things i've been making lately


watermelon juice...yummy. don't be deceived by the spoon, i totally used my hands to smoosh the melon through the strainer.

i made two of these handsome little guys for friends' babies.

i cannot get over how cute his little tail is! you can't see it but he also has a little spikey mane going all down the back of his head.

okay, so technically i didn't make this - but i did get a new haircut! praise Jesus for Great Clips' yearly $5.99 haircut sale!

this one is guido the frog. he's a handsome little guy too. right now he greets all of us housemates when we walk upstairs, but his future home is with my future nephew - my roommates have joked that i'll have crocheted a whole zoo for the newest alter baby by christmas - we'll see.

using the leftover persimmon colored yarn from the giraffe i made myself a little hat!

(not a terribly attractive picture of me or my housemate, but it shows the hat's color)

and of course, another new cake, this one was a mocha chocolate something cake for my friend megan's birthday. i can't remember the name. it was coffee flavored so i didn't touch a bite, but i heard it was yummy.

so many things! i love your new hair cut! i hope to see it in person before it grows too much. and i love that you make cakes for your friends even though you don't like the taste. a true friend! :) and maybe instead of your friend's baby's your friend's who are moving to africa (far away from you) could have a little animal? just a thought.

Wow - you have been busy girl. Make sure you tell Emilee how to make those animals, because I want some for Eden and the boys.
The new haircut is adorable, and I am thinking that watermelon juice sounds delicious. After I finally get moved and settled again, I am going to have to get creative myself...

Cute hair!! And you're now officially kicked out of the "I can't wear hats" club, with a loving boot of course!
