My nice little bro is letting us borrow his camera for the next little while so I finally have some pictures to post! That same cute bro recently returned from Disneyland and brought these cute things for my girls. The little Minnie ears are for Lilly's hair. Aren't they adorable?!

The backpack says "If found, please return this princess to the nearest castle"

Here's a few shots of some projects I've been working on lately. First I decided to make some valances for our windows. I made some like this for the windows in our front room.
Here's some pillows I made for our chaise that I have yet to recover. I decided to make pillows firts and I'll recover the chaise later to match.

I recently got into making hairbows with felt. It's been fun to come up with new creations.

Here's a bonus picture of Sophia. She got all ready for church and getting her dolls dressed up. Immediately after she was finished she informed me that I needed to take a picture so I did.

Hope you're all having a happy Monday!

P.S. Is anyone else in Utah Valley bugged by having to dial 10 digits now when you're calling locally? I forget everytime and I'm pretty sure I'm going to have to make the mistake about 1000 times before I remember. It's a little annoying!

Cute stuff! I love the backpack. The pillows and curtain are fun too! I hope the recovery is going well too. Your little girls are too lucky to have a creative mom who knows how to use her felt!!

The 10 digit dialing is so obnoxious! Aren't we supposed to be getting more advanced and not less?! How in the world do you make valances? You'll have to teach me. Hope you are getting back on your feet.

I should have looked more closely at the picture...I thought the valances looked like they were fitted around something rectangular (if that makes sense). They are adorable Jo! Good job..and yes, I could probably handle a hem if I ever got around to doing projects like you do! :-)
