The Alphabet of my Labors...

One of the things that has kept me sane while Kimball goes to school here where the closest family is 3 hours away has been to keep myself busy with projects and learning new things. I always love to see my endeavors turn out in a good way. I have started taking a sewing class that is being offered in our ward, I have already learned a lot of useful skills. I made this ABC Quiet Book, and it took quite a bit of time, but that is a good thing when you have a husband busy studying every available minute. I am proud of how it turned out and I hope my friend will enjoy it and get use out of it!
Anyway thought I would share the fruits of my labors!




















I also found a fun way to paint Mya's name on the wall (just in case we forget who's room it is...says Kimball)

Look at you, it turned out great! I now wish I would have done the vegetable page, at the time we thought the pieces were to small to even know what they were, but it turned out so cute. Her room is also adorable.

What a cute book. I guess I will have to take up sewing in a few months. Whatever keeps you sane right.

That might be the cutest quiet book I have ever seen. You did a great job! Is Gretchen doing it in class? I thought the class was aprons?

I love "The Call" by Regina Spektor!! So good! Do you have her other album? I love it. Some of her lyrics are a little freaky but great music. I love the piano in her songs.

I had fun playing with Mya and the ABC book. Much cuter than the pictures. You couldn't buy one as cute as it is. Mya's room is darling as usual. so is Aiden's. That little Aiden face is darling. He tries so hard to talk--moving that tongue around. I enjoyed my time with you guys
