Fancy Foot Thongs

I love seeing my little bub running around in these. She looks so dainty and sweet.

Slouchy Shirt

I love this style of shirt, it's so comfy and airy. It is such a simple design, but the thin, stretchy fabric I used was hard to work with. I'm seriously planning on making several more in different colors, though!

Jumping on the "Upcycled" Bandwagon (whatever that means)

This is an on-going project for Della's nursery. I started by making buildings for a city-scape out of old cartons. Orange juice, chocolate milk, Gold Fishies and whipping cream. I used white paint and primer mix and a sharpie marker. The board I used for the streets was in the back of our Subaru for, I don't even know how long, and the wooden vehicles my sister got at a dollar store in Utah. Steal deal, right? 

And then there's the Barnum's Animal train. Occasionally I get boxed animal crackers and Push-Ups (sherbet), so I decided to combine them to make a train. I've only made two so far, but they ride super smoothly and go far, too! Della doesn't appreciate them yet, she just gets mad when she opens the box to find it empty of her favorite snack.

Kauai Waves

Art inspired by our trip to Kauai. Especially from the West shore, where we watched the sunset. The colors were magnificent, the sound of the ocean is so powerful it gets in your chest. It was an incredible experience, I'm homesick for that island!
