More Baby Crafty Goodness

So I'm really loving that Peri is enjoying doing crafts with me. It is so much fun to watch her start to get the hang of it! We've been doing some things around here to decorate a bit for St. Patrick's Day. We aren't too big on the holiday, but why not right?

So about a week ago Peri and I made green glitter shamrocks out of paper plates. She has so much fun with glitter, and it was a pretty easy thing to get going. We made two! Then about a week after that, we made rainbow clouds! I really like this craft, they look so cute! It's just construction paper and cotton balls glued to some more of that paper plate we had lying around. Then we put them on the screen door outside. Like this:

Peri is happy with where her creations ended up! 

On another note, I totally got a Silhouette Cameo (go here if you don't know what that is), and it is the greatest thing since sliced bread! We've used it a couple times already, and I'm really loving it! So far I've made a few shamrock spinners, a couple LUCKY banners, a gift box for a friend's wedding, and cut out some business cards for mi familia. A million and one uses for this thing, let me tell you.

I made one large spinner
and three smaller ones, because my nephew wanted to help make some.

I cut this one out first

Then I used the letter cutouts to make a second banner. This one doesn't look as cool with the lamp lit up, but I still like it!
