Hello Everyone! I got a envelope from Australia today. Inside were some bookmarks from my friend, Alicia.
They are all so beautiful! She made two for me. One with an sweet angel that says "Friends are kisses blown to us by angels." I made a bookmark for my partner with the same little quote! The other one has the cutest button flowers and rick-rack sewn right onto the paper!! I didn't know you could do that, what a neat technique! She also made one for Grace. A pretty pink and purple one with flowers. Emily's is the one with the little girl, flying a kite. Too cute! Benjamin loves his patchwork one. His favorite part is the little opened mouth face button that says "Oh no!"
They all have beautiful tassles, Emily's is beaded. Thank you so much Alicia. You are very talented! We all love them!
Here is a quick VBS update. I'm exhausted! LOL. The crafts have been so fun but this is one wild bunch of kids this year! Lots of sequins and shells flying everywhere. On Monday my hands were covered with brown spraypaint, Tuesday-fabric paint, Wednesday-sequins, Thursday-feathers. Tomorrow-who knows!! Everyone will bring home all their crafts so I will share pictures. After my nap. :0) I've also had a Coke every afternoon this week, just to stay awake so that will be a fun habit to break!
Talk to you all tomorrow.
