Well while I'm at it I'll post a few pictures of what I've been doing lately. I was asked to do the beads for our stake girls camp. They thought it would be a great idea to have like 30 different beads for each girl and there are 180 girls. So that has been my task for the last three months. I'm finally finished and here they are!!!
Spiritual beads for scripture, prayer, testimony and journal

And of course as always, I've been crafting. Here is my latest project. Our friends, The Hamberlin's had an adorable little boy. Tisha had told me about this cool frame that she wanted to make for her baby Tanner. When Andrew and I saw the idea we fell in love with it and decided to make two of them, one for the Hamberlin's and one for Summit's room. Here is Tanner's...Summit's isn't done yet. The first one is always the hardest so hopefully his will take a little less time. One reason this frame is so cute is the amazing font I used. A dear friend of mine is an incredibly talented font artist and I'm so grateful for her sharing with me. This font is called P.S. I love you. I've had a few people comment on it so if you are interested you can find it here. http://shop.scrapbookgraphics.com/manufacturers.php?manufacturerid=53 They are super cheap to buy and they make any craft project, Relief Society handout or digi scrapbook page so much cuter. Thanks Islandmom!
I think that sums it all up. We're staying busy but loving life at the same time!

A tradition in Andrew's family is that each member of the family gives a stocking stuffer to each other member of the family. This year I made ornaments for everyone. I noticed the kids didn't have ornaments with baby pictures on them so I made them each one. This is Alex's.
I was just released as the 11 year old girls Primary teacher so as a Christmas/Goodbye gift I made each girl one of these mirrors. The mirrors were $2.99 at Ikea. I painted the edges of the mirrors brown and then sanded them to give them that worn look. Then I decopauged scrapbook paper on the front of the mirror and decopauged the words "Daughter of God" on the front. They turned out so cute!
Here is my PEACE sign I started last year and finished this year.
I saw a cute idea on a blog before Christmas and I had to do it. So here it is....I opened pop-top cans with a pampered chef can opener that uncrimps the edges. Then I cleaned them out, refilled them with candy and fudge, decorated the outside with paper, ribbon and stamps, and then I glued the lids back on. So here is one example. Then when the person receives it they open it with the little pop top thing. Cute, huh?!
