Best part about Crafting

Hi everyone and Happy Monday!  This past week I was able to help a good friend of mine announce to her family, that she is expecting her first baby. I am so happy for her- and was glad to be able to help make it a special announcement. To me, this is one of the best parts about being a crafter…getting to help others make something special!

I was in such a hurry to get the items to her in time- I forgot to take pictures, but she snapped a few shots with her iphone for me! PHEW!

She wanted shirts for the 5 cousins- who lived in another state to say, “I’m finally going to have a cousin to visit in Iowa”  They are huge Iowa fans, so I threw the Hawkeye emblem on there too–it almost made me sick cutting out those birds (just joking).

This is the littlest of the 5 showing off her shirt 🙂  The boys got black shirts with yellow writing. (The Hawekeye colors)

For the mommy-to-be’s sisters-she wanted “Aunt” cups- since they are already aunts, we needed something a little more general.  So, the cups say “Aunt is the name, spoiling is my game.”  I made 3 different color cups, and used outdoor vinyl, to ensure that the vinyl stayed on the cups better.

When I shipped the cups, I had to take the straws out- and her hubby put them back together (so we won’t tell him that the straws are upside down) 😉

But, I couldn’t just make her sisters cups–I wanted to make her a special Mommy-to-be cup too 🙂

She loved it!   I only wish I had been this ‘crafty’ when I was pregnant with my kiddos! 🙂
