Friday night on "The Goodnight Show", Nina & Star made paper butterflies out of coffee filters, pipe cleaners, and water colors.

So on Saturday evening, we made some too.


I love using coffee filters for crafts...they soak up the colors and swirl them around and always look so pretty.

It was a fun craft...very simply and quick. The girls made butterflies for their Sunday School teachers, for Gary & Courtney, for a few of their friends, for Nana, etc.


After watching them make 5 or 6, I couldn't resist anymore and I made some of my own. When I was done I turned mine into a mobile which is hanging above the kitchen table. :o)

And I also finished my very first crocheted item of clothing:

I was so happy that I was able to actually follow the pattern. Crochet patterns are so much harder for me to follow than knitting. So I usually don't attempt them. But crochet projects are also generally faster than knitting, and with every other person I know having babies right about now, I needed something quick and gift-able. So I guess whichever baby wins the race and is first to be born, will be the one we give this dress to.

I can't keep up with all these babies though, I wish people would have spread their pregnancies out more. It really would have helped me out!
