That's why I am so proud to post about what I did this weekend. As you probably know, my husband is currently unemployed which causes us to be on somewhat of a tight budget. I can't just run to Target and Rao's or order cutesy presents for friends. However, one of my dearest friends is about to have a baby, and I really wanted to make sure that she had a fabulous baby shower. Under normal circumstances, I would run across town and pick up something cute and way too pricey at one of the local baby boutiques, but that just isn't a possibility for us right now, so what's a girl to do?
You guessed it! I got crafty this weekend... Here are some pics of my gifts to Carson Joshua:
A Cowboy Kinda Diaper Cake
His Name Plaque
So truth be told, Matthew helped me with his name. I made these for both of my girls when they were born, but I used a stencil to paint the letters. Since I didn't have the appropriate size stencils for these particular frames, I just got my amazingly talented husband to draw the letters for me. Thanks honey!
And speaking of how talented my husband is, I leave you a picture of gift he made for another of our friends' recent baby showers. Their nursery is pirate themed :)
Until next time...
