Baby Giraffe Graphghan

I am so excited to be starting my very first graphghan.  I have been following a few bloggers and am a member of the facebook page, Graphghans Unlimited and love the art these talented ladies create!  This morning the owner of Graphghans Unlimited released a free graph for an afghan titled “Baby Giraffe”.  It is so cute that I have decided to make this one my first!

This is my first little bit.  It took 45 minutes to do 4 complete rows and they are all in black (my chosen color for the background).  Wish me luck!

Noon Art

I partner with a friend to put on noon art at our elementary school twice a month.  This week we did ghouls from “crafts by amanda“.  They kids had soooo much fun!!

We reach between 150 and 200 kids each time.  Leading noon art is such a fun way to volunteer my time!
