Check out this super cool baby shower hosted by Clothed in Love!
I met Clothed in Love at Summit9 in Nashville. I am still soaking in all that was crammed into the three days I was at Summit. I’m sure that I will talk about that a lot in the weeks to come. Including an incredible Operation Christmas Child story. I cried a lot those three days and left with my heart absolutely full. Looking forward to putting some of my jumbled thoughts into action!
Anyway, more about Baby Watoto! Who is Baby Watoto? Great question! Check out this short video (Moses… oh my heart, his smile will melt you!)
Can you believe that it is already March?! March. Crazy.
I have several projects that I need to finish up… naturally, it was the perfect time to start a new project!
We are making educational beanless bean bags for Liberian Orphan Education Project! This project is not new to ProjectFour14; I posted a mini-tutorial here.
This project is close to my heart. There are so many layers that make this project extra special. Educational bean bags are a fun treat for classrooms that often only have one book for the entire class to share. A beautiful country, ravaged by war. Precious orphaned children, desperate to learn. How humbling that a simple bean bag set can provide such hope to children, teachers, and communities.
I wanted to share a more detailed tutorial, along with some helpful tips from LOEP.
It has been awhile since I’ve worked on the Quiet Book. Here is a page I just finished! Yooooooo Gabba Gabba!
Operation Christmas Child Collection Week 2012 was a whirlwind. I didn’t even go with my husband and boys to drop off the boxes. I was a little sad to miss that adventure, it was so fun last year. My boys had all sorts of stories about their adventures dropping off the shoeboxes at Third Baptist Church this year. A super nice guy even let the boys ride on a cart to drop off the boxes, my boys still talk about it. They had the best time.
Everything was rushed at the end, I only took one shoebox picture. This was my favorite themed boy shoebox. It is for a 2-4 year old boy. Shark flip flops, shark tote bag, Dolphin picture book, and one of my all time favorite shoebox finds… a tackle box full of hard candy and gummy worms!
Last year I wrapped all my shoeboxes with really nice double side paper, this year
My little blog has been seriously neglected! I have recently finished up a few projects…
this embroidered towel is for a sweet friend. I have really enjoyed embroidery, it’s really relaxing to me. Knitting on the other hand…
This arrived yesterday
The best package ever… every item was perfect, completely handmade, and I am thrilled that I finished up some Christmas shopping! But the absolute best part….
