Crafting With Abuela

Hi. Remember me? I'm the one that used to blog... As with most of you, I've been busy and I let other things take priority over blogging, and I apologize. Blogging comes first from now on! Ha! Anyways, for the past couple of years I have been getting together with Zak's Gramma to make ornaments for my family. And the past 2 years I've picked pretty difficult projects. I made these last year. I made one for everyone in my family (I'm sorry to the few that haven't gotten them yet. If you're reading this, I do have them... just haven't sent them).

This is Zak, Zoey and I snowmanned

This year, we made clothespin dolls. They were really involved, but with great results. I feel like I didn't do much. Abuela came up with the idea and she got the supplies. I painted the faces and that's pretty much the extent of my involvement. She made the little clothes that are absolutely adorable. They just came out so great! I want to keep making them! But come up with an easier way to do the clothes. I'm thinking felt so they don't have to be sewn. Anyways, here are some pics. I did lots more, but the interwobs are being slow tonight and I can't upload them all.

Al and Ashley Clothespinned

Zak, Me and Zoey Clothespinned (I'm thinking about cutting her legs off a little so she's shorter than us)

Zak and I in our shadow box. Zak was my favorite on to make.

Next year, we are taking it easy. Going to do a project that can be finished in one day.
