No ponytails!

Arianna does not like to have a ponytail, but she is ok with "piglets".  So, here are the first pictures where she actually did not take them down within 5 minutes.  She looks so adorable.  The only problem she kept moving so much it was hard to get a good picture, but you get the idea.

We went to Crackle and Barrel for breakfast.  It is one of my favorite restaurants and Arianna likes it too!  She was playing and singing.

Then, we went to Jo Ann Fabrics and she loves crafts... I know not a big surprise there. I hope she keeps liking it as she gets older.

And finally Target,  we knew one day she will want her own cart and she did.  She saw it and did not want to let go.  She is a proud owner of a shopping cart now.

52 projects - #14 Loom Scarf

 For this week, I focused in finishing my second scarf that I made in a loom.  I tried a different stitch because the first one (even though I love) the stitch is too loose for a baby blanket that I want to try.  Then, I found out a different one that has a tighter stitch so I tried it and loved it!   I know I should think Spring, but I am happy that I finished the scarf before the winter ;)

Someone asked me about the Swap Craft, there are different ways, but the one I am doing you make your project for 30 persons and mail it to one person, that person makes your package consisting of 30 things from the other people that participated and mails it to you.  When you send your package to her, you add some money for the shipping back... sometimes it is hard to let go of your creations, but I kept one for me and I think that hopefully they will like it and use it and appreciate it like I do.  I  view it as sharing something from me to you.  So, in that sense it is easy to let go.

WPP #17 Betsy in a hole...

Oh Betsy, I know you want to help me with my future project...
