Crafty Tuesday ~ The Hawaiian Way

Obviously we have not had many crafty things going on the past two weeks, unless you count learning how to tie a sarong over a bathing suit.

We did however partake in a lot of lei-making while we were in Hawaii.

The girls and I made leis and bracelets at the luau –


And made these cool wreaths on the boat after we went whale watching –


Addie wasn’t crazy about the leis, I think because they are a little “itchy” after awhile.

And, of course, since they are made from fresh orchids, we were not able to bring them back with us. But, Em and I can whip one up for you, if you ever need one. And we also have lots of photographic proof of our craft, like these – two of my favorites of Em from the past week.



Man, the lighting on that boat was really great.

Do you have any craftiness to share today?

    No craft but, man, she looks like she could have been born there right on the beach. She has a beach, sun kissed glow.

    Oh, how fun and what great shots of your girl! Those are beautiful pictures of her. Those leis are beautiful, too.

    I made some clothes. Yesterday is was far too cold to go outside and I had the day off and the kids’ daycare was closed so I made Anya an outfit.

    Nothing as beautiful as a lei, but I posted a couple of cards this week.

    I really like the second photo. I love the profile shot of Em. It’s beautiful.

    No craft from me, or anything I can post just yet, as I’m working on a few projects for all the March birthdays out there! Wow, Em looks really grown up in that second to last picture- at least seven. Crazy!!

    Oh my goodness, Carrie! Emma is like an angel in the flesh…she is SO GORGEOUS! And so grown up. Seriously, wow. Oh yeah, the leis are pretty too, but your girl steals the show.
