Quiet Books

So my friend from college, the fabulous Jolene, came to visit me for a couple weeks with her son Kai. We had a WONDERFUL time hanging out and visiting, crafting, redecorating, and whatever else we could motivate ourselves to do! We redid my bedroom (after pics to come, of course I totally forgot to take before pics, which is really quite sad because it was a LARGE transformation!) and made quiet books for our kids for sacrament meeting! They turned out SO SO SO cute, but it was kind of horrible because we had no idea what we were getting ourselves into! The entire project ended up taking almost the entire time she was here! I thought a one-two day project tops. NOT EVEN CLOSE! Anyways, here's a few pics of the cute little things (and some of our kids too :) they're pretty cute as well):

A purse for Brook, of COURSE. I'm not sure what's going on with her eyes in this pic....
And a backpack for Kai!
I'm so glad you came Jo! Love and miss you two!!!

Those are SUCH CUTE BOOKS! One of these days I want to make one for Shaelyn, but not until I'm done with school cause I KNOW they're a lot of work. You'll have to send me the pattern you used! Good job Dena!

No Fair! And you didn't invite me?! :O How dare you ;) - I guess you'll just have to give me a pattern.

By the way, I love Brook's expression in the last photo! She doesn't look too happy that Kai is leaving :D
