Today I just had some pictures I wanted to share that didn't make it into any of my posts, but all link back to something I've done in the past. I've entered one of these pictures in Shutter Love Tuesdays at Trendy Treehouse. If you have a moment hop on over there and enter your own picture. (And if you are feeling really generous, leave a comment and vote for my photo :)!)
First, a few months ago some friends and I made some dolls for Sarah Hanson's Dolly Donation Drive. This is Monkey after she found the box full of dolls waiting to be sealed and sent off in the mail. She volunteered to be the surrogate Mommy. As you can see from the third picture, she wasn't too happy when she found out these dolls had mommies and daddies waiting for them in Haiti.
Monkey and the tutu that I made for her second birthday . . . although she found it three weeks early. She wears this to the park, on wagon walks, around the house . . . you get the idea.
And the last set of pics shows off Monkey with her painted wooden people and the fabric doll house I made her for Easter. In this first pic, she was trying to sit in the house with her dolls. Hmmmm . . . just a smidgen too big I think.
I try to teach my kids good manners. I'm not sure how successful I've been though. But when I hear them say "please" or "thank you", I know my persistence is paying off. I try to use good manners on my blog too . . . giving credit where credit is due by linking back to projects or ideas from other crafty bloggers. I ask you to do the same. If, in some rare instance, you are inspired enough to blog about something I tried or use an idea you find here, please link back to me (if it's my idea) or the original blogger. Feel free to use my original ideas and tutorials for personal use only (gifts or self) not for profit!
