I like to make things although I don't do it that much. I meet with a group of gals once a month to make crafts. Unfortunately it seems it always happens to be a night when my hubby is busy and can not watch our daughter, so I either bypass going or take her along. It is really hard for me to focus on crafting when Peanut is along not because she is bad...she is just busy and I have to keep an eye on the clock for bedtime. It is just hard to craft when you can't focus on what you are making. And then at home I rarely get time to craft anything. I don't have a spot where I can put my stuff so it is all put away. I hate getting it all out just to have to put it all away again. I am pretty anal about leaving my stuff out. I have to put it away when I am done so it just is tedious. Here are some neat things that I have made and thought I would share with you.
Flower cards: These I got the idea for from things I saw online. I did these during one of Peanut's naps.

The rest are things I made at craft night.
Journal: Made from one of those black and white steno books. We just covered the front with pretty paper and accents.

Gift "Purse": This was made from the bottom half of a paper lunch sack.

There are so many cute ideas out there. My wonderful Mother-in-Law bought me a sewing machine a few weeks ago. I want to make my daughter a cute little apron that I found on another blogger's site. Mother-in-law has some of the cutest vintage fabrics too. I can't wait. So hopefully soon, I will be able to post some pictures of my fist sewing project since high school. Wow! I did sew a little like 7 years ago on a quilt that my husband's grandma and mom finished for me. It is beautiful though.

That's all for now.
