A little thank you gift.

Here is a little thank you gift I made for someone who did something kind for me the other week. I found this cute label at Lolly Chops and printed it out and attached it to a little bag of treats. Who doesn't like treats?

Brownies in a Jar

I am in charge of Activity Days at my church and we meet twice a month at my place to do some fun activities. At least I try to make it as fun as possible so the girls would always enjoy coming. Well a few months ago, one of the girls had a birthday so I decided to give her Brownies in Jar. I then decided that these were too cute and yummy that it would make all the girls jealous. So I decided to make all the girls one to celebrate everyone's birthday for the year. YUM! How fun is that!

The normal recipe says to follow all instructions, then fill the jar 1/2 way full with the mix, bake as directed. This took me an HOUR for the brownies to bake. But it tasted so good!

I also found these adorable labels from a website called Lolly Chops. These labels are too adorable and you can download them for free! I just added pretty little ribbon for the finishing touch.

Baby gifts

Here are a set of baby items I made for family and friends who had baby's these past months.

I started off by making baby burp cloths by using this tutorial from Michael Miller.

I also made baby blankets to match the burp cloths.

And of course I couldn't resist making these cute little stuffed animals using the Simplicity pattern 2613!

I also had made a rosy pink cutie for my sister's friend, who had been trying to have a baby for a very long time and finally had.

All wrapped up and ready to be delievered.


Christmas Quilt 2010

I have 5 siblings, 2 in laws, and 5 nieces and nephews and to make Christmas easier on our checkbooks we decided to pick one name "out of a hat" and give a gift to that person, instead of every member in my entire family and their kids. So this year I picked my oldest sister and I decided to make her a quilt.

Luckily we picked names in the summer so this gives me plenty of time to start quilting.

The pattern that I used was from Moda Bake Shop, called "Off the Grid" Sliced Nine Patch Quilt.

I absolutey love it! The only complaint I have about it was that I wish I had more material to make it bigger. But my sister said she loved it and thats all that matters.
