saying goodbye

Next week Regan and I will have to say goodbye to two good friends. They are moving out of the country for the next 18 months and we do not know if they will return to this area after that or not. The past 6 months have seen a lot of friends moving on while we are still here but this move is proving to be a particularly sad one for both me and Regan.

Anyway, Regan and I decided we needed to do something special for her friend, Haley. I snapped a few pictures of the girls together last time we saw them and then headed off to Walmart for prints and Michael's for some craft supplies. Once we had finished up school this morning I pulled out the supplies and Regan and I had a great time decoupaging this frame for their picture.
We had some much fun making it, and it turned out so well, we might just have to go back to Michael's and get another frame and "Friends" sign so that Regan can have her own to remind her of her good friend!

In other crafty news- I spent the evening on the couch last night watching SYTYCD and finishing up these ornaments. I was trying to find a creative way to display them for a photo- but it is always a challenge to find a good spot in our house to take photo's, especially in the late afternoon- the sun is blinding the the front of the house and non-existent in the back- so here are some of my attempts to photograph the ornaments!
The ball ornaments are all my own design, but the bird is a free pattern that you can find here (under free projects in right sidebar). I just LOVE the Portabellopixie patterns that I have and Sandi's fabrics are absolutely gorgeous!
