Idea for how to turn down a high school dance date

My son was asked twice in the same day for the same girl's choice dance. We have always told our kids to go with whomever asked first. He felt bad that he had to say no to one of them. This is what we came up with to answer.

He hand wrote a note that says he is "blue" that he cannot go to the dance with her because he had already been asked.

Missionary coming home

My son recently returned home from serving a mission. I decorated our door for the event. I am happy with how it turned out.

I have been in a crochet mood lately. I find it hard to crochet unless I am in the mood. I started making dishcloths, but found some coasters on pinterest. I made them and dishcloths to match. The dishcloths look like hot pads...oh well.

Not the best picture, but you get the idea.

I made these for graduation gifts again this year. I think they are so cute

I also did these. I bought the wrappers on Etsy

I have a co-worker that is moving so I made this suitcase for her. I put travel games and treats inside.

Wedding Gift

I wanted to give money for a wedding gift and was trying to think of a cute way to give it. I remembered I had purchased the pattern to make this car gift card holder and thought it would be perfect to hold money too.

The money (or gift card) goes in the trunk. Cute huh?

Flower Coasters

I saw a link to the pattern to make these coasters on Facebook. I thought I would give them a try. My first one I followed the pattern exactly, but it left a hole in the middle of the flower. I made the second one but I started with a magic ring instead of how her directions had me start it and no hole in the center.

They were easy to make and I like them. My husband on the other hand wasn't so sure about them. He didn't think people would know that they were coasters and he wondered if anyone would use them. Tell me your thoughts. Would you know? What is a cute way to tell someone it's a coaster if you gave as a gift? Would you use them if you got them?

Thanks for stopping by.

Amigurumi Spring Bunny

I think I am obsessed with crocheted animals. I think they are so cute. This pattern is by A Morning Cup of Jo and its really easy...until you assemble. Like the reindeer I made earlier, I struggle a little to put it all together. Ive gotta figure out an easier way.  But, despite my struggle, I love the bunny. Cute huh?
