Wedding Gifts

So I forgot two projects that I have completed! I made a little decorative thing for both my brother, Ryan and his new wife Cheryl's wedding and one for my little sister, Athena and her soon to be husband Matt. I couldn't take much on the plane so this is what I decided to make!

The "B" is for Ryan and Cheryl and the "E" is for Athena and Matt.

Harford, CT

Ok, so for those of you who don't know, at the first of the month (of June) Brent got transferred up to Hartford, CT. So we moved with several other couples up to Connecticut and that is where we are currently living. I will give more info and more updates soon! I promise it won't be as long this time.

My latest projects!

So I have been promising to update my blog but just haven't taken the time to do it. I thought I would start with the most requested subject...the projects I have been working on. I still need to finish some but here you go! (Sorry they loaded in backwards order. The first pic is the last project I am working on.)

The first two pictures below are my first attempt at making a purse. I am not quite finished yet but I am still trying to figure what else I want to do. It isn't perfect but I learned a lot from making it and learned things that I would do differently.

The next picture shows some the letters I have been making. I got the idea from Make It and Love It, but instead of making them bean bags, I am making them stuffed so they aren't as heavy. I am going to make a few more sets so that I can give them to my class and they can spell words with them. They don't take long to make and mine aren't perfect but good enough!

The next several pictures are tutus that I made. My friend Ashley and I made a bunch one day. They are fun and easy to make! I think I want to add more ribbon and stuff to several of them. All of these are different sizes as well, even though you can't tell from the pictures.

Below is the picture of my first project. While I was student teaching, my cooperating teacher used "Mr. Spacemen" for the students to help them space their words correctly. I decided that I really like the idea and so I made enough for my classes plus some for classroom use. I think they are super cute. I will have the students color theirs' with crayons (not markers because that will rub off as they use them.)

So that is all I have for now! I will post more as I get them. Enjoy!!!
