{ cards and holiday fun }

Thank you cards for all those who helped us out with our move- we couldn't have done it without our friends and family! Thanks Everyone!


A few fun crafts for the holidays that I'm just now getting around to posting! I found this cute hanging heart for Valentine's day that was super easy to make, but looked really cool because it had so much dimension! 

A few cards just to say "HI" and "I'm thinking of you" and a cute baby card for my friend Brandee who is having twins! Lastly I made these fun paper flowers out of my scalloped circle punch for St. Patrick's Day and made them into napkin holders! So nothing big, but definitely fun and quick projects that keep me creating, which makes me happy!! Enjoy! Let me know if you'd like the patterns or directions to the flower or heart, and I'd be happy to post them!

{ Crochet Flower Clips }

Oh! I almost forgot to tell everyone about the new crochet flower hair clips my Mom and I are making!
A month or so ago my Mom had knee surgery and had to stay off her feet for about a week. So she decided she had to keep herself busy while she was sitting there and started crocheting flowers. My Mom does the crocheting and sewing and I put the clips and cardstock backing together. 
We were so excited with how they turned out that we gave one to my friend, Bri for her baby shower and she loved them! 

Everyone said we should start selling them, so we're doing just that... they're in a consignment shop in Woodinville called Cruzin' Kidz  
so go check them out! Here is a picture of our clips in the store! (above) So exciting!

If you're not in the area and would like to purchase one, then email me at: amjlmp@gmail.com
These not only look cute as just hair clips, you can use them on a crochet beanie hat or with a crochet headband or scarf. Or you can clip it on a sweater or purse! They really work for any age! Hope you enjoy them as much as we do!

{ Quilted Taggie Blanket }

I really need to work on this whole blogging thing because I've been totally slacking! I still have been doing crafty things, I just haven't found the time to blog about it!

Anyway.... my Mom made a very sweet, quilted taggie blanket for Jenny for Valentine's day and so I thought that it would be fun to make one for my friend, Lisa's baby shower. With my Mom's help, this was the final product! I absolutely love flowers, (as you all know) and polka dots so I just might have to make one for myself because I'm so in love with it!

You can see the back in this photo with the oh-so-soft minkie.... I just love it! And of course I had to make sure everything matched! I love baby showers, especially girls! Probably because I've got the whole girl thing figured out, I'll have to work on the boy stuff! There just aren't very many boy accessories like with girls, you know? Oh well, I guess I'll just have to get more creative!

I just realized how many times I said "love" and how many exclamation points I use! See I did it again. Oh well, I guess that just shows you how much I enjoy crafting and creating and just life in general, why not put an exclamation point after everything if you're happy? That's what I do at least. I guess I love exclamation points too! Well, I've gotta run and get more packing done since Jenny is taking a nap and Angie is having fun at Nana's for a couple of hours. Oh how much I appreciate friends and family... I never would be able to pack and move within a week without their help! Thanks everyone!
