So excited! I am getting my first nephew or niece in December. I will have plenty of time to make all of these for them by next Christmas!

Thank you, Mary Kelly, for taking pity on me... I'm sure glad 'somebody' does. You have no idea how MEAN Jess is! *sniff*

I've had your blog in my reader for the past few months, and I must say that I save almost every one of your entries! I really love the tutorials that you post, and I'm even going to try to make about 10 of the refrigerator frames. What a great idea!

Please keep the tutorial posts coming. I really liked the bib tutorial but I think it might be a bit advanced for me. If you see any easier than that let me know!


Jessica Jones said...

How about this bib tutorial?

Amber said...

Awesome! Thanks so much!
