Hi Jenn, welcome to the group. That is really cool that you are fostering 2 kids to adopt, are they siblings?

Your Christmas gifst sound cute - did you take pictures? Have you shared them here? We love to see projects. 

Quoting ldylancer03: Hi. My name is jenn. I am currently a sahm to a 7 year old boy and two foster to adopt kids ( 2yrs and 10 mths) so I don't always find time. But when I do I like to scrapbook book and make cards but also try new things. This year we did string art, playdoh for the kids and a bunch of crafts for family. Painting on plates and mugs for christmas. Can't wait to get started in this group and see some ideas!!!

knittingsewingI just finished making some crochet and arm scarfs for Christmas gifts. I'm going to dedicate the month of January to sewing. I have a new serger that I need to learn how to use. I want to make some soy wax candles also.

Good morning!  My name is Beth & I've recently returned to the world of crochet.  I used to enjoy counted cross-stitch, but as I age, I've found that my eyes aren't as cooperative as they used to be!  I've been married for 17 years & have a blended family of 2 girls & 2 boys.  We were blessed this past Labor Day with our first grandchild, which has been the spark for me to return to crocheting.  I'm planning on working with my mom & sister to crochet items for fall craft bazzars & if that goes well, I might enter the world of opening an Etsy store.  I'm looking forward to hearing about different items that everyone is making!

Welcome to the group and congrats on your new grandbaby. I hope you have fun getting back into crocheting, I am going to try and learn to do it this month, I have some yarn that it says it is easier to crochet than knit. WE will see how it goes.
