i totally copied!

I thought that this year would be a good year to start 'sibling gifts' between my children. Mostly for Olivia. She is a fantastic gift-giver and always has a card ready for any occasion. Smile. At first I thought I would just let them each choose a small toy, but then I ready this post and it totally clicked! Handmade sibbling gifts! So, yesterday and today(last minute, hey? maybe you should ask about the project happening as we speak in the basement...just the way we do things) I only have a photo of the gift from Levi and Olivia to Sadie, the other 2 are wrapped already. A tutu!! Olivia had a harder time making it than I had anticipated, but I thought it was tons of fun! And SO CUTE! Go ahead and check out the original post(http://www.designmom.com/), but for those of you with little girls, you will likely be getting one or more of these item sometime, for birthdays or whatever, so don't bother making them yourself. Smile again. We made a fabric sack for Levi to tote around all his small cars and I made 2 ribbon covered flower headbands for Olivia(I think those are my favorite) I didn't involve Levi in that project since he can't keep a secret if his life depended on it! Maybe next year. Here is Olivia really concentrating to get the ribbons even in length.
All done.

That is so sweet! I love the idea of handmade sibling gifts. Writing that on my brain to remember for later.
