What to get for the girl who has everything...

Maryn, one of Grace and Abby's good friends, had her 3rd birthday party last week. This girl has got a Super-grandma who just adores her and flowers her with gifts for every occasion. Afraid that I'd get her a repeat of something she's already got, (and continuing with my anti-consumerism kick) so i figured i'd do better to go practical...and original. And, since i like to do things that make my life even crazier, and keep me up until 2am so that I have an excuse to be cranky the next day, i thought i'd take on a little sewing project. I think they turned out pretty cute.




I was hoping to get really great pictures of them, but the wind was blowing and my girls were crying, so just imagine that these pictures turned out awesome...

Emily,
You are AWESOME! I love your "anti-consumerism kick" solution. What a great idea. I seriously need to pull my sewing machine out of the box, and put it in my sewing stand. Thanks for the happy post!

Maryn is going to love them. I miss living by you and trying to be like you by taking on all of the same projects and not succeeding like you do! You do know that both my girls birthdays are coming up right? I expect some darn cute dresses! I'm serious!

Can your daughter come to my birthday! That dress is to die for. You are so talented. Hope all those ladies are doing well.

Nice to hear from you Emily!! I was wondering how you guys were doing. Blogs are a great invention, aren't they? (and I see you have, what, 10 of them).

Anyway. These are some awesome, I mean AWESOME dresses, girl, you better start an Etsy shop soon, so I can buy lots of nice dresses from you (i would, I mean it)... and then I'd claim everywhere that I made them. :)

Oh, and Jonni says HI back to Reid.
