I am waaay behind! But, I made something cute...

I FINALLY got to do some crafting today!  I made some super cute onesies (pics to come), and this Canning Jar Lantern.  Each jar on this particular lantern in a 1/2 pint and has a vanilla tea light in it.  This Lantern is only $15!  These adorable lanterns are also available to order -you pick the size of the jars, the number of jars, etc. AND I can make candles IN the jars in various scents (prices vary).  Imagine this Lantern hanging from a hanging basket hanger outside your back door or on your porch! Lovely... :)

My latest gift set...

My hubster's boss is having a baby girl, and the office asked me to put together a gift set for the mom and baby. :) Here are the bibs and onesies I did for the basket.

I also made a Cuddler ($10), blanket ($15), 6 burp cloths ($15), and 2 washcloths ($5) with a beautiful purple mum print on brown. Here's the Cuddler:

And, in honor of my little peanut's dedication day, here is my sweet Harmon!
