It’s craftastic!

I've worked on several craft projects lately, but many were gifts that I needed to give before posting. So, here goes a craftastic photo bomb!

I made Grams a couple reusable travel lids for Mother's Day.

This Minnie Mouse ribbon shirt was a birthday gift for Molly's friend, Sadie.

We have gotten so many solicitors lately. Between tree cutting services, home improvement services, and butchers (yes, you read that right!) all saying "We were in your area doing some work..." I had to try something! So far so good. Chad thought the sign should say, "No, you weren't just in the neighborhood!"

A reversible dress for our friends, Pete and Laura. They are expecting baby Claire in September.

And lastly, Molly and I made button bookmarks for her preschool teachers - perfect for their summer reading!

It's strawberry season here, so the girls and I went to a local farm to pick strawberries. Leah decided to make sure they were nice and ripe for eating!

Molly was instructed to pick only the strawberries that were red all over. Here she is showing off some of her loot. (Much like she did a few years ago!)

And the weather has warmed up enough to pull out the water table. The girls have played with it almost every day since.
