The Good Life Including a Bookmark

I've made a couple of projects recently that I would like to share with you!

The first is a little embroidery that I made for my brother. He's leaving "The Good Life" and heading to California to go to Bible college out there. We are all SO proud of him and I couldn't be more excited to see how he grows and changes. It's an exciting/scary time for the Wolfe family.

I made this for Brian so that he won't forget that he has so many people in Nebraska who love him very much.

The next project is a felt bookmark that I found on Pinterest. It was SUPER easy and took NO time at all!

I used gray felt for the front and mustard yellow felt for the back (you can't see the back in any of the pictures, sorry!)  I embroidered only the front piece before using hot glue to seal the sides. Make sure you leave enough felt unglued so you can slide the corner of the pages into the little pocket!

They're fun and a great idea for little gifts!

Enjoy crafting!

I recently found this illustrator named Nan Lawson (you can see her website here). Her drawings are so cute and fun and JUST my style! I would LOVE to be able to draw characters like she does.

Here are some of my favorites:

 Mr. Darcy

 And Elizabeth Bennett

 The Harry Potter Trio

She also has an Etsy Store where you can find all of her cute pictures!

Day of Food

Today, Britni (one of my roommates) and I ate a lot.

I feel as though I never stopped eating.

I snapped a few photos of the highlights:

Cinnamon Roll Pancakes sizzling away

Cinnamon Roll Pancakes ready to be eaten

Spaghetti and Meatballs with Killer Garlic Bread

And then there are my fruit chews. As you can see I got an apple, grapes, some sort of melon....and a gummy bear? 

It's been a great Saturday. Thanks, Brit!
