Like most moms, if not all, I'm obsessed with my little one. She's the cutest baby in my eyes. The difficult pregnancy, months of avoiding sweets because I was borderline diabetic then, the 20-hour labor, and the C-section incision pain - all worth it! My phone and my iPad are full of pictures and videos of JK, and, yes, I'm a stay-at-home mom so that's expected. But, of course, pictures from phone cameras aren't good enough for preserving precious moments, so she had her first photoshoot with a pro photographer when she was 1 month old. That's actually one thing I regret, we should have done the photo shoot earlier, when she was 2 weeks old. I really admire those creative newborn pictures I see online. Anyway, it's my baby so the pictures are still perfect. Here are some of the pictures:
And that photo shoot was followed by 12 more studio shoots, to date, 1 for every month until JK turned one which was on October 30 of last year. We had her monthly pictures taken at Pic-A-Boo Photo Studio, SM North Edsa. They have a lot of beautiful costumes to choose from, but since we were there every month, there were times when we ran out of costumes that were her size that we really like, so we sometimes had to settle for a less fabulous one. That's when my crafty side was awaken again, I decided that I would just make costumes for my princess. Here are some of her pictures wearing the costumes I made for her:
So it has begun, I turned to crocheting costumes for JK, then hats, headbands, etc. And now, I couldn't stop, whenever I have free time, usually when the little rascal is asleep, I would crochet, but now mostly jewelries, do some paper arts, beading, etc. It's a really good thing that people share tutorials online, they will guide you in the right direction, whatever it is that you want to create.
Well, I have always been crafty, I used to make my own jewelry boxes, desktop organizers, Christmas ornaments, etc. when I was still at school. Anyway, since my love for crafts started again because of my baby, it is only fitting that this is my first post for this blog, which I intend to make at least 75% about crafts, mostly crocheted jewelries, which is my current obsession. (If I can stop myself from posting everything about my princess.)
I'll try to write about the costumes I made for JK if I could still find the links where I got the patterns or tutorials from. So, until my next post. Ta ta for now...
