Crocheted Baby Sweater

This is a little sweater my mom made for me when I was 3 years old.  It is a perfect example of an arts and crafts project because it was handmade and it has design elements.  The sweater has a  vibrant complimentary color scheme of orange and blue.  Stripes of white relax the color scheme and make the orange and blue even more vibrant.  It is one of my most treasured possessions.  This is the power of arts and crafts.   There is something special about receiving a gift that was handmade with Love. 

I Found Collectible Christmas Books for 25 cents!!!

I found a great deal at an After Christmas sale. Christmas jigsaw puzzle books selling for only 25 cents!!! I picked them up at a craft store last week.  You can't beat the price.  I know if I keep these in good condition, they'll be worth a lot one day.
