crafty?...

I use the line, "I could eeeeeeasily make that!" a lot.
{It's actually become a bit of a joke between Brock and I...example: after Trey and I flew back to Alberta, and I realized how FAST it is I said I wish we had an airplane...and Brock chimes in, "I could
eeeeasily make that!"-whatever!} 
I see things I think are cute and I feel like I could make it for less then the price tag...usually. I will admit, I am pretty sure a couple of these projects have ended up being a bit, or a lot, more...but most of the time I can somewhat replicate it for WAY less!
So the other day I was in this adorable baby boutique and saw the cutest mobiles! Checked the tag...yep, $80! Ouch! So I decided I would attempt to make one...
Sometimes I like to think I am "crafty" but other times I feel like it is more on the "crappy" end...
this one I am not too sure?...BUT it was a lot less then $80!
{clothes hanger- free! buttons-1 lbs bag for $3 from Walmart! Thread- had it...so free! Paper- $10 for a 50 page book of cardstock from Winners!}
It probably doesn't look like it but I spent like 5 hours on this thing, I got a little bit crazy trying to make a good bird shape and Brock thought it was funny when he said, "Um, Amy...are you sewing paper?"...
At least I can imagine Trey likes it...he doesn't cry when he looks at it, 
so that must mean something good right??

It turned out so cute! Great job! I know just how you feel. All of the time, I'm like..."That doesn't look so hard. I bet I could do it". Epic fail to follow. Other times, it works out! Keep up the great work :)

Pretty freakin cute Amy!! I am always thinking how I could make things but I am just not creative enough! I would need someone to teach me how to make everything. Great job!!
