Occasionally, I wish I was, but in reality, I know that it would take up a lot of my time, be another thing to spend money on, and would add to the clutter in my house.
Therefore, I'm am mostly at peace with my lack of craftyness.
Last week, though, my mom asked me for some ideas for a baby shower gift. So I googled around for some ideas, and found a cute one that involved rolling up onesies and receiving blankets, putting them in a bakery box, and calling them "cupcakes."
I rolled up the diapers, diaper cake style, to go in the basket to be the base for my flowers. All the material things - the onesies, bibs, washcloths, and receiving blankets were rolled up into a flower with one of the baby utensils rolled halfway inside to be the "stem." I used cupcake liners and coffee filters around the rolled up flowers to add to the flower look.
Then I arranged my "flowers" in the basket. And then....
Obviously it was nothing spectacular, but I do think pictures don't do it justice and it turned out much cuter in person.
If nothing else, it was cute enough that my 8 year old wanted to keep it for herself, even after I informed her that it was just baby stuff and diapers. She still wanted it.
What was the best baby shower gift you received OR what is the best baby shower gift you have given??
