Celebrating my sweet {C} Peacekeeper

C's birthday cake as requested: chocolate with strawberry frosting and violets on top
birthday sweater 10! pockets perfect fpr her massive collection of hedgehogs sweater just a farmgirl with farm equipment c C We gave C a real birthday celebration last week - exactly one month after her birthday. This sweet girl of mine has incredible self control opting to wait and open most of her presents at her party instead of on her actual birthday (while we were on the road trip). This year she requested a Samantha/Victorian themed party. She gave me the details on how she wanted it to be from one of her favorite books. We did it all as she wished - minus ruining her ice cream with salt (we figured she wouldn't want that part of the book to happen 😉 ). I think she was pleased with how it all turned out.

The nine year change seems to be hitting a year late but never you mind that - she has the biggest heart I know. She is constantly looking for ways to serve others. We nicknamed her our dear little peacekeeper a couple of years back - always finding ways to end quarrels and bring peace and happiness back to everyone involved. What would we do without her? This girl is going to change this world. You just wait and see!

p.s. Rav notes on her birthday sweater here. She hasn't taken it off since she got it!

Crafting On

The act of creating, in one form or another, preserves my sanity amongst the chaos of life. This explains why I always have more than one project going at a time as well as why my housework tends to fall behind. I enjoy seeing what others are working on and keeping calm with, too. What are you creating? What is keeping you going? Snap a picture or two, post it on your blog, on Instagram #craftingon and/or Flickr and then share it with the rest of us by leaving your link below.

Working on the second sleeve of C's Camilla sweater. I am finally nearing the finish line on this one, which is a good thing because I plan to gift it to her Friday. Yikes! We are hoping to have her real birthday celebration then (to make up for the one on the road trip). Although looking at the sweater now I feel like maybe I should add one or two more repeats of the fan pattern. I already added about four extra. It just looks so short. Decisions, decisions.

What are you working on? Happy creating!
