FUN GIFTS FOR FAMILY AND FRIENDS!

 
I just love this time of year when it comes to gift giving. I found a pattern on Pinterest that was for a pillow pouf kind of think for little ones...and, as you know there is a new little one in our family...so I made Paxton his very own dinosaur bean bag...I altered it somewhat...cutting out the shapes and adding interfacing and a thin layer of batting for extra softness on his little tushy and then put beans in it to make it a bean bag instead of stuffing...you can see it has a handle so he can carry it around...a thing he's in to right now! FUN!...and then I had a thought he might use it for a boost up on things like sofas, tables and over baby gates...I have to remember to bring that up to his parents...though I'm sure they will think of it themselves!!

We have these wonderful neighbors that are so wonderful...so yesterday morning I was wandering our property and found an old board...what to do...hmmm...I KNOW...I'll paint something on it...FOR THEM...they love the wild animals...so, it became a cougar stick...just an experiment...but it was FUN DOINS!!

SO, even though there hasn't been a whole lot of painting for the sake of painting...I've been a busy beaver...OH, and baking, baking like crazy...Hope this finds you all deep in the Christmas spirit!

HAPPY CREATING!!
