Mike's getting craftsy...

Mike has gone all craftsy lately. He started making stuff for me and Maddy for Christmas about 6 weeks ago. There were lots of mystery chemicals and smells as the new artist went to work on the lanai almost every night with only a 6-pack to keep him company...and yes, that is a bedsheet over the table...


On the big day, he had made the most beautiful big cat boxes for Madison...


And a gorgeous Buddha collage for me...


And handmade crosses for my collection :)...

One of my favorite things about the holidays is all of the crafting that goes on. Here are my pumpkins...

I see beauty everywhere I look at the moment for some reason...here are the patterns that the tree frogs leave in the morning dew on our windows at work...

Craft Room

We converted the spare room next to Maddy's bedroom into our craft room this weekend!

Union Jack picture

I made this picture from Maddy's old baby clothes. I can remember how she looked in every single outfit whenever I look at it! I started an American flag from shades of blue but it's ended up in the half-finished box for now...:)

Big Cat Club

Madison and her friends have formed a club to help a local animal sanctuary, Big Cat Rescue. They are making jewelry and selling it to raise enough money to sponsor a snow leopard called Chloe. Here are the girls on Saturday with their beads and one of their necklaces. I'm so proud of our girls :).
