A Grandson's Mini Vacation

Last week my son and his wife took a short mini vacation and left their son in the care of his two loving grandmas. He slept over at Grandma Irina's and visited Grandma Carla and Pop Sandy. It's is so nice that we live very near each others' home. While here he played in our kiddie pool and his 12 year old aunt took pictures of him. She is just learning to use the camera and did very well. See for yourself!

These are scrapbook pages for my grandson's album. He had a blast and so did his auntie!

Scrapbook Pages for Grandson

Last month we met our California family for the first time. They have a little boy who will be 3 soon and our grandson will be 4 soon. We all toured St. Augustine on the Red Train and enjoyed our lunch getting to know each other at the Columbia Restaurant on St. George Street. Each little boy wore a shirt that I embroidered with a small train. What a fun day we all had. Here are the two pages of that day, made to put in my grandson's scrapbook.

Father's Day Cards

After designing a card for my son using an origami shirt, I put these shirts on some previously handmade cards. It gave them the contrast and zip they were lacking.

For a Wonderful Son on Father's Day

 Here's a Father's Day card for my son, a great dad!

Ever since my grandson was born, I've looked forward to Father's Day. My son is such a wonderful daddy and the holiday gives me an extra special chance to be creative and show my love for him. Here are two machine embroidered tee shirts for my son and grandson. My son loves to match his little boy. My Brother SE-350 embroidery machine helps me to make great gifts from plain tee shirts.

Special shirts for special boys!
A special gift bag!
These embroidered designs come from the Embroidery Library online. They have quality and a great variety of wonderful designs to choose from.

You can find many many tutorials online to make the origami paper shirt. I used a 4"x6" paper to start with. Sometimes people make them from dollar bills and leave them with the tip at restaurants!
