Too Much Cuteness!

Last year I had three cousins and my brother getting married, this year I've got four cousins and my brother (different brother) having babies! Three of the babies are little girls, one we are not sure yet, and my brother is having a little boy!:-) I'm so excited about this, as much as I love my little niece, I knew I would love this second one just as much whether it was a boy or girl, but it will be so fun having one of each now! So with all of these little ones coming, I knew I wanted to knit something for them. I found this book, Simple Knits for Cherished Babies, on amazon and decided to get it. I'm so glad I did, it is beautiful! If you are a knitter, I would highly recommend it! The patterns are easy and really beautiful at the same time. On the cover of the book were the most gorgeous little ballet slipper booties, and I knew I had to make them as soon as I saw them.




Here are my pics of the finished pink and purple ones, I also made a pair in cream and another in yellow. I absolutely love how they came out, they are so tiny and just too cute! I hope my cousins will like them, I sent them off with some matching onesies:-)

Enough about knitting, here is one of the cards I made for one of my cousins.



The image is one I came up with for them, I love the pink and brown combo!:-) All the paper is from a Nana's Nursery pack I picked up at Joanns, I love this paper! Its perfect for baby girls of course, but I've used it for so many other types of cards as well. Hope you all have a great day and thanks for stopping by!:-)
