It seems the past few weeks I have been busy working on some kind of craft... so I decided to post some pics of my "busy" week(s). . .
Week #1: "Bible bag." I was needing a bag to carry my Bible and other "stuff" to Bible class and worship (so I can be hands free to chase Karsyn). I embellished a canvas bag (left) and then used the scrap fabric to make a matching bag for K (on right with the bow).
Week #2: "Coffee sleeves." I helped host a baby shower where we had a coffee bar. Having enough matching coffee cups was proving to be challenging, so I made little coffee sleeves to match our cute brown and green polka-dot plates. They turned out pretty cute and saved our little fingers from coffee burns.
Week #3: "Plants." I am always planting something it seems this spring. These are the cute little plants I put together... we'll see how long I can keep them alive (I seem to have trouble with indoor plants). I'll try to post some pics of my sweet outdoor beauties later.
Today's project: "Decoupage boxes." My friend Beth got me started with this fun little paper craft a while back. It's a great way to wrap cute gifts, organize stuff on a shelf, or to decorate with.
The wrapped gift. . .

We had another fun visit to Scarborough Faire with my family last weekend. Seth did a great job "jousting" and he was even "knighted" by the king! Karsyn, reluctantly, became a lady of the court as well.
Seth talks seriously with Lord Matthew about the duties of a knight. . .
King Henry VIII taps Squire Seth on the shoulders with his sword. . . (note: Seth's shirt said "squire")
Lord Matthew announces, "Lords and Ladies of the Court. . . I present to you, Squire no longer, he shall henceforth be known as Sir Seth!"
Queen Anne talks to Sara about behaving her Mommy and eating her veggies before Sara becomes a Lady of the Court. . .
Karsyn is unsure of this "Lady" stuff. . .
Lady Karsyn is presented to the court. . .
Check out my pics from last year to see some of the other sights!
