My cute niece, Violet. Good thing I had that frilly pink baby skirt and handmade bow on hand for our little mini photoshoot today. Who am I kidding... I have BOXES of baby clothes in storage from family. haha.

I did it! I made a mini Gospel themed quiet book. Eight pages of activities. Truth be told, if I had more pellon, I'd have had a few extra pages of something
Maybe later. 
But for now, I'm glad I finally did it. It's off my list of DIY's. These ideas came from other quietbooks in the bloggersphere,  but with my own tweeks and personal creative touches added. So, if you're ever lacking in an idea, just google it and I'm sure there's one out there for you! Some of these even had templates. Pain in the butt, but in the end, it makes life easier. Happy sewing!

Gospel Quietbook

I'm almost done with this project. Quietbook: Take 2. Theme: the Gospel.
Much smaller than the first, but much more detail than the first. Stay tuned.

a day to ride

Some days I just need to get out of the apartment and go for an invigorating bike ride on the trails. Camera bag in tow, of course. Man, I was panting a little harder than I should have been, but I loved it! Nothing better than verbally encouraging your legs(aloud I may say) to push you up the hill.
