I made this for my niece and her husband and sent it to them for Christmas. I've been wanting to make this for a while but paper crafts have kind of been put on a back burner. It was nice to sit down and make something with paper. Hopefully this is the first of many.

While my daughter had her arm in a cast last year we had to find loose fitting shirts with large arm holes to fit her cast through. At the time of year she had her accident most stores were clearing out their summer ware ready for fall/winter which made things a little difficult as we were still having 100 degree weather and the stores had long sleeve tops. I managed to find this sleeveless top in Walmart in the boys section. My daughter being a very girly girl was not impressed. I found some cute ribbon however and put it around the sleeves. she was much happier with it once it had been suitably girlified.

Last year my daughter wanted a summer themed party/sleepover at our house. We had everything planned out for the weekend after her birthday. On her birthday we took her to the American Girl store in Dallas. Little did we know that the very next day she was going to break her elbow while doing gymnastics in our family room. So needless to say the party had to be cancelled. Thankfully she is fully healed now and looking forward to having the birthday party she didn't get this year instead.
blank note cards, stickers and a You're Invited stamp were used to make invitations

I have been grabbing small windows of time here and there to teach my daughter some sewing basics. starting with an American Girl craft, a t-shirt bag that she also colored herself and a pouch for her recorder for school. She has quite a steady straight stitch these days. I'm very proud of her.
