The final vinyl project -- welcome baby Jentry

With work and quilts and kids and school and activities and all of the other things that seem to occupy my time, it is hard to squeeze in much more. That being said, after months on the to-do list, I was finally able to get to this vinyl project to welcome baby Jentry.

Several years ago, I made a similar frame for her big brother Jax to match his nursery. Jentry's grandma sent me a photo of the crib quilt used in her room that I used for inspiration. I cut the vinyl and applied it to the mat of a store-bought picture frame. I included the baby's name, birthday, and other pertinent stats. It's a fun keepsake to show off one of new baby's photos.

This was the last hurrah for the vinyl business. Even though I said Janurary first of 2012 was the end, I had several customers that needed "just one more". This is it! Closed for good! While it was fun and a great creative outlet, there are just too many other things that occupy my time. Goodbye vinyl business, HELLO more time to get to those quilty projects!

Merry Christmas to all!

The cookies are baked, the beaters are licked. The stockings are hung, soon to be Saint Nicked!

The Bussard house is full of anticipation as we impatiently await Santa's visit. I've only heard, "Can we open presents yet????" about 72 times today, and it is only the 23rd. Since we are going to Grandma and Grandpa's house, we did put in a request to Santa to deliver a day early. Hopefully he will come through for us!

I've packed my quilt projects and all the project photos I've been taking with hopes to get caught up on posting a few things. I hope to start the new year all caught up!

Wishing you all a Joyous Christmas!

David, Tina, Alexander and Nicholas
