{Must Craft....or Die!}

Sometimes I get this crazy, thirst quenching urge to craft. Lame? I think not! Well last night I had the chance to visit my friend Tonya who is the proud mother of the cutest little baby I have ever seen! Like no joke! They were approved for adoption and not too long after that they were headed for Detroit! Collin and Tonya brought Ashlyn home a few days ago. I popped over just as soon as I could. I think I held her for an hour and a half! BABY HOG!!! I shared her when I had to! But quickly snatched her back up! Tonya's brother and his wife Megan came down from Idaho Falls and decorated the nursery for them. The news of Ashlyn came so fast that they loaded up and were off! I think it is the sweetest thing ever. The nursery was beautiful. Kinda like Neapolitan ice cream! Brown, white and pink. Megan had made these adorable crafty wall hangings. So guess what I did today? You're right! Headed to Hobby Lobby! (Curse you Dina and Bailey)

So I bought 4 different kinds of semi-coordinating fabric. I did not want matchy matchy!

I also bought 8 wooden embroidery looms in 4 sizes.

And at last a 12*18 black frame.

In total I spent $25 :)

Plain wall:

Cute fabric:


Why yes those are owls!

I cut a template out of an owl I sketched. Then interchanged the wings! I also painted to looms black. I had black flannel to back the owls.

Not bad for $25 bucks eh???

I was wondering if you accept guest posts? I have an article/event that I would like to submit in regards to childhood obesity. It is about dancing and how it can be a fun way for kids to exercise. Primrose Schools is hosting a Dance Off competition (with proceeds going the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals) for families and I think it is something you and your readers would enjoy!

I look forward to hearing from you!

Thank you,
Emily Patterson
