These are becoming a favorite around here!
I was invited to a baby shower last fall for – okay, follow along here – the daughter-in-law of my mother-in-law’s best friend. I had never met Carley before, but know her mother-in-law quite well; she has appointed herself honorary grandmother to my daughter! Because I didn’t know Carley, and wasn’t at all sure what she and her husband might need for their baby, I decided to make her a baby book. I remembered that when I had Emma, I was so grateful someone had bought me one, since otherwise I never would have gotten around to it. And hey, who doesn’t love to show off in a room full of strangers? Not obnoxious at all, right?
So because I’d always been intrigued by the lunch sack books I’d seen around, I thought this was my excuse!
It was a HUGE hit, so much so, one of the guest of honour’s friends approached me at a wedding shower for – follow along again – Carley’s husband’s brother’s fiancee (now I am just having fun with you), to see if I would make one for her sister who is expecting any minute now. For sure! So here are pictures of the second book I made, which actually led to a third for a friend who had her baby in January. I was out to lunch (I claim pregnancy brain!) and didn’t take photos of either the first or the third ones I made, so you’ll have to settle for these.
