There are two things in which I've complained of having minimal (or no) talent: Crafty stuff and doing Savanna's hair. It's hard enough to do the hair of a 15-month-old girl while she's wiggling and twisting and trying to "help" or trying to slap my hand away, prompting me to wonder if it would be easier to braid the hair of a bucking bronco. But I'm also just very new at this doing-little-girls'-hair thing, and so I was surprised and pleased to master this 'do a few days ago. Next-I have a friend who had a baby yesterday, and named her Ava Layne (I LOVE that name!!). Tomorrow I'll get to see her (I'm almost breathless with happiness at the chance to hold a newborn again.....), and I hope we'll get some photos if everyone's up to it. But today I tried my hand at some sort of crafty-ish ideas I had for a gift, and I was pleased as punch with the result! The lettering on the blocks is pale pink, not white.
Customized the photo album with ribbon and the card-stock letter on the front; did the lettering on the blocks and tied the teeny tiny bows. :) Her nursery, which is ridiculously awesome, is kind of a Paris & polka-dot theme (very classy, nothing overdone) with black, creme, and pale pink colors.Oh, and did I forget to mention that I have a photography blog now? I did. I did forget. Well, it's HERE, and although I don't have work often enough to post something new every couple of days, things seem to be picking up--fingers crossed and arms folded! I'm not quite finished posting all I want to post, so keep your eyes peeled for new stuff, if you're interested. ("B" for blog! Actually, it's a gift for this darling boy's mama.)
