I love making gifts for people. I tend to get in over my head, but it always feels so great to give someone something that I've created. Right now I'm definitely in over my head, but I wanted to post Everett's completed projects. My mom got him some Perler beads a while back, and he wanted to make things every day. We were busy during nap time for a few weeks with his creations. He's used up most of the beads, and I think I've done more ironing in the past month than throughout the rest of my married life!
Everett decided to make Christmas gifts for his sisters, grandparents, and some of his cousins. Since most of the recipients don't look at the blog, I figure it's okay to post a picture here. I also wanted Gracie to be able to see Everett with her gift since she lives so far away.
It was Everett's idea to make the necklaces with the three diamonds. He wanted to make princess necklaces for the girls.
We were making a heart for Andrew. After we had finished a small heart, Everett asked me if Andrew was a baby or a big kid. I said he was a little younger than the girls. Everett said, "Mama, we have to make it bigger so he can't eat it!"
He is so excited about these gifts that it took some persuasion to get him to wait until Christmas to give them away. He has already given away lots of his creations.
