If you asked my sister Mindy about my personality she would most likely say that I’m your typical first born: bossy, organized (ha!), know-it-all, and a planner. However, compared with my first born friends, Francesca and Keri, I am NOT what you might call a “planner.” They, on the other hand, both take the cake, literally, especially in Keri’s case.
This is the reason and my main motivation for starting my craft projects early. Yes, Halloween is several months away, but I’ve already found Emi’s costume, thanks to my new favorite crafting website. Just to make sure you love it as much as I do, here’s a sneak peek at what I’m working on this year to fulfill my new year’s resolution.
Not only is this cute and very appropriate for Emi (I probably won't have to use much stuffing!), but also after Halloween is over, the cookies can double as chair cushions. Hello? Can you say genius!
Emi’s birthday also happens to fall in October. This year, I would love to make her one of these photo banners.
I’m hopeful that this craft will be doable considering the fact that I will only have to make her two of the pennants for her second birthday! Baby steps, people.
Finally, after Halloween, it seems like Christmas always sneaks up on me. If I were Francesca, I’d be done with Christmas shopping in May, but sadly this is not the case. I figure that my summer might be well spent making some of these super cute felt onesies and t-shirts. Please do act surprised if you, in fact, get this for Christmas! To be honest, I will be surprised if you get this for Christmas 2009 too.
As promised here is my NEW favorite resource/inspiration craft site:
The site name does lack some originality, but do not let that sway you from checking out their fabulous ideas. Thankfully, most of the patterns look easy for those like me who tend to be a bit challenged in the craft department.
Happy St. Patrick's Day!
Random question: Can anyone tell me the history behind pinching people who don't wear green? A student of mine asked and I do not have the slightest idea. Bad teacher!
