On Friday, February 3rd, Sage & Jonah tested for their blue belts. They both did really well! Last Monday, they received their promotions-- I'm so proud of how well they're doing!
When I gave Sage her 18" doll for Christmas, I'd mentionned how there was a taekwondo outfit that you could buy for her, but I thought that maybe I could make one instead.... So I found a pattern for some pyjamas and a robe and decided to modify that instead... Easier said than done, though! I must be too used to sewing on paper, because sewing that little outfit was a challenge! LOL! Shortly afterwards, I called my mom to thank her for all the doll/Barbie clothes she sewed for me when I was little! Here are Sage & Alex (her doll) posing in their blue belts:
And while I'm sharing some taekwondo pictures, I thought I'd share the layout I made today, using this week's Make It Monday at Papertrey Ink: Glitter buttons. At first, Ashley suggested that we use spray adhesive & glitter (of which I have none and the stores are closed today), but then she showed how she added some glitter to her buttons using stickles. I had purchased some Dazzling Details from SU! before Christmas, so I added some of that to my buttons.
I used PTI cardstock (rustic white), buttons, twine, stamps & dies (tiny tags II). I also used Crate Paper patterned paper, a My Mind's Eye decorative brad & Sassafras (grey) & Jillibean (red) alphabet stickers.
Thanks for looking!
