Birthday Pics and K art

I am still working on the tutorial but it's taking a tiny bit longer than planned,it's been a hectic couple of weeks. I apologize. In the meantime I thought I would share a couple things that are making us happy right now.
First is C's birthday pics we had done on her birthday. She's such a ham for the camera!





Next is K art spread through out our house.


Her painting wire hanging in our living room


Pictures she decorates our fridge with


Her embroidery work. She just started doing this about 2 weeks ago after seeing me work on C's crown and loves it! This is her second project. She decided this one needed buttons (thanks Erin for giving us those buttons!)


This was a drawing she made for me. She said it's a flower child. I fell in love with it and embroidered it onto some fabric. I may make it into a pillow or part of a quilt. I am not sure yet. Right now it's hanging on our wall.


I hope everyone is doing well!! I'll be back with that tutorial soon!!

I forgot to add..anyone have any extra buttons hanging around they want to get rid of? We love using old buttons for crafts :)

I LOVE the flower child embroidery. Children's artwork is always so wonderful. What a great way to preserve it.

I heart the flower child as well.. I have been wanting to do that craft for a while..is it hard to copy your kiddos drawings, did you trace it then stitch it?
Love it xx

Thanks everyone! I love how much creativity seems to be just flowing through K's veins. She is so amazing!! <3

I can't take credit for the idea of embroidering K's artwork. I found the inspiration from Soulemama's blog <3

Joyce- I got the beeswax candles from the company that makes the birthday rings (speil and holz). I *think* you can get them from The Wooden Wagon.

Ruralmama- Hi! Yeah I traced it so it would be as close to exactly the same as her artwork as possible. I had to do a double tracing job for that one. It was on purple paper with an orange crayon,so I couldn't directly trace it. I had to use tracing paper and a black sharpie over that and try to follow it then trace with a pencil the traced copy onto the fabric. It was worth it though! But I think in the future I'll try to do ones she drew on lightcolored paper. Tee hee.
