The Martha Stewart Side Of Me: {Knitting Machine}

At the end of January I signed up with the Good Goes Organization when I heard about their Caps for Good campaign. They were asking everybody to knit baby caps to be sent to Asia, Africa and South America. I immediately felt passionate about it and asked everybody if they would knit with me. I’m excited to say that on Friday I sent 94 baby caps in the mail!! I knitted 36, Sharon my mother-in-law knitted 41 and some ladies from church contributed 17 to the cause. Thank you to everybody who participated!
Al final de Enero me isncribi con una organizacion humanitaria que se llama Good Goes cuando escuche de la campaña Caps for Good. Estaban pidiendole a todos que pudieran tejer gorritos de bebe par ser enviados a Asia, Africa y Sur America. Imendiatamente me entusiasmo la idea y le pregunte a mis conocidos aqui si querian tejer conmigo. Estoy super contenta de contarles que el viernes mande en el correo 94 gorritos!! Yo teji 36, Sharon mi suegra tejio 41 y algunas chicas de la iglesia contribulleron 17 gorritos. Gracias a todas las que participaron!

The Martha Stewart Side Of Me: {Baby Shower}

Last Saturday I hosted a baby shower for one of the ladies I visit teach. We had a great turn out. She was super excited about this little celebration. Food was amazing too, that’s always a plus! Since it was at my place I wanted to make some decorations. With the help of my awesome and supportive husband I made paper topiaries. They turned out really cute, they were a hit! I also bought baby socks to use as decor.
El Sabado pasado me toco hacer de anfitriona en el baby shower de una de las chicas que visito como maestra visitante. Ella estaba super entusiasmada por esta pequeña celebracion. Todo salio super bien, hartas chiquillas vinieron. La comida estaba divina, eso es motivo de celebracion por si solo. Como fue en mi casa quize decorar bonito. Con la ayuda de mi super bakan esposo hize unos arbolitos topiarios de papel. Nos quedaron divinos, causaron furor! Tambien compre calcetines de bebes para usarlos de decoracion.
