How CLEVER!!! I wanted to do that project also but didn't want to go out and buy a hoop or whatever they used for the circle part.

You are so smart!
