I have been single handedly supporting the United States Post Office lately. Or, to be more accurate, Dennis has, since I don't work outside the home and I just enjoy spending the money he makes! :-) Today two boxes were mailed out. The first was sent to Bundles of Love in Minnesota. It is for low income families for their babies.
These first four blankets were made with squares sent to me by other ladies in an online charity group I'm a part of called AC4C. (All crafts for charity)
They are sometimes a bit crooked because the squares are made by different people and don't match up exactly, but they will still keep a baby warm won't they?
The next two were knitted by me. I also sent 12 baby hats that I forgot to photograph. Please forgive the shadows and glare on my pictures. Once again I remind you all that I'm not a photographer but at least you can get an idea of what I want to show you. :-)
The second box sent out today was to Taci for her project for Brazil.
Eight baby hats...
A lavendar sweater.
A blue and white sweater/hat/sock set.
A little girl set.
Blue and green blanket.
Thank you Taci for letting me be a part of helping the babies in Brazil. Your heart is SO big and I'm proud to have you for a friend.
Then, yesterday's mail brought this sweet Valentine's card from Teresa. She designed it herself. Isn't she talented? She also made the actual pin that is on the card.
Beautiful handwriting and sentiment. I'm so glad we're blog friends too Teresa!
This is my handsome hubby putting in new light switches and a timer on our outside lights. See the heart on the wall? They're hiding everywhere!
Look what I found today? I know the current fad is to drink from canning jars. However I've been drinking from them for a long time. Today I found this neat spout and straw. I like it and it's easy to clean. Silly thing to show you but it's the small things in life that make me happy.
I'm into a count-down of days until we see Miss Piper. 11 more days! When we face-timed this morning, Piper and her Mama were getting ready to go to the airport and pick up her other Grandparents, Dennis & Marilyn. They get to stay for a whole 3 weeks! I can't wait to see everyone. I miss Mandy and Piper something terrible, even though we see each other online at least twice a day. It's not the same as getting a real hug and I'm so ready for one.
I hope you're all having a great day today. We have no snow and 53 degrees...I'm a happy girl.
