Cabana Bag - Knit with Fabric Strips

I recently finished a custom order for one of my Etsy friends, JG Edge Wear. I wanted to post the finished product, because I have never made anything like this before. The custom order was for a cabana bag made by knitting fabric strips together and then sewing the lining and handles. It was a fun project and helped get me back into knitting, something that I had not done in years!

Winter Birthday Bash!

My nephew turned 5 on New Year's Day. We went over for a birthday bash. We tackled a pinata, made a foam snowman picture, went on a treasure hunt, went sledding, threw some snowballs, and made beautiful art in the snow with snow paint. My little guy only went down the hill once sledding, but he made snow art until all of the paint was gone! However, I think that his favorite winter activity is throwing snowballs!

And, I loved the birthday cake too!
