If I need to or want to do something besides all of that, I have to be really organized and creative in order to squeeze something else in to my schedule. One of the things I wanted (and had) to find time to do was to make a "Star of the week poster" for Rachel. I should have planned better, but I didn't so it was done at the last minute, I was running around the house like crazy trying to find stuff to create this.
I used to scrapbook, but I haven't done it for such a long time. I haven't kept up with the latest "cute stuff" in the scrapbooking world. Although, I am liking this banner that I created...
We don't take news paper, but I wanted the "effect", so I copied a few dictionary pages and cut them into triangles. Then, I took shoe polish cream and lightly smeared it on the paper to make them look a little worn out.
Rachel loved her poster. Making stuff like this doesn't seem that important, but watching her smiling face saying, "Thank you mommy!" sure made me feel like I accomplished something big. :)
Now is the time to share your creations with everybody!
1. Please post something YOU made. It doesn't matter if it is crochet, quilt, clothing, anything would be fine. I want to see it! If you use someone's idea or patterns please give them the rightful credit.
2. Link to your specific post, that way it is easier for everybody to find and read it.
3. Please grab the "Tea Rose Home" grab button, and link back from your post. If you can mention the party in your post or place the button on your side bar, that would be great! I want more people to have a chance to come and show off their creation.
