Keepin' Up with the Crafts!

Well, due to some sick people in the family, (why is it that Brad never gets sick with us?!?!), I didn't keep up with my workouts last week. Hopefully this week is better! But I DID make another craft today, so that has to help balance out my resolutions. Right? RIGHT?!?!?

I made a baby blanket today for one of John's friends who is turning one. Her monster-themed party is Saturday and I found really cute monster fabric when reading through the million blogs on my reader. So I immediately headed over to JoAnn's and bought some supplies. Even though I have made a blanket before, I am considering this a 'new' craft since I haven't used ric rac before, much less HUGE ric rac! I combined some ideas I saw online and the tag blankets I made to make a cute monster blanket for Miss Meadow! It isn't quite as big as I would have liked, but it is a good size for Meadow to use as a comfy blanket when she is relaxing or watching tv. Well, I guess good parents don't let their one year-olds watch tv...hmmm...

So, without keeping you on the edge of your seats any longer, here is my THIRD new craft for the year 2010!!!

Even though I posted this before, I PROMISE I am making some cute a Valentine's double-duty craft. That may be not for another week or so, but I am hoping that turns out cute! Keeping my fingers crossed....


  1. cute! I'm positive Meadow will love it!

  2. Too Cute!!! You are so creative!! I love the fabric and the blanket!
