I thought that this was a super cute idea to keep my crafty spirit going!

Caitlin did this on her blog, and I won (I think, I'm number 3 to comment) so here goes....The first five people to comment on this post will get something made by me!

My choice. For you.

This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:
1. I make no guarantees that you will like what I make!
2. What I create will be just for you.
3. It'll be done this year.

The catch? Oh, the catch is that you must re-post this on your own blog (eventually) and offer the same deal to 5 of your own lucky blog readers.

February Mommy Daughter Date With Mia

So, while Erik and Emma went to the museum, read about their adventures below, Mia and I decided to get crafty!

Mia told me that she would like to make a covered photo album for Emma's baby pictures. Yes, you read that right for Emma's baby pictures. Mia has one that my mom made for us, and Emma has been asking for years if we could make one for her.

I make so many cute little craft projects that I give away for gifts that I never seem to have the time to finish a project for us. I guess it's the case of the shoemaker's children going without shoes!

Yes, I'm a slacker mom because it still was not done! I did have some scrapbook pages put together for her book being stored with all the other pages that don't have homes. So, hopefully I get some points for that.

Anyway, after we dropped Erik and Emma off at Cal State Mia and I came home to go through the tons of material I have to find the best one for Emma's baby book. We finally decided on one that was white with tiny yellow flowers on it because Emma's favorite color is yellow.

We then ran up to WalMart to get some ribbons and flowers to make it look super cute. We finished it and even got Emma's scrapbook pages put in. So, Emma now has her own baby scrapbook, thanks to Mia!

If we had to wait for me she might have had to wait until she got married!

February Daddy-Daughter Date with Emma

In February, it was Emma's turn for a Daddy-daughter date, and she chose to go to the same art museum that Miriam had gone to last month.

This time, we got a picture with the Mummy coffin.

These were some ancient games that Emma was excited to get her picture taken with. If you click on the picture, you can see Emma has brought a little green man with her that she is showing around.

Now this may look like I was just excited to take another picture of the ancient rat trap, but really Emma was excited to get a picture of the little green man with the ancient little blue man.

You just have to love Emma.
