Hello my dear crafters! How are you doing? Last week on May 10th is my wedding anniversary! We had a really nice evening going out to eat at a super-classy restaurant. It was a surprise for my husband!

This is a baby book on shapes that I made from felt. I thought it was not difficult to make, but it is a lot of work. It took a few hours, and that does not include a night for the glue to dry. Continue reading “A felt baby book”

Hurray, Lily is born!

Merry Christmas everyone!  Nice that you come to read my post on this Christmas time. I’ve been so busy that I barely have time to craft!  And there are still many more days of partying to come!

This time, I have made a baby card for a little girl named Lily.  Although she is not born on Christmas day, I still thought it was fitting to show a baby card today. This card has a lot of fine details and steps, so it’s semi-advanced and took a while to make.  Here’s what the card looks like.

Without further ado, my latest card!

I’m at a point in my life where many of my friends and family are having babies!  So I feel like all I make now are either birthday cards or baby cards.  My latest card is for a baby girl named Lotte.  It’s not your traditional baby card in the sense that it’s not pink because it’s for a baby GIRL.  I generally prefer baby cards not to be pink or blue because it’s boring that way!
