More Beaded Socks

Beaded Fancy Socks

Our ward had a Super Saturday today. They had lots of things to choose from, but this is what I ended up making. They are socks with crocheted edges and little beads strung on them. I thought they turned out pretty cute and I know Lindsay will love them.

Paper Hand and Footprint Turkeys

We babysat several extra kids yesterday and it was kind of crazy. I was trying to keep them in one spot and contain the craziness to one area, and do something fun too. We made these cute turkeys. The body of the turkey is their footprint and then the feather are 6 hands. I let the kids pick three different colors for their hands and then they decorated their feet. Landon wasn't too excited about his so I decorated his.
