Goodies...

I know, I know -- it's been a couple of days. But honestly there isn't much to blog about when your days consist of staying in your pj's and watching daytime tv with your precious baby!
But I thought I would share some of the goodies I (well, my mom and I) have made the past week.

I've been wanting to make a sling and we used this tutorial and made it. It was a easy project and I think we'll get lots of use out of it.
The hardest part of the whole project was trying to adjust once we got him in it.
But he looks pretty snug, don't you think?!

We also made a plaque and an ornament with his hand prints and footprint. There is a lady in Birmingham that does this and my sister always does her girls and I think they are so cute and a great way to document how much they grow. Well, since I don't live in Birmingham I had to come up with plan B and that was making it ourselves. I think they turned out pretty good and it was MUCH cheaper doing it ourselves. We got all the supplies at Hobby Lobby and spent a total of around $12 for the molding clay, glaze and paint. And we didn't even use all of the clay! I'm going to do this a couple times a year!
And finally, I ordered a canvas after Kelly talked about it on her blog. It came last week and I LOVE it. I got the 11x14 and I wish I would have gotten the 16x20 I love it so much!!
Seriously, so precious!!!
Well, duty calls but I'll be back soon!
