I have been up to some new crafts this year. If you’ve checked out my Etsy shop you will notice I found a new love of sewing. For now I am just hand-stitching toys and garlands but you never know where it will go.
Another thing that has occupied my dwindling free time is busy bags. Moms across the nation are hooked on making busy bag for there little ones. Here are some photo puzzles I made last week. I made several painted ones but failed to photograph them.
They are just fun, educational toys you can make for little money (hopefully). These are made with craft sticks. I just printed off the photos on regular copy paper and glued them down. after they dry you can cut them apart with a craft knife and write on them. I want to do the frogs on lily pads next to let Carter practice more counting objects. Go here to see that project as well as many others http://therigneys.wordpress.com/2011/08/26/toddler-busy-bag-swap/
Next will be canning season..so you will not hear from me for a while again. Have a great Summer.
