Cuteness Everywhere I Look!

Well, seems I'm overrun with cuteness the past couple days, which is never a bad thing!

Cute thing #1: A little soft book I made for Riley
I thought it would be a quick project, but it took longer than I thought. However, I'm pleased with the results, and I got to use all kinds of fabric from my fabric stash! As you can see, it's a little picture book about cooking and eating. I also bought some more fabric with pictures of little boys wearing different costumes, with which I'll make another more "boyish" book.

Cute things #2 & #3: Two skirts I bought yesterday
Not much explanation- the first one came from Ross, the second from American Eagle.

Cute things #4: Little tins I bought today
I saw these little tins at Ben Franklin. They're the absolute perfect size for CD's, and they were only $2.44 each, so I bought a few!

The cutest thing of all: Photos I got back of Riley
Please indulge me while I show these photos... Hey, my mom reads, too, so she'll be interested!

You're right, there is cuteness everywhere! Those skirts are super-cute. I've been thinking of making some sort of like that. And who'da thought of making your own children's books? Clever!
