What a pretty color palette to find in these amaryllis buds and blooms!

Art Smock

We needed a new art smock in the house (one that was waterproof), and Simplicity 4286 was a nice easy pattern to follow. I was actually able to make 2 of them out of the amount of fabric it called for...bonus!

I wanted one made from laminated cotton, and Hobby Lobby was the only place I could find it. There were a few bright, happy prints to pick from, but my little girl (who's favorite color is RED) saw this fabric and it was instantly the only choice. Oh well...I just couldn't say no...but next time I need help to pick out fabric I might strategically narrow down the options first. ;)

I've got a future artist here! :)

Dolls for my Babies

I looked online for a simple doll pattern that I could make with the girls, and found a great one! Here is a link to the free pattern with detailed photo instructions.

Just a couple beautiful reminders of God's amazing creation that stopped me
in my tracks this morning. :)
