I have been inspired by others who have made Christmas trees for their babies, and I want to try to make one for Meredith this year. She has never had one before. I would like to have a pink and blue theme since I love those colors together, but the tree itself MUST be pink! My dear friends Twyla and her daughter Lindsey have a blog called Two Crazy Crafters. They aren't crazy, but they are exceptionally talented. Lindsey does a lot of papercrafts and does designs for scrapbook companies. She also works at a scrapbooking store. Twyla is a whiz with crocheting. These are some beautiful baby blankets that Twyla has made, and I ordered the pink and blue one from her. I originally wanted it for a baby gift, but then I got to thinking about how pretty it would be on the table under the pink and blue Christmas tree. So, I'm keeping it myself! I have ordered things from Twyla and Lindsey, and they always include more than I order. They are just dear sweet women. Their shop of handmade things on Etsy is called Fancy That Shoppe. Their blog if filled with photos of lovely antique cards and things from yesteryear, along with their crafts and tutorials for lots of the crafts.
I ordered these beautiful Keepsake Booties from my friend Lynn in Georgia. She has a wonderful Etsy shop of handmade things, Lynn's Lovelies. These booties are made for ornamental purposes only and they are absolutely beautiful. They will go on the Christmas tree. Lynn is a romantic and her orders always include dried rose petals from her own garden. Thank you Lynn for making these sweet booties for my baby. And thank you for the cute flower girl picture that you know I would love.
