A baby shower/baby gift recap …

I was having trouble figuring out why I was so weary this past week and then I thought about all I’ve been working on in anticipation of the baby shower I hosted last weekend and realized that might be the cause … Here’s one more glimpse of my handmade treasures that brought me so much happiness while I was working on them …

The invitation!

Diaper wreaths!

One wreath had crocheted booties … 

And one wreath had crocheted bath “scrubbies” … 

One book mobile,

three decoupaged bird houses,

and three bird houses made from folded book pages!

Then there’s book garland

and paper covered composition books for favors for the guests!

For the baby, crocheted mock crocs

and crocheted cowboy boots!

and crochet appliqued onesies!

Photos of two more projects coming soon … a book page wreath and a book page posy for the mommy-to-be!
