A very crafty family.

Has it really been three weeks since the baby shower? Which means it has also been three weeks since I mentioned posting these handmade gifts from the shower. My life is flying by and I cannot keep up. I haven't even shopped for Christmas gifts yet (totally unlike me, I don't know what my deal is this year).

Even though it's 1:15 AM and I should be sleeping, here are some pictures of things my family made for the baby. Needless to say, we're a pretty crafty family.

What can I say, I got it from my momma.

"A" I painted for the baby room door - I bought the wooden letter from Joann's (my mecca) and seriously want to buy one of each letter and do an entire alphabet. Like, really. How cool would a wall of letters be? And the "A" would have apples all over it, "B" for bees, etc. etc. but I think for the time being I can find better ways of spending $130 (26 letters @ $5 each). I.e. buying Christmas presents. One day...

Also how beautiful is the name Amira? Seriously I die.

My aunt Carol knitted (or is that crochet? I have no idea, but should definitely know these things since I know how to knit) this baby's blanket - notice the star & moon shapes in it. Talent? Check.

Again, no idea if this is knit or crocheted, which is totally embarrassing. But my mom made this blanket. Betsy's (baby momma) favorite color is purple and - funny story - my mom started this blanket for Betsy like a zillion years ago but never finished, so instead she made it for the baby.

Wonder who made these baby headbands and clips...?

Ok, you're going to have to take a deep breath for this one. It is literally that cute and I almost cry looking at it.

My mom made (again, knit? crochet?) this sweater, hat, and booties. Do you die for the Peter Rabbit buttons? I want one in my size.

Lastly, my sister framed the invitation I designed. We're real big on framing stuff (probably since said sister owns a frame shop, but also because framed things are awesome, no?). I love the purple & pink striped frame. Presh, eh?

I have a few DIY's in mind that I will hopefully be posting over (read: after) the holidays.
Hooray for a week & a half off work!

Until then, cheers, Merry Christmas, & Happy New Year!
