Crayola Folio and one for the Boys

I really liked this idea of an art portfolio I came across on Etsy and so purchased the pattern to make one for each of my girls for Christmas. When I got on Sat. to purchase the pattern I decided to have a look at what other items this seller had and knew I had to get this pattern as well. The minute I saw it I knew it was the perfect Christmas present for my youngest who hasa fedish for all things paper and pen related. I had planned to put together some kind of art tote for her for Christms and seeing this took the guess work out, now I can get  on to the fun part....sewing.

The girls and I attended a local craft event and I allowed Ivy to pick out a fabric she liked and used it to find a corrdinating print. As soon as we got home and I got al four kiddos down for the night I set to work on the crayon art folio. I will get a friend to watch both girls when I do the Art Tote so that it is a complete surprise to Ivy Christmas morning...I can't wait. She is going to LOVE it!

Another completion for the weekend was to finally get the balloon balls made for my boys. They are such good sports about waiting and I have felt so bad taking so long getting them made. They had a blast yesterday playing with them though.
