A Pretty Cool Life (guest post)

Another treat for you today! Cheryl from A Pretty Cool Life is probably one of my coolest friends. Not only is she gorgeous outside and inside but she is so great with crafts. I wish I had half the talent of this lady! You're not talented in the craft department either? Well, you may surprise yourself after you read this dandy of a post about alphabet bean bags (all you MOPS, homeschoolers, or those needing a gift for a little one, pay attention).

I made alphabet beanbags for my boys yesterday afternoon.
I got the idea here, but changed a couple things like the size and my own stencils.  They were fun and easy to make...my favorite kind of project.
But they're even more fun for playing.
And you know a project was a good one when even your scraps are pretty.  How much of a freak am I that I stood and looked at these debating whether or not I should throw them out?
(I did...  Eventually.)


Aren't those little beanbags great? I think if I start now, I could have a set made by Christmas for Squirt (I'd be sewing by hand mind you). Want to see Cheryl's talent put to good use? Check out her Etsy store! And be sure to stop by her blog to say "hi" from me!
